Welcome Week Concert Featuring Dean Alexander

Come finish out Welcome Week with a night of live country music outside on Walker Lawn! Admission is free and open to everyone.

Music was the driving force that would soon pull Alexander to Nashville, where he moved in 2006 with nothing, not knowing anyone. And now, music is his life: He’s in the studio working on a debut full-length for Elektra Nashville. And Alexander still can’t quite believe his luck. Or maybe, as you’re bound to conclude once you hear Alexander’s heartfelt, comforting, and deeply country sound, just inevitable.

* The Mass Surveillance Debate: National Security v. Privacy*

How does your understanding of the Constitution, particularly the First and
Fourth Amendment, apply to the question of whether the Government may
conduct mass surveillance of email and other electronic communications. It
is well established that the government may get a warrant to intercept and
store a specific individual’s information, but the question facing the
country and the courts is whether or not governmental agencies such as the
NSA should be allowed to intercept and store private citizen emails on a
massive scale without a specific court order/warrant for current or future
use. Issues you might consider addressing include: Are there times when
such a practice would be acceptable and times when it should not? What is
the value of privacy – that is why might individuals who are not “doing
anything wrong” want to keep their electronic communications private from
governmental oversight? Do the Fourth and/or Fourteenth Amendment to the
Constitution guarantee individuals a right to private electronic
communications? Should officials need to get approval from congress or a
special court to conduct electronic surveillance on a large scale?

Most importantly, whether or not you think the Constitution allows for
warrantless mass collection of electronic communications, what do you think
is the best policy on this issue that would balance the need for national
security and individual privacy.
