Details

Since 2015 a group of research-active academics from Oxford Brookes School of Law have been investigating how the criminal law can, and should, tackle speech and images on the internet which are dangerous or offensive.

For Think Human Festival Chara Bakalis, Chris Lloyd, and Mark O'Brien will run a workshop with short talks on 'cyberhate,' 'sexting,' and the 'dark web' respectively. These talks aim to engage audiences in intellectual questions about the issues society faces in the internet age and how the law can engage with these pressing topics. This workshop is for anyone interested in issues of criminal law, internet regulation, the affects of social media, and the wider digital world of the 21st century.

Lunch will be provided at this event.

This event is age restricted to 12+
