Digitizing Race, Pt. 2: An Exploration of Identity On Social Media
December 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm PST
Our one-day symposium Digitizing Race: Making Latinxs in the 21st Century explored how Latinx people navigate the digital realm and the issues at play when they are turned into data, as well as what could be learned about contemporary racism by examining these processes.
As we continue our discussion, we’ve invited activists, content creators, and scholars to discuss key issues at stake at the intersection of social media and Latinx identity, including how identity is constructed, performed and examined on social media platforms; the ways digital technology is used to tell new stories through cultural production and archiving; as well as the role that technology companies play in the surveillance and oppression of Latinx people.
