Do not miss the Scholar and Feminist Conference: "Subverting Surveillance: Strategies To End State Violence" on February 16-17 at the Diana Center at Barnard College, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. This conference will feature Simone Browne, Ruth Wilson Gilmore (CUNY Graduate Center, EES), Inderpal Grewal (Yale), Mariame Kaba, Cara Page (BCRW), Nandita Sharma (U of Hawai'i, Manoa), and Dean Spade.
According to Barnard's website, "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."
