This post is not to do with the upcoming Graphic Justice One-Day Symposium, but is about a related project that some of you may be familiar with: GikII. It has been kindly pointed out to me that GikII focuses its interest on the intersections of law, technology, and popular culture, so there may be some fruitful overlap between the two projects. It certainly looks like a thoroughly exciting and engaging project! Check out the CFP for their upcoming September conference taking place in Bournemouth: http://www.gikii.org/?p=129
