Surveillance & Society Relaunch!

The new issue of our journal, Surveillance & Society, is out now, and the new website is working (and has been featured by the designers of the Open Journal system which the site uses). We are still transfering all of the back issues, but the format is all correct…

6.1 Relaunch Issue: Revisiting Video Surveillance

  • 6.2 Surveillance and Medicine (end of February)
  • 6.3 Gender, Sexuality and Surveillance (March/April)
  • 6.4 Surveillance and Resistance (June)
  • 7.1 Open Issue (September)
  • 7.2 Performance. New Media and Surveillance (November/December)
  • 7.3 Surveillance, Children and Childhood (January 2010)
