Your Privacy – Your Rights?

In our digital world, the tension between our privacy and our rights is a matter that may be beyond our control. Should this change the way we live in the digital world? What are the ramifications? What are our rights? Constitutional expert Jeffrey Rosen will engage students in these questions, and an exploration of the changing landscape unfolding before us. How does the First Amendment Right to Free Speech relate to our digital lives? Should we all have the “Right to be Forgotten” on the Internet? This seminar will be a fascinating look at something students deal with every day. 

Jeffrey Rosen is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Constitution Center. He is a professor at The George Washington University Law School, where he has taught since 1997, and is the legal affairs editor of The New Republic. He is a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, where he explores issues involving the future of technology and the Constitution. He has recorded a lecture series for the Teaching Company’s Great Courses on Privacy, Property, and Free Speech: Law and the Constitution in the 21st Century.
Rosen is a highly regarded journalist whose essays and commentaries have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, on National Public Radio, and in The New Yorker, where he has been a staff writer. He is the author of several books including his most recent, as co-editor, is Constitution 3.0: Freedom and Technological Change. Rosen is a graduate of Harvard College; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law School.
This three-day seminar convenes high school students (ages 15-17) on the Aspen Meadows campus of the Aspen Institute in Colorado, creating a forum in which students can gain insight into timely and important topics.
