What do media and technologies mean for the colonized, racialized, and dehumanized? How do we interpret, use, or embody them in ways that go against the grain of colonial logic? How do we rewrite our histories decolonially by taking a close look at their materiality, representation, aesthetic form, and ontological structures? This seminar looks for media and technologies that reverse modern/colonial agencies and explore resistant subjectivity.
