TILT Fellowships 2016/2017

In March 2016, an open call was issued to international scholars to apply for a TILT Fellowship for the academic year 2016-2017. We received quite a number of interesting applications from all over the world. After a thorough assessment procedure, the following three scholars have been selected for the TILT Fellowship: John M. Golden, Gregor Urbas and Gary T. Marx.

Please find below more information about the visiting professors.

John M. Golden

TiLT Fellowship John M. Golden

John is a professor in the School of Law of the University of Texas at Austin where he has been teaching administrative law, contracts, patent law, innovation-related seminars for law students and a seminar on science and innovation policy for undergraduates. He is holding a PhD degree in physics from Harvard University and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School.

Since 2011 John has been the faculty director for the Andrew Ben White ‘Draw Board’ colloquium series. He has also been a visiting professor at Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School and at the Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership of the College of Engineering of the University of California, Berkeley.

Gregor Urbas

TiLT Fellowship Gregor Urbas

Gregor is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Canberra, Australia, which he joined in 2013 after a decade-long academic appointment at the Australian National University, with previous research positions at the Australian Institute of Criminology among others. His main research specialization is in cybercrime, though he also has broad interests in other areas of criminal justice and technology.

In June 2013 Gregor gave a TILT visiting presentation on 'DNA Identification in the Criminal Justice System: Large Databases, Familial Matching and DNA Phenotyping'. His current research topics include: online child exploitation and investigation techniques, on which he is writing a country report for the Sweetie 2.0 Project involving University of Leiden and Tilburg University; obligations of private sector intermediaries such as Internet Service Providers in assisting law enforcement investigations, including in data retention; and the legal regulation of biometrics. Gregor’s teaching commitments are also focused on crime and technology, with an international perspective.

While staying at TILT, Gregor will be focusing on research themes as Covert investigation of online crimes, the use by police of informers to help infiltrate online crime groups with access often protected by strong encryption, TOR routing, contribution requirements and the use of the dark web. Other research themes include responsibilities of intermediaries such as ISPs and DNA and biometrics. Gregor will be with us from 7 September 2016 until 31 December 2016, with an option to extend his stay until 1 August 2017 if his research sabbatical at the University of Canberra will be approved.

Gary T. Marx

Gary is a Professor Emeritus from M.I.T and currently an itinerant and electronic scholar. He has worked in the areas of race and ethnicity, collective behavior and social movements, law and society and surveillance studies.

His book Undercover received the Outstanding Book Award from the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences and Gary was named the American Sociological Association's Jensen Lecturer for 1989-1990. He received the Distinguished Scholar Award from its section on Crime, Law and Deviance, the Silver Gavel Award from the American Bar Association and numerous other awards. In 1992 he was the inaugural Stice Memorial Lecturer in residence at the University of Washington and he has been a UC Irvine Chancellor’s Distinguished Fellow, the A.D. Carlson Visiting Distinguished Professor in the Social Sciences at West Virginia University, and the Hixon-Riggs Visiting Professor of Science, Technology and Society at Harvey Mudd College. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.   Beyond MIT, he has taught at Harvard University, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Colorado. He has also been a Visiting Professor at various prestigious universities and research centers all over the globe, both in the US, Europe as well as in Asia. He has taught in sociology, social relations, political science, law, psychology, urban studies and technology, science and society departments. He has lectured at well over 100 schools. He has been a research associate at the Harvard-MIT Joint Center for Urban Studies and Harvard Law School Criminal Justice Center, and a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (1987-88; 1996-97) and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (1997-98). In 1970, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and he has received grants from the National Institute of Justice, National Science Foundation, the Twentieth Century Fund, the Whiting Foundation, and the German government.

While in Tilburg, Gary is planning to work on the following topics:

  • Relationships between privacy and surveillance and the legal rights and wrongs they can involve
  • Consider how the rules and expectations about privacy and publicity are related to the materiality of what is to be controlled.

Gary will be at TILT for two weeks in 2017 as well as for two weeks in 2018. Gary will be with us during TILTing 2017 and deliver a keynote.
