Digital Humanities Speakers Series: Workshop on "Surveillance and its Rhetorics: Strategies for Response and Resistance"


Surveillance and its Rhetorics: Strategies for Response and Resistance

One of the ways we can start to challenge surveillance culture is by making its mechanisms visible. Modern surveillance tools make it challenging, if not impossible, to pinpoint the characteristic(s) against which the tool has been programmed to discriminate.This workshop will discuss strategies for averting the risks and inequalities proliferated by surveillance culture. In particular, we will explore processes of data collection and dissemination, assess our own participation in the surveillance machine, and test strategies for response and resistance.

Location: Helmerich Browsing Room - 109H OSU Library
(please RSVP by 2/18 to humanities@okstate.edu)
