Media-N CFP – No Template: Art and the Technicity of Race

A decade ago, Beth Coleman and Wendy Hui Kyong Chun introduced the concept of race and/as technology.* Turning to Heidegger’s notion of techne as prosthesis or skill, Coleman and Chun imagine race itself as a technology that can be leveraged, a tool for navigating systems of power. This distances race from its mythological status as biological fact, creating a critical framework that returns historical agency to the individual and helps us understand how race and ethnicity function in the visual–and technological–world. Recently, the concept has received renewed attention as the intersections between race and ethnicity and the technological have come…

CAA 2020 Recap: Jevi

2020 Judson-Morrissey Fellows 2 DAYS AWAY. Hi! I’m Jevi, and this February I received the 2020 Judson-Morrisey Excellence in New Media Award from the New Media Caucus. My journey began on Feb 10, a few days before the conference began.
