I am working with numerous partners on a new body of work - the Techno-Tamaladas. We will be hosting three tamaladas in Emeryville to bring community together, make tamales, dialogue on biotic technologies of life, and share food.
I will be teaching in the 2019 Summer Institute of Performance Studies, Bring It In: Transnational Feminisms in Practice, at Northwestern University. Convened by Marcela Fuentes, this 5-day intensive will focus on interdisciplinary scholarship and artistic and activist practices.
Presenting the NO!!!BOT performance as part of the MsUnderstanding Media Series at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology.
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.
