“Calls to wrest the history and anthropology of computing, information technology, and digital media away from eurocentric analyses have been raised in the fields of STS and media studies over the last decade. We propose to revisit discussions that take us beyond the dominant developmentalist approaches to technology in the global South, weighing the gains that have been made to incorporate decolonial theory and practice. Our speakers present research focusing on questions of power, authority and legitimacy from both historical perspectives on global technological encounters and the contemporary context of 21st century capitalism.”
The event will be held Friday, November 4th 1:30pm to 5:30pm at 239 Greene Street, Floor 8, New York, NY 10003 .
