Exciting Symposium coming up...

The Legal Intersections Research Centre (LIRC) warmly invites you to:

‘Posting’ the law: Emerging Narratives of Law and Justice within Social Media discourses

Presented by:

Cassandra Sharp, Jason Bainbridge, 
Kieran Tranter, Kate Tubridy, Yvonne Apolo, Olivia Todhunter 

Date:               15 September 2017
Time:              12.30 to 5.00pm
Building 67, Room 202 (Moot Court)

There is little doubt that new digital technologies have performed a dynamic function in metamorphosing culture, both positively and negatively. Public engagement within social media regarding issues of legality, political discourse, and identity serves to shape, (re)interpret and transform cultural expectations of law. This symposium seeks to invite specific reflection on the performance of social media in its role of transmuting or challenging understandings of law. The symposium is designed to particularly explore the work of narrative and/or discourse in the interaction of law and social media in contemporary communication. It will provide a frame within which law and social media scholarship can investigate themes such as: the role of discourse in transforming, mirroring, creating, and sustaining legal consciousness; the way law is framed (or questioned and critiqued) within social media narratives; and the extent to which meaning-making about issues of justice is complicated by social media platforms.

We warmly invite you to attend this event and to participate in discussions arising out the presentations.

Registration is free but places are limited.  Please register your intention to attend.
