Hi Emily,

I'm a Computer Science doctoral student at UOIT working in privacy.  I spent most of the first year of my program flipping back and forth from CS research in privacy to legal / humanities research in privacy.  Not only does this lead to disparate literature reviews, but it makes for awkward writing.

I created the following categories:

1. privacy onotologies, including frameworks etc... like those proposed by Solove, but also those proposed by Logrippo
2. applied privacy solutions, including P3P research etc... like those proposed by Cranor, but also those proposed by Tang
3. theories of privacy, including HCI research etc.. like those impacted by Nussbaum, but also Friedman

#1 is an even split between disciplines, while #2 is largely computer scientists and engineers, and #3 is largely social scientists / philosophers / political scientists with the occasionally computer ethicist thrown in the mix.

Hi all,

I am writing because I hope to tap into your collective knowledge and
networks related to privacy research. I am a doctoral candidate in
psychology and have been researching the theoretical aspects of
privacy, as well as other topics related to the social effects of new
media. If you or anyone you know is  doing work related to privacy
(psychologists as well as scholars from other disciplines) I would
love to hear what you're doing. Because this is such an
interdisciplinary field it can sometimes be difficult to know where to
look for the most current research.

Many thanks,
Emily Christofides
PhD Candidate, Applied Social Psychology
