Enlightening Lunch: Alexandrina Agloro

Alexandrina Agloro

Making Just Futures Irresistible

Wednesday, Sep 11
12 - 1 p.m.
Computing Commons 120, ASU Tempe campus

 
Abstract:
What we can learn from our ancestors, speculative fiction, and each other? And how can interactive media and games help us to sustain, heal, and liberate our communities and our movements? Alexandrina Agloro will share her work on how participatory design and community-based methodologies can contribute to the ways we think about organizing and implementing activism using interactive media as a decolonial tool. In a nonlinear exploration through Agloro’s various research projects, join us for rigorous whimsy that touches pleasure activism, migration, reproductive justice, and the multiverse of feminist technologies.
