Kelli Moore: “Visualizing the Battered Woman Syndrome: Affinities Between the Science of Expert Testimony and Visual Evidence”
12:30 to 2:00 PM, SBSG 1517

Kelli Moore is a doctoral student at the UCSD Department of Communication.  Her work deals with the circulation of photographic evidence in cases of domestic abuse. Working at the intersection of critical legal studies, social informatics and visual arts, she examines the role of digital technology on the production of visibility of battered women and situates these practices within ongoing debates about copyright, embodiment, and court-room aesthetics. Before coming to UCSD, Kelli was a Research Associate at the Center for Court Innovation in New York City.  This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Women's Studies.
