This Thursday we invite you to hear from Dr. Lilly Irani on “Entrepreneurial Citizenship: Promising Knowledge and the Subsumption of Hope.” Dr. Irani works between Science and Technology Studies and Computer Science to research how technical practices are shaped by hierarchies of race and gender. She has also developed information systems that allow people to subvert existing labor platforms. Dr. Irani is Assistant Professor in Communication, Science Studies, and Critical Gender Studies at UC San Diego and sits on the AI Now Academic Council. The presentation will be at 3pm in the GSEIS Building, Room 111.
