Situated Embodied Resistance to 21st Century Necro-Techno-Colonialism

NEW FEMINIST LECTURE SERIES 2018

Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Saskatchewan presents New Feminist Lecture Series with Praba Pilar  “Situated Embodied Resistance to 21st Century Necro-Techno-Colonialism”

Praba Pilar will present a lecture and performance, which will address how contemporary technological corporations such as Facebook, Google and others form a global apparatus of surveillance capitalism; this is 21st century necro-techno colonialism that adapts the ‘salvation narrative’ to proclaim a future of liberation and instrumentalize faith. In this way, online data brokers convert biological life into an extra-judicial colony in service of exploitation, dominance and control.
