Black Mirror is a science fiction anthology television series that explores the dark side of technology and its impact on society, often presenting a dystopian view of the near future. In this assignment, students will write a 5 – 61⁄2 page paper (double-spaced, excluding References) that critically analyzes the ethical implications of surveillance technologies as depicted in the TV series Black Mirror. Drawing upon their knowledge of criminology and the concepts covered in the course, students will examine how these fictional scenarios reflect real-world concerns surrounding surveillance and its impact on society. Through this assignment, students will develop a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between surveillance, crime prevention, and individual rights.
