Abstract or Description

Corporate policing technologies, together with bodies of knowledge about intervention and the judiciary system, make aggression visible in a particular way. Consequently, technologies in public transport can shape social spaces for the negotiation of norms and authorities because they can cast light forms of civil disobedience as hostile and potentially dangerous. Technologies therefore do not only perform their intended roles, such as “prevention,” monitoring, tracking, and surveillance. They shape and are shaped by the social spaces they are applied in, and do this in relation to existing bodies of knowledge.
