Description

The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum lecture series presents Against Complicity: Surveillance, Education, and Digital Redlining a talk by Chris Gilliard, professor, Macomb Community College. 

How can we understand equal access to technology and information in the digital age? Dr. Chris Gilliard’s lecture looks at how technology policies, practices, and investment decisions, especially in educational settings, create differential access and outcomes in colleges and universities. These processes, collectively understood as “digital redlining,” need to be understood and countered in order to create a more equitable educational structure.
