The SSN board is happy to announce the 2017 Surveillance Studies Network Early Career Researcher award, for best paper published by an Early Career Researcher in Surveillance & Society in 2016 (aka the S&S Paper Prize).
There were two awards this year and they went to:
Tobias Matzner. 2016. Beyond data as representation: The performativity of Big Data in surveillance. Surveillance & Society 14(2): 197-210.
Liisa A Mäkinen. 2016. Surveillance on/off: Examining home surveillance systems from the user’s perspective. Surveillance & Society 14(1): 59-77.
The judges commented that these papers were outstanding from a very strong shortlist of eligible papers.
Congratulations to them both!
