[GCWS Event] Technology as Political Resistance

A flyer with event text.

The GCWS is hosting several panels this summer that have been organized by an interdisciplinary team of graduate student organizers from across our member institutions. This was originally intended to be the Consortium’s SP20 graduate student symposium but has been reinvented into separate panels due to campus response to COVID in March 2020. These panels are free and open to everyone.
