Nominated as the 2016-2017 Wilkin Chair, Paul Chwialkowski, Ph.D., will be the first presenter for the University of Findlay’s College of Liberal Arts’ Wilkin Chair Events. He will be speaking Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 8-9 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Chwialkowski’s speech on privacy rights for the 21st century will educate the audience on how individual privacy rights have diminished since Sept. 11. How rights both inside and outside your home have been compromised by law enforcement, and government agencies will also be discussed. He will address whether this trend can be reversed.
Chwialkowski is a professor of social science, criminal justice and public administration in the University’s College of Liberal Arts.
Other interesting Wilkin Chair Event speakers to be featured this fall will include Agnieszka McPeak, an assistant professor in the University of Toledo’s College of Law; and C. Antoinette “Toni” Clarke, a professor of law for Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law, who will discuss how the law protects and fails to protect privacy rights in interactions with the police and social media.
