Theorizing the Web presents: Surveillance of Black lives

Thursday, July 16, 2020

7 p.m. ET


Join Theorizing the Web for a powerful and timely dialogue: Allissa Richardson and Mutale Nkonde will discuss the layered and multifaceted impact of surveillance on Black people in the context of the Movement for Black Lives and the Covid-19 pandemic. Moderated by TtW Committee member Apryl Williams, this talk will demonstrate how facial recognition systems used in policing; tracing software associated with the pandemic; and Black death imagery have created a treacherous techno-mediascape that extends both state matrices of power and systems of racialized, anti-Black oppression in the United States. This discussion will stream live both on our YouTube page and on Zoom. A recording will be available on our website. RSVP to receive the Zoom link and reminders about future episodes of TtW Presents.
