Dismantling the New Jim Code: Towards a Black Centered Technological Design Ethos in Engineering Education
Join Dr. Woodrow Winchester, III, for the first event in the Clark School's Engineering Education Speakers series on Friday, February 26, 2021 from 1 - 2 pm EST. Registration is free.
Black-Centered Design represents a framework by which the diverse and nuanced complexities of Black identity can act as an ethos for creating more inclusive, equitable, and accountable technological solutions. Dr. Winchester's talk introduces Black-Centered Design and offers pedagogical and epistemological strategies such as Afrofuturism that afford an explicit foregrounding of Black lives and bodies in technological design. The conversation will conclude with thoughts on barriers in implementation, and possible countermeasures in enacting the needed philosophical and methodological changes.
