“Can a Person Get Some Privacy Anymore? The Technological Assault on the Implied Right to Privacy” will be the subject of a 2 p.m. lecture on Wednesday, Feb. 22, in the Urbana University Swedenborg Memorial Library, 579 College Way. The event and parking are free.
While the word “privacy” is not used in the U.S. Constitution, several amendments in the Bill of Rights have been used to protect the privacy of what one believes; the privacy of one’s home from housing soldiers or unreasonable searches; and protection against self-incrimination. During the presentation, Ryan Enlow, assistant professor of Political Science at Urbana University, will discuss the right of privacy as well as recent technological invasions of privacy by organizations and government entities.
Enlow holds both a BA and an MA in Political Science from Eastern Kentucky University. He has done graduate work at Wright State University and Walden University. Political theory and ideology, constitutional law, and the American founding are his primary areas of emphasis.
Urbana University is currently hosting a pop-up exhibit, The Bill of Rights and You!, which is part of Amending America, a national initiative exploring the power of the Bill of Rights and U.S. government. For questions about this program or the exhibit, call the University Library. 937-772-9313.
