11:45am12:45pmThe Fate of Content Moderation: Constitutional and Practical Implications of the Texas Social Media Law
TNH 2.123 (Beck Classroom)

The 5th Circuit recently upheld H.B. 20, Texas's law banning social media platforms from censoring users based on viewpoint. This has created a split with the 11th Circuit, which held that a substantially similar Florida law violated platforms' First Amendment rights. What does this mean for social media content moderation, and how might the Supreme Court approach these issues? Join JOLTT on Monday, October 17 for "The Fate of Content Moderation: Constitutional and Practical Implications of the Texas Social Media Law." This panel discussion will explore the ramifications of Texas's social media law from legal and technical perspectives. Lunch will be provided. Please see the link for more details and to RSVP.

12:30pm2:00pmExpanding Forms of Immigration Detention and E-Carceration: An Interdisciplinary Discussion
TNH 3.142 (Walker Classroom)

This panel discussion will consider the expansion beyond physical detention of migrants to new digital restrictions on liberty, including ankle monitors and intrusive reporting apps. The panelists will raise legal concerns regarding the rapid buildup of immigration detention and digital monitoring over several decades and will present videography of the impacts on migrants. The panel will also look at the overlap between the use of detention and surveillance in the immigration and criminal justice systems and offer insights from the perspective of work in the criminal justice system. It will further place detention and electronic monitoring into context by considering the history of violence and dehumanization of Latinos and other people of color. The panel will conclude by considering opportunities for further research and advocacy on these critical issues.
