Eddie Glaude Jr., chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University, and Ruha Benjamin, associate professor in the department, engage in conversation at the launch of Benjamin’s new book, “Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code.” In the book, Benjamin cuts through tech-industry hype to understand how emerging technologies can reinforce White supremacy and deepen social inequity.
Also discussed will be “Captivating Technology: Race, Carceral Technoscience, and Liberatory Imagination in Everyday Life,” which Benjamin edited. “Captivating Technology,” Benjamin writes, “brings together an incredible set of scholars to explore the interplay between innovation and containment across a wide array of social arenas, past and present.”
Copies of the books will be available for purchase from Labyrinth Books. To register for the event and for additional information click here.
