Voicing Erasure

(The United States, 2020)

Location: virtual environment

The Algorithmic Justice League, founded by Joy Buolamwini, asks in this provocative film: Is it okay for machines of silicon and steel or flesh and blood to erase our contributions? Is it okay for a machine to erase you and me? Is it okay for machines to portray women as subservient? Is it okay Google and others to capture data without our knowledge? These questions and new research led by Allison Koenecke inspired the creation of Voicing Erasure: a poetic piece recited by champions of women’s empowerment and leading scholars on race, gender, and technology.

Audience: All ages
