Race, Communities and Informers

Welcome to the first issue of 2017, the beginning of our 15th volume, 'Race, Communities and Informers', guest-edited by Simone Browne (University of Austin at Texas), Katherine Mckittrick (Queen's University, Ontario) and Ronak K. Kapadia (University of Illinois at Chicago). Simone Browne, who was recently awarded the Surveillance Studies Network book prize for her work, Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness, contributes the editorial.

Speaking of awards, also in this issue, it is also entirely appropriate that we recognise the pioneering achievements of Oscar Gandy, the great African-American scholar of Surveillance Studies, who has spent his career drawing attention to the racial and other inequities of what he called 'the panoptic sort'. We present a piece based on the speech he gave in response to receiving the 2016 Distinguished Scholar Award of the SSN.

We also have three more papers in response to our call on 'Surveillance after Security Intelligence After Snowden', edited by David Murakami Wood and Steve Wright (the first part can be found here) and finally, a selection of reviews of recent books in Surveillance Studies (the reviews can aslo be downloaded as a single file.)
