Theorizing the Web Presents: Surveillance of Black Lives
Dr. Allissa Richardson, USC & Mutale Nkonde, Harvard
Dr. 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 and professor of Digital Studies, Dr. 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 be streamed live on the TtW YouTube page and on Zoom. A recording will be available on our website.
