The Digital Kaleidoscope: How Race Appears Online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Race is inherent within the design, culture, and experience of the Internet. Some racialized components garner public attention, like Twitter and YouTube, while other digital aspects regarding race get overlooked, including Google searches, online ads, Facebook groups, and mobile applications. When and how do YOU notice race online? This session puts the "interactive" into the SXSW Interactive Festival: consider this hour a friendly, focused gathering for SXSW participants to understand the significance of race in digital interactions. Our conversation features scholarly research and the “fishbowl” format to provide opportunity for YOU to give voice to your experiences about race online. Attendees of this session will experience a dynamic discussion format to take home to use. By the end of the session, attendees will have learned about perspectives on race different from their own, including those rooted in academic research and those stemming from other participants' experiences.
