Where the Body Ends
Dr. Williams’s project “investigates connections between technology and the body, particularly how these seemingly disparate entities relate to and impact the creative praxis of women-identified artists of color.” Her timely investigation of these issues is framed by a series of questions, which include “What are the implications of post-human theories on gender and race identity constructs in art and media cultures?” and “How do modern technologies shape how women-identified artists of color approach their work?” These questions lead to a deep inquiry into “intersectional histories of technology, critical gender and race theory in game design and gaming cultures, studies in advanced technologies of art and visual culture, theories of post-humanism, the body, cyborgs, avatars, and technological surrogate studies.”
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 6:30 pm, Dr. Williams will be available for a live Q+A session via Zoom. Zoom meeting information will be available on the day of the Q+A.
