As part of this year's discussion series:
TECH N' COLOR: Technology, Racism, Resistance
"Technology has always played a key role in changing the way we live. The Internet has changed the ways we communicate. Surveillance apparatuses have changed the ways people are monitored. Drones have changed the ways warfare is conducted. Biotechnology has created genetically modified foods. This discussion series considers how technology mediates, disrupts or reinvents expressions of race and racism. Has technology changed our perceptions of race while keeping racism structurally intact? Has racism migrated to new terrains? Has technology shifted social relations across race or intra-racially?"
