Technology and New Media have become central players in the politics of our age, but they have a double edge. In this roundtable discussion, held in downtown San Jose, the Association for Political and Legal Anthropology convenes a panel of anthropologists, media activists, journalists, and technology experts to imagine politically conscious and legally savvy pathways through this new media landscape. The contradictions inherent in the utopian promises of social media require new forms of analysis, and anthropologists are poised to contribute to this emergent conversation.
