October Cover to Cover: Debating Privacy in America

Join WACA's Cover to Cover conference call on Tuesday, October 23, at 2:00-2:30 pm ET, featuring Sarah E. Igo, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Program in American Studies at Vanderbilt University, on her new book, The Known Citizen: A History of Privacy in Modern America.

Every day, Americans make decisions about their privacy: what to share and when, how much to expose, and to whom. Securing the boundary between one’s private affairs and public identity has become a central task of citizenship. How did privacy come to loom so large in American life? Sarah Igo tracks this elusive social value across the twentieth century, as individuals questioned how they would, and should, be known by their own society.
