2018-19 Public Events Series: Social Securities

Social Securities will consider human security throughout history and into the present. What protections ensure a person’s or a society’s security? What situations render individuals, groups and communities insecure? Is security always to be valued, or can its loss create new opportunities for agency and discovery?

We seek ideas for possible speakers on topics such as:

– Architectures of security
– Arts in uncertain times
– Asylum
– Community conservation and change
– Cybersecurity
– Economic and job security
– Environmental security
– Food insecurity
– The future of higher education
– Health security
– Homelessness
– Human trafficking
– Intimate spaces and privacy
– Legacies
– Political security
– Public endangerment and law enforcement
– Risk and risk-taking
– Securing identity
– Security and stages of life
