Video Title:
Personal Space: Afrofuturist Bodies and Beyond
Description:
Technology has come to shape how we live and communicate, to the point where our biological and social lives are now intertwined with the technologies we take for granted. These technologies have political assumptions built into them, but can also be inscribed with new politics by users. This panel explores the use of cyborgs, superheroes, and other Afrofuturist figures in shaping the technopolitics of body and soul. This panel is part of the Personal Space theme, as organized by the January 27-29, 2022 Claiming Space Symposium. For more information, visit https://airandspace.si.edu/learn/highlighted-topics/afrofuturism/claiming-space-symposium The @smithsonian Afrofuturism Series is a collaboration between the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture (@NMAAHC), and the @SmithsonianAfricanAr.
