On Monday 10 February Lonneke van der Velden, of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), will give a presentation in the context of VUB’s Law & Criminology Talks. Titled “Forensic devices for activism: on how activists use mobile device tracking for the production of public proof“, the presentation will describe the various ways in which a mobile phone application turns a problem, that of mobile device tracking, into a method for the production of public proof. Lonneke van der Velden is a PhD candidate at the Digital Methods Initiative (DMI) at the UvA. The event will take place between 12h00 and 14h00. More information here (pdf).
