Summary
US and Canadian sociologists, women's scholars, and other social scientists report from the overlap between surveillance studies and family sociology at the historical moment when individual and family privacy are being re-evaluated, and debates around individual rights and government and social good are more than usually contentious. They describe how other family members, neighbors, bosses and workmates, marketers, and government agencies watch people regarding such matters as emerging adulthood, gender, kinship networks, new technology parenthood, race and ethnicity, sexuality, surrogate caregivers, and young children.
