Professor Rose Corrigan helped coordinate a scholarly workshop aimed at promoting interactions between sociolegal studies and pursuits in science and technology.
The workshop, “Identifying Gaps, Building Bridges: Fostering Critical Exchange Between Sociolegal Studies and Science & Technology Studies,” was held at Drexel on May 10.
Supported by the National Science Foundation, the workshop brought together scholars who have written in the fields of science and technology studies and Law and Society to discuss topics including Crime and Violence, Health, Energy and the Environment, and Gender/Race/Marginalized Societies.
The event drew participants from a wide number of institutions, including New York University, Northwestern University, the University of Michigan, the University of Pennsylvania and Vanderbilt University.
In June, Corrigan will present a paper at the Law & Society Association Annual Meeting in Toronto. She will present “Empirical and Theoretical Reflections on Forty Years of Sexual Violence Training Interventions with Law Enforcement Officials.” The paper resulted from work Corrigan is doing as a core faculty member of the Violence Against Women Research Consortium at Rutgers University’s Center on Violence Against Women and Children.
Corrigan is the author of “Up Against a Wall,” a book published by NYU Press in 2013 that examines policy initiatives have changed community responses to rape. She holds joint appointments at the School of Law and the Department of Politics at Drexel’s College of Arts and Sciences.
