Professor Sheldon Evans: Afrofuturism and the Metaverse

Professor Sheldon Evans recently spoke at “Afrofuturism and the Metaverse,” an event hosted by Microsoft’s Senior Corporate Counsel Group. Professor Evans’ prior work on virtual reality, virtual assets, and how this relates to gambling online served as a backdrop to discuss the future of Black identity, expression, and potential discrimination in online metaverse communities.

Forthcoming scholarship from Professor Evans includes:

“Towards a Federalism(s) Framework of Punishment,” Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology

“Punishment as Placebo,” California Law Review
