What is the sound of racialization? How might we listen to misrecognition? What does machine error tell us about the precision of racism? And how can the tools of a racist system be used to transcribe new forms of resistance? Part lecture and part performance, this event brings together critical work on race and algorithmic culture with new techniques for dissecting and analyzing automatic speech recognition, applied to personal and public archives drawn from Thao’s life and research.
This Fall 2023 event is a part of "Computation and the Humanities," a series of events at the GCLR investigating the impact of computation on literary and visual research. Guests include researchers, artists, and practitioners working within and beyond the digital humanities.
