What is privacy? How much privacy do we need? What is the "right to privacy"? What role, if any, should the law play in protecting personal privacy? This seminar course addresses theoretical and historical perspectives on privacy and privacy law in the United States. Particular attention will be paid to information privacy, and the emerging dilemmas of privacy in an age of digital communications and social media. The course will culminate in a 30 page research paper on a topic of the student's choosing.
