Sarah Lamdan, a KU alumna, author, and law professor at the City University of New York, will return to campus to discuss her research and book on data collection practices and their implication on privacy. Lamdan will present a public lecture at 10 a.m., May 4 in Watson Library’s Three West Reading Room.


Before becoming a professor, Lamdan was a law librarian and research analyst in private and academic libraries. A two-time graduate of the University of Kansas, including KU’s School of Law, she authored “Data Cartels: The Companies That Control and Monopolize Our Information,” a 2022 book from Stanford University Press which discusses how information analytics businesses exploit outdated laws to monopolize data.


The event is organized by the Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright with the support of the Office of Communications and Advancement and the KU School of Law. It is expected to spark discussion at KU about data collection practices and advancing user protections, particularly concerning third parties that are contracted with the university.
