Designing Justice: Sexual Violence, Technology, and Citizen-Activism
My dissertation examines how citizen-activists challenge how the criminal justice system neglects assault by re-designing the objects used for self-defense, reporting, investigation, and punishment. Using archival, legal, and scientific sources, I uncover the social and legal impacts of four technologies: protective anti-rape devices, anonymous rape reporting apps, the rape kit backlog, and psychotropic drug treatments used on sex offenders.
