"LAW AND NEW MEDIA", édité par Christian Delage, Peter Goodrich et Marco Wan

Christian DELAGE

Issu d'un colloque organisé à New York en 2016 par la Cardozo law School (New York), la Faculty of Law de l'université Honk Kong et l'Institut d'histoire du temps présent, ce livre contient des contributions de trois doctorant.es de l'IHTP : Claire Demoulin, Thibault Guichard et Antoine Rocipon.


In this volume, international specialists from new and established domains of law, media, film and virtual studies address the emergence of the jurist in the era of digital transmission. Examining the jurisprudence of new visual technologies – from the cinema of the early twentieth century to the social media of our own time – this volume explores the multiple intersections of these visual technologies and the law from the theoretical insight they generate to the nature of law to the impact they have on doctrinal development.

Part One tracks the media, the technologies and apparatuses of modern law. It looks specifically at the acoustics of architecture, emblematic texts, films of trials, the prohibition of cameras in courtrooms and the rules of contempt, televised reporting of law, and the multiple fora and chat rooms of Facebook, vblogs, #hashtag law and the mobile-optimised web. Part Two examines the jurisprudential questions raised by new visual and virtual reality technologies of the 21st century. Will social media lead to social law? The force of legal remediation? Virtual courts and online judges? Paperless trials? Electronic discovery? All of these developments impact how we conceive of the practice of law.
