The Dossierveillance Project
How does dossierveillance affect the way in which one discloses information, interacts with those who produce such dossiers and the institutions who serve as guardians of these files? How is dossierveillance carried out? What roles do new media play and other information technology play in carrying it out? How do people in various contexts (workplace, hospitals, police stations, etc) experience it and what are the intersectional dimensions of such experiences?
We encourage submission from scholars/activists/researchers whose subject of research may be looked at/reexamined through the lens of dossierveillance. We especially encourage submissions that are based on scholarly and non-scholarly works that explore themes such as gender, class, immigration, sexuality, illness, disability, and race and racialization.
We are looking for stories/testimonies/articles that explain the connection between the dossier and dossierveillance with the following subjects: performativity, workplace surveillance, data motility and the digital archive, vulnerability and risk, disease management, policing, the constitution of disability, migration, workplace surveillance, self-surveillance, resistance.
