Technology is entangled in multiple ways with global politics, neither fully determined by power nor simply determining possibilities of action. The reading group explores vocabularies, methods and approaches to study these entanglements through collaborative discussion. It meets monthly, usually during the last Monday of each month, to discuss seminal books around these issues. Previous readings have included Ruha Benjamin’s 'Race after Technology', Donna Haraway’s 'Simians, Cyborgs, and Women', and Slava Gerovitch’s 'From Newspeak to Cyberspeak. A History of Soviet Cybernetics.' .
