Privacy Praxis is an annual conference bringing together scholars, practitioners, representatives, and advocates from a variety of disciplines to discuss and develop privacy work rooted in the experience of the communities most impacted and the least consulted.
We envision this work to be built on multinational synergies based on shared experiences, patterns, and practices that have inspired (and in some cases halted) innovation.
Our conference is informed by our study of praxis and what we call the omni-modern perspective. The omni-modern perspective asserts that it is the communities who experience the impact (usually the kind that reinforces subordination and subjugation) that are at the forefront of creating authentic and sustainable solutions and new approaches to respond to, limit, and/or neutralize direct or collateral damage.
This all-modern approach recognizes that regardless of the period, marginalized communities are always ahead of what is considered “modern” given a specific time or space, as a matter of survival and flourishing. This conference seeks to leverage omni-modernity towards the end of enhancing and amplifying life affirming work beyond the confines of mere ‘survival’ through collaboration and network-world building.
