Since receiving her Ph.D. in 2003, Fania has been engaged in a search for healing alternatives to adversarial justice. She has taught Restorative Justice at San Francisco _s New College Law School and Indigenous Peacemaking at Eastern Mennonite University _s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. She writes and speaks on these subjects. The search for a healing justice also led Fania to bring restorative justice to Oakland .

CLA Hale Lecture Series
May 12, 2016
Thursday, May 12th 4-5:30 pm Eastman Hall 01-2000 The CLA Hale Lecture Series presents Katie Shilton University of Maryland College of Information Studies "I'm very concerned regarding the privacy of my users:" Influences on Privacy as a Professional Practice in Mobile Application Development Privacy is a critical challenge for mobile application development. Mobile applications are easy to build and distribute, and can collect diverse personal data. US policy approaches to data protection in the mobile ecosystem rely on privacy by design: approaches that encourage developers to proactively implement best-practice privacy features to protect sensitive data. But we don_t know what factors motivate developers to implement privacy features when faced with disincentives such as longer development timelines, markets for personal data, and tensions between data protection and data-enabled services. This project begins to identify these factors by investigating how mobile developers talk about and deal with privacy challenges. Interviews with developers and analysis of posts on developer forums reveal that developers are actively grappling with privacy issues. This talk will describe how developers define and legitimate privacy, and describe how knowledge of how to approach privacy problems is disseminated. Understanding the development of privacy as a professional practice can help us shape better guidelines for privacy by design, and broach challenges to the widespread adoption of privacy by design principles. FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Interpreters provided upon request subject to availability. Please make your request TODAY by going to Access.rit.edu.
