International Journal of Communication 
Publishes a Special Section on Privacy at the Margins  
The International Journal of Communication is delighted to announce the publication of a new Special Section on “Privacy at the Margins” on March 1, 2018 which includes 10 articles from international scholars.

Privacy is considered a human right, but achieving privacy in a networked age requires a certain level of privilege. This Special Section on Privacy at the Margins brings together nine original social science papers and an editorial introduction to reveal the complex dynamics—such as coercion and consent—that underpin a range of privacy experiences around the world.
Edited by Alice E. Marwick, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Data & Society and danah boyd, Microsoft Research and Data & Society, the papers presented in this Special Section of the International Journal of Communication use a diverse array of methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, to address issues and domains including workplace surveillance, interpersonal privacy, and government privacy processes. In order to “interrogate what privacy looks like on the margins,” the section explores privacy experiences in India and in Appalachia, and among Aboriginal Australians and Azerbaijani youth. Several papers account for the skills needed to be successful at achieving privacy, and the trade-offs required by those who both gain and lose from being visible. Notably, these articles challenge basic assumptions underlying privacy research and invite scholars to consider new facets of the problem.
