We are holding the IILAH Reading Group by Zoom for the remaining sessions this semester. If you would like to join online, please click here. Zoom is free to join and reasonably easy to use. We very much hope we can return to normal as soon as possible.
The IILAH Reading Group will recommence for Semester 1, 2020 on Wednesday 4 March from 1:00 pm – 2.00 pm (meeting fortnightly).
Our theme this semester is World Making: Technologies/Histories/Laws. All students, faculty and visitors are welcome to join. Readings will be posted below in advance.

Semester 1, 2020
This semester’s reading group examines texts concerned with the world-making potential of technology and law. In reading these texts, the reading group aims to explore both the role of law in the creation and maintenance of socio-technical imaginaries, and the role of technologies in creating and maintaining legal orders.
