Draw a Black Line through It: On the Surveillance of Blackness

Simone Browne, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Texas, Austin
Thursday, February 11, 2016
4:00-6:00 PM
Gallery Hatcher Graduate Library Map
Situating blackness as an absented presence in the field of surveillance studies, this talk questions how a realization of the conditions of blackness—the historical, the present, and the historical present— can help social theorists understand our contemporary conditions of surveillance.

Simone Browne is Associate Professor in the Department of African and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. She teaches and researches surveillance studies, biometrics, airport protocol, popular culture, and black diaspora studies.​
