About this Unit
This unit assesses the various social, political, scientific and electronic technologies that serve some cultures whilst discriminating against others. The lectures are broad in scope but will at times focus specifically on Indigenous Australia and the kinds of issues around race and racism that emerge within technological practices of management, filtering and representation. Globalisation, localization, ethnicity and identity will be explored along with many different kinds of technology, including those that generate the mass media, to analyse the ways in which technologies play a part in race and racism.
