unCOMMON Salon: Charlton McIlwain: Processing Black Data: A Story About Civil Rights and Modern Computing

Black people are either invisible in the annals of computing and Internet histories or viewed as perpetual have-nots on the wrong side of the digital divide. This talk reconsiders Black people’s relationship with the Internet and modern computing by situating it within the history of the civil rights movement – a history that doesn’t merely parallel, but intersects with the development and evolution of computing.

Dr. Charlton McIlwain is the Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and an Associate Professor in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication. His research focuses on the intersections of race and digital media in the contexts of inequality and racial justice activism. He is currently working on the forthcoming book from Oxford University Press titled, Black Software: The Internet and Racial Justice, From the AfroNet to Black Lives Matter.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 | 6:30 pm | Bobst Library | Room 745, 7th Floor, AFC | Open to the Public | Light Refreshments will be served \ All are welcome! Please register if you plan to attend.
