This will be an informal dialogue led by professors Anthony Hatch and Jennifer Tucker that will foster group discussion of the historical and social contexts in which people use technologies, specifically communication and visual technologies, to analyze and challenge racism.

Prof. Hatch is the author of Blood Sugar: Racial Pharmacology and Food Justice in Black America (forthcoming) and teaches courses on science and technology studies, critical social theories, and cultural studies of health and medicine.

Prof. Tucker specializes in science and technology studies and the history and theory of photography, and is completing a new book, Caught on Camera: A History of Photographic Surveillance and Resistance and, with Jennifer Mnookin (Dean, UCLA Law School), a Sourcebook on Photography and Law. Both teach in the Science in Society Program at Wesleyan.
