    Prof. Eden Medina

    The EECS Department welcomes Prof. Eden Medina, Associate Professor of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University.

    Medina will present a talk entitled "Just Computing: Global Perspectives on Computing and Society", on Monday, November 13 at 2:00 PM in the Ford ITW Room.

    Abstract: In this talk I present aspects of my new research program on the relationship of computers and justice. I approach this topic by studying histories of computer design, development, and use outside the United States, in particular in Latin America. My current book project, for example, looks at how scientists in Chile’s Medical Legal Service used a computer-based technique to identify the remains of those who had been disappeared and executed by the Pinochet dictatorship. Many identifications made by using this technique were subsequently shown to be incorrect. These misidentifications inflicted new harm on the families of the victims and eroded trust in how Chile’s democratic government was approaching the nation’s history of human rights crimes. Through this and other examples, I illustrate why it is important to bring non-U.S. perspectives and experiences to the study of computing and how such experiences enrich our understandings of what computers do in the world.

    Bio: Eden Medina is associate professor of informatics, adjunct associate professor of history and affiliated associate professor of law at Indiana University, Bloomington. Her first book, Cybernetic Revolutionaries: Technology and Politics in Allende's Chile, received the Edelstein Prize from the Society for the History of Technology and the Computer History Museum Prize. Her current research, funded by the National Science Foundation, investigates the intersection of technology and law in the domain of human rights work. Medina is an affiliated fellow of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School and a former Fulbright Specialist in Engineering Education.
