New co-edited book on Surveillance

Communication Studies faculty member Rob Heynen just published a co-edited book on surveillance:

Expanding the Gaze: Gender and the Politics of Surveillance
Edited by Emily van der Meulen and Robert Heynen
University of Toronto Press, April 2016

Expanding the Gaze is a collection of important new empirical and theoretical works that demonstrate the significance of the gendered dynamics of surveillance. Bringing together contributors from criminology, sociology, communication studies, and women’s studies, the eleven essays in the volume suggest that we cannot properly understand the implications of the rapid expansion of surveillance practices today without paying close attention to its gendered nature. Together, they constitute a timely interdisciplinary contribution to the development of feminist surveillance studies.
