Digital Scholarship in the Americas Series: "Addressing Human Rights Digitally—Ethical Dilemmas and Possibilities"

Mon, September 26, 2016 | 2nd Floor Conference Room, Benson Latin American Collection, SRH Unit 1

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join us for a workshop led by guest speaker Professor Angelina Snodgrass Godoy, University of Washington. As societies grapple with the legacies of state repression, access to accurate information about human rights abuses and other crimes can be a vital component of the right to truth. Disseminating human rights information digitally may lower many traditional barriers to access in important ways. But the broad sharing of sensitive information may also lead to other consequences, particularly in cases where it is impossible to secure consent of all those whose information is contained in historical archives. What are the promises and pitfalls of such work?

As guest speaker for the LLILAS Benson “Digital Scholarship in the Americas” series, Professor Godoy will also offer Digital Archaeology: Tools for Truth and Justice in the Wake of El Salvador’s Amnesty Law.

Free and open to the public.
