SurvDH is a community of scholars dedicated to exploring the relationship between surveillance and the humanities, using an anti-colonial framework to analyze the ethics surrounding physical and digital surveillance methods, such as the use of algorithms, biometrics, social media, search engines, smart devices, and DNA. We examine the ways in which communities experience surveillance differently, based on factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic status by developing work (research, digital projects, tutorials, lesson plans, etc.) that encourages the ethical treatment of all members of our community.
