From electronic ankle monitors and predictive-policing algorithms to biometric surveillance systems, technologies originally developed for policing and prisons have rapidly expanded into nonjuridical domains, including hospitals, schools, banking, social services, shopping malls, and the digital sphere. 

Moving from traditional sites of imprisonment to arenas of everyday life, Captivating Technology culminates in a sustained focus on justice-oriented approaches to science and technology that blends historical, speculative, and biographical methods to envision and enact abolitionist and emancipatory futures.

Join Captivating Technology contributors for a discussion & launch party! Confirmed participants include Dorothy Roberts, Anthony Hatch, Tamara Nopper, Winifred Poster, Lorna Roth, Madison Van Oort, R. Joshua Scannell, and Ruha Benjamin.

Refreshments will be served. Books available for sale & signing.

Sponsored by NYU Law School, NYU Program on Critical Race + Digital Studies, NYU Anthropology, NYU Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law, Data and Society Research Institute, and AI Now Institute.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
