I presented at the 2021 iDMAa: Broken Media conference at Winona State University with the paper: "Glitches as Markers of Authenticity in AI-generated Images."
I was a guest speaker in Tia Simone Gardner’s Cultural Politics of Difference class at Macalester College, addressing issues of technology, racial bias, and digital difference.
I was invited to moderate a conversation organized by the Walker Art Center between filmmaker Shalini Kantaya and Meredith Broussard (NYU). We discussed Shalini’s film Coded Bias, and the issues of racial bias and algorithmic discrimination it explores. This talk was part of the exhibition Designing for Different Futures, at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis MN.
