International Journal of Communication Publishes a Special Section on Privacy at the Margins
The International Journal of Communication is delighted to announce the
publication of a new Special Section on “Privacy at the Margins” on
March 1, 2018 which includes 10 articles from international scholars.

Privacy is considered a human right, but achieving privacy in a networked
age requires a certain level of privilege. This Special Section on Privacy
at the Margins brings together nine original social science papers and an
editorial introduction to reveal the complex dynamics—such as coercion and
consent—that underpin a range of privacy experiences around the world.
Edited by Alice E. Marwick, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and
Data & Society and danah boyd, Microsoft Research and Data & Society, the
papers presented in this Special Section of the International Journal of
Communication use a diverse array of methodologies, both quantitative and
qualitative, to address issues and domains including workplace surveillance,
interpersonal privacy, and government privacy processes. In order to
“interrogate what privacy looks like on the margins,” the section
explores privacy experiences in India and in Appalachia, and among
Aboriginal Australians and Azerbaijani youth. Several papers account for the
skills needed to be successful at achieving privacy, and the trade-offs
required by those who both gain and lose from being visible. Notably, these
articles challenge basic assumptions underlying privacy research and invite
scholars to consider new facets of the problem.
