4. Call for Submissions: Crowdsourcing and the Decline of the Individual. The College of Law & Business and the Law & Ethics of Human Rights Journal are inviting abstract submissions for a symposium on “Crowdsourcing and the Decline of the Individual”. The call is here. They define crowdsourcing broadly to reflect both the power and vulnerabilities of crowds in the technological age. The symposium aims to shine a light on the reliance of governments and corporations on crowds to produce and curate content, collect information, provide a service, do a job, become the product. Alongside the empowerment new technologies afford to individuals, the workshop seeks to engage with the parallel disempowerment of the individuals who form part of sourced crowds, caused as a result of the undermining of fundamental liberal institutions such as property, privacy and expression.  The workshop will be held online on 11 – 13 January 2022. 300-word abstracts to be sent to shellykr {at} & tamarm {at} by 2 September 2021.
