  • Configuring the Networked Self: Law, Code, and the Play of Everyday Practice, by Julie Cohen (2012)
  • Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness, by Simone Browne (2015)

Priya shares, "my research explores how privacy operates in the digital age, but I’m finding much privacy literature, with its focus on individual control and data protection, stifling. These books animate my thinking and spark new directions for research."
