Michael Brown is an affiliated scholar in Drexel’s Center for Science, Technology and Society and currently dissertating in the Department of Philosophy at Michigan State University. His research explores different philosophical theories about the nature of technology, technological change, and the impacts of technologies on life generally, through the lens of captivity, carcerality and prison in particular. Brown examines the tools and techniques of surveillance and policing deployed by the prison industrial complex, and the artistic educational projects cultivated by prison abolitionists. Brown is also an organizer and archivist for a FreeSchool based in Detroit, Michigan.
