I will be speaking on November 3, 2023 at a Boston University Law Review symposium: Information Privacy Law at the Crossroads. From the symposium description:

This symposium aims to gather leading privacy scholars to examine the current state of privacy law and theory and explore its direction. With the introduction of the first bipartisan omnibus bill in Congress in a decade, President Biden calling for better privacy legislation, and states enacting a flurry of new privacy laws, it is an excellent time to revisit privacy law’s commitments and map its future in a world where people are exposed and exploited like never before.

The symposium will ultimately be in a published volume of the Boston University Law Review.  I’m writing the introduction with Professor Woodrow Hartzog (BU Law School), and our essay is titled, Kafka in the Age of AI and the Futility of Privacy as Control. Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting our draft on SSRN soon.
