What is the relationship between technology and power? If technology is political, how can we decode its meanings? This course invites students to examine how race, gender, class and technologies shape and reshape one another. We will think technology broadly - as race and sexuality - and concretely - as machinery, cables, code, and medicine. Students will gain an understanding of the intimate relationships between media, technology, ideology, and political economy through close readings of, and creative, analytical writings on, the many tools that we interact with daily. We will read work from Black feminism, queer theory, materialism, technology and media studies. Authors may include Angela Davis, Gayle Rubin, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, Ruha Benjamin, and Frantz Fanon.
