Fordham University’s McGannon Center and the Fordham Law School’s Leitner Center (in conjunction with Professor Powell’s Law School seminar on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in a Digital Age) are thrilled to again host Georgetown Law’s Julie Cohen on November 20 at 4:00pm. She will present the findings of her recently published book, Between Truth and Power: The Legal Constructions of Informational Capitalism. In it, Cohen relies on an array of perspectives from law, political economy, communications studies, and science & technology studies to explore the ways in which “law and information technology are remaking each other.” After her presentation, acclaimed scholars Ari Waldman (NYLS) and Solon Barocas (Cornell) will join Cohen and Center Director Olivier Sylvain in a panel discussion of the book’s findings and arguments.
