Event details of Postmortem Privacy
21 May 2024

Prof. Anita L. Allen is the Henry R. Silverman Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy. A graduate of Harvard Law with a PhD from the University of Michigan in Philosophy, Allen is internationally renowned as an expert on philosophical dimensions of privacy and data protection law, ethics, bioethics, legal philosophy, women’s rights, and diversity in higher education. She was Penn’s Vice Provost for Faculty from 2013-2020 and chaired the Provost’s Arts Advisory Council. In this lecture, Allen will explain why the no-privacy-for-the-dead doctrine is untrue in tort law and beyond, and why it should be. It will identify interests warranting protecting and concerns about income, race and gender equity that must contour postmortem privacy.

The panel will include AlgoSoc Scientific Director, prof. Natali Helberger, along with dr. Marjolein Lanzing from the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam, and dr. Marijn Sax from the Institute for Information Law at the University of Amsterdam. The session will be moderated by AlgoSoc prof. Beate Roessler.
