a Scholar & Feminist Conference with Simone Browne, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Inderpal Grewal, Mariame Kaba, Cara Page, Nandita Sharma, & Dean Spade
February 16 & 17, Friday & Saturday
see program for times
This year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference will bring together a broad community of thinkers and organizers to grapple with the ever-deepening penetration of surveillance practices into everyday life, and ways to engage in self-defense against the militarized, racist police state’s demands for constant access in the name of “security” and public order. Sessions will focus on technologies of surveillance and self-defense; the normalization of the in/security state; and medical-legal surveillance. Our keynote speaker Simone Browne, author of Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness, will open the conference by grounding us in the prescient and deeply entrenched legacies of anti-black racism and white supremacy in state, social, and capitalist systems.
