Event description

Description

Technologies of Justice is a two-day symposium hosted by the Legal Studies Program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). The purpose of this symposium is to gain a more holistic understanding of the relationships between law, technology, and (in)justice. Law and technology are not only discrete sets of mechanical or institutional tools, but ways to apprehend and experience the world. Too often studies of law and technology are compartmentalized with a focus on a selected policy problem or area of expertise. Yet, it is impossible to fully appreciate such questions without the 'big picture' of how technology is conceived of, utilized, and altering our being in multiple areas of life--from private day-to-day activities to commercial and government operations. To this end, the symposium will be comprised of diverse panels exploring these questions in contexts such as labour and employment relations, immigration processing, cyberspace, engineering design, tribunal decision-making, evidentiary record-keeping, legal education, institutional practices, and the construction of intimacy and sexuality.

While the conference will primarily take place at UOIT's 61 Charles Street, the first day of the conference will conclude with a reception at the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery located in Downtown Oshawa.
