UO Today #764 guest: Ruha Benjamin

Ruha Benjamin, associate professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, is the author of Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code. She discusses how new technologies encode old forms of segregation and gives some examples of bias in technology. Benjamin explains why humanists and social scientists should be integral participants in the tech industry. Benjamin gave a talk titled “Beyond Buzzwords: Reimagining the Default Settings of Technology and Society” on February 4, 2020 as the Oregon Humanities Center’s 2019-20 Cressman Lecturer. Her talk was part of the “Convergence: intersections between the sciences and humanities” series.
