BORDERLANDS
TECHNOLOGIES

Data, Practices, and Stories

Activists, migrants, and researchers in Central America, Mexico,
and the United States are cultivating alternative technological
worlds in the Mexican Borderlands, using Genetics, Chemistry,
GPS, Internet Communication Technologies (ICT), and biometrics.
Hear from those researching, creating, hacking, and reworking
humanitarian technologies in the US, Mexico, and Guatemala.
Join us for a series of conversations about emergent spaces
of resistance and innovation that seek to enable just technological
futures in the Mexican Borderlands.
