Event Site

The Engelberg Center is joining with the High Line and Surveillance Technology Oversight Project to host The Normalizing Gaze: Surveillance from Drones to Phones, an online speaker series presented in conjunction with Sam Durant's High Line Plinth commission Untitled (drone).  The second High Line Plinth commission, Untitled (drone) is a large-scale fiberglass sculpture in the shape of an abstracted Predator drone, on view on the High Line through August 2022.

This biweekly online series, running through October 2021, brings together artists, activists, scholars, filmmakers, journalists, and more to demystify the twinned histories of surveillance and drone warfare in the US and examine routine examples of surveillance in our daily lives.

Fake Symposium - POSTPONED

November 11 & 12, 2021

The Fake Symposium has been postponed indefinitely as a result of COVID-19.  We hope to reschedule the event once in-person events can be held responsibly.  Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on twitter for the latest information.

While the law is often forced to make binary distinctions between what is real and what is fake, that distinction can be much more fluid in broader society. The Fake Symposium explores the distinction between the real and the fake in a number of different contexts, and how well that understanding in the legal context maps on to societal expectations.

The Engelberg Center also hosts the Innovation Policy Colloquium, a unique event focusing each spring on different aspects of the law's role in promoting creativity, invention, and new technology.
