The Future of Code Politics: Panel: Blackness, African Indigeneity and Computation
With Kalundi Serumaga, Ayantu Tibeso & Romi Morrison
Moderation & curation: J. Khadijah Abdurahman
How do we situate digital technologies in the long duree of settler colonialism and enslavement both within the African continent and the United States or Turtle Island? What is a black sense of place and how does it interrupt normative understandings of race and technology? What sonic archives from the black diaspora can destabilize the way we think about computation? Former radio DJ, journalist and Ugandan scholar Kalundi Serumaga, Oromo archivist Ayantu Tibeso and interdisciplinary artist, researcher and educator Romi Morrison will discuss each of these questions drawing from black feminist theory and african indigenous practices. The event will be moderated by J. Khadijah Abdurahman, founder of We Be Imagining, a project at Columbia University applying the black radical tradition to developing public interest technology.
