Jordon Tomblin

Jordon Tomblin is a graduate student at Carleton University in the department of Sociology & Anthropology and at the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) where his research specializes at the intersections of computing and social sciences. Tomblin was awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) scholarship for his work “Representing Hactivism: Security Intelligence and the Growing Concern of ‘Anonymous’”.

Tomblin holds a B.A. in Criminology from Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU). At the undergraduate level, his research focused on hacktivism, security intelligence, and hacker culture. His collaborative undergraduate work has been presented at international conferences, such as the World Social Science Forum 2013 (WSSF) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on the topic of sentencing persons associated with 'Anonymous' and judicial responses to their activities with Dr. Greg Jenion.

Tomblin is currently writing his M.A. thesis entitled The Rehearsal and Performance of Lawful Access, which explores the rise of Big Data Internet surveillance policies and policing practices in Canada and some of the ethical, legal and social implications of predictive policing model strategies that depend on accessing intimate user metadata for identifying criminal or deviant behaviour. His research focuses on issues of surveillance, intelligence-led policing and governance. Some of Tomblin's work at the graduate level has been presented at international conferences, such as the American Sociological Association (ASA) 2014 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, USA, and ASA 2015 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.
