Indiana Jones and the Illicit Trafficking and Repatriation of Cultural Objects

Shea Esterling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This special anthology of papers investigates the relationship of contemporary mass and communicative media, and legal practice, decision making and regulation. The volume has two main areas: representations of law events in mass media, and use of digital and video media in legal practice. Topics include the use of video and digital tools in courtroom proceedings, and consequent understanding of video as a medium; the use of media technology in court case management, and televised proceedings of court.

A special theme of the volume will be on how digital and new media, and audiovisual technology generally, can become a tool or accessory in mediating the process and outcome of legal administration and decision-making. However, the two areas, of mass and new media, will be seen as inter-related. Attention will also be given to the past, present and potential role of media in courtroom, mediation and client settings, and in case administration.
