  • Add to Calendar 2021-09-23 16:00:00 2021-09-23 17:30:00 Speculative Technologies Learning Community Image This year, the Digital Humanities Center is hosting a monthly learning community on Speculative Technologies for Liberatory Worlds to build capacity for what adrienne maree brown calls “radical imagination,” where “all efforts to bend the arc of the future towards justice, is science fictional behavior.” Build community with students, staff, and faculty and explore imaginative possibilities through hands-on activities, critical play games, and more. In this first session, we'll be playing with The Oracle for Transfeminist Technologies deck.  "The wisdom of the Oracle, embedded with transfeminist values," the deck's instructions tell us, "will help us foresee a future where technologies are designed by people who are too often excluded from or targeted by technology in today's world." Absolutely no experience with technology is needed.  Sign up to receive more information.  To express interest in this learning community, please fill out this short form, and we will be in touch with more information. The learning community will be held on the following dates (all Thursdays) from 4-5:30 PM: 9/23, 10/28, 11/18, 12/9, 1/27, 2/24, 3/24, 4/21. You don't have to attend every session--drop in when you can! The Digital Humanities Center is committed to hosting and supporting programming that reflects its core values of inclusivity, sustainability, exploration, and collaboration.
