"Lead Us Not Into Temptation: How the Law Copes with New Technologies"
Workshops : Social Implications of Digital Media Workshop

Thu., Oct. 28, 2010, 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Location: Hall Center Seminar Room

Technology reconfigures the role of human beings in social action in a way that demands rethinking moral responsibility. This workshop session explores that issue by applying two streams of social theory to a focused case study of the relationship between Internet technology and pedophilia. These theories foster two very different discourses, and analyzing them provides an unusually clear picture of divergent ideas about the place of technology in moral responsibility.
