I’m pleased to announce that I have been selected as the first Scholar-in-Residence for a new program at the Library of Congress created thanks to the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation Program on Demography, Technology and Criminal Justice. The focus area of the two-year position is “Information Technology vs. Privacy—The Impact on Criminal Justice,” and it will be based in the Law Library of Congress. Although I will be called a Scholar-in-Residence, it is a part-time position and I will continue to teach my full course load at GW. In addition to that, though, I’ll also be using some of the resources of the Law Library of Congress to try to foster public conversations about how new technologies impact criminal law and procedure. There’s a significant public education component to the project, and I’m sure I’ll be posting more about the efforts here at the blog.
