Unfortunately, this event has been postponed. 

This talk looks at how digital systems and labor, historically and in our current moment, can be a way to discuss citizenship rights. The talk will discuss an early example of transphobic algorithmic bias to explore how histories of the digital can connect with movements to protect people’s rights today.

Mar Hicks is Associate Professor of History at Illinois Institute of Technology.

Snacks provided. Please RSVP to

This talk is co-sponsored by the Gender and Sexuality Studies Cluster and presented by the Digital Humanities Pedagogy Graduate Student Workshop of the Kaplan Humanities Institute.
