Seton Hall School of Law to Conduct Second Life Program on Intelligence Gathering and Interrogation

Via Virtually Blind:

From the press release:

Seton Hall Law LogoNewark, NJ – Seton Hall School of Law will be partnering with the developer of a Second Life platform on September 17 to provide a virtual environment for people to join in on its Constitution Day program on “Interrogation and Intelligence Gathering.”

The program, developed by Professor Mark Denbeaux, will be webcast in a virtual Guantanamo Bay detention center on Second Life. The session is part of a Seton Hall Law pilot to provide an online platform for the discussion of constitutional, political and international issues.

The virtual detention center was developed with funding from the MacArthur Foundation and Bay Area Video Coalition by Nonny de la Peña, producer and director of the documentary “Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties,” and Peggy Weil, professor of interactive media at the University of Southern California.

If you are interested in attending on September 17, or visiting the build in advance, here’s a SLURL provided by Seton Hall. Note that the build appears to be very much a work in progress right now, assuming that the link is right. If anyone has a better link, please post it in comments.
