Subverting Surveillance: Strategies to End State Violence

The Scholar and Feminist Conference
Friday, February 16 - Saturday, February 17, 2018
The Diana Center, Barnard Campus

with Simone Brown, Dylan Rodriguez, Nandita Sharma, and Dean Spade

Barnard Center for Research on Women's Scholar and Feminist Conference brings together a broad community of thinkers and organizers to grapple with the forces of surveillance that oppress marginalized communities. It also strategizes ways in which these communities may engage in self-defense within a militarized, racist police state. Sessions will focus on technologies of surveillance and self-defense; the normalization of the in/security state; and medical-legal surveillance.

Keynote speaker Simone Browne, author of Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness, will open the conference by grounding us in the prescient and deeply entrenched legacies of anti-black racism and white supremacy in state, social, and capitalist systems. Cosponsored by Barnard Library.
