Scientific Oppression, Biological Reductionism, and the Future of Neurotechnology

Technologies that record and stimulate the brain are set to transform medical treatment, interpersonal life, and even what it means to be human. But these neurotechnologies may, if we’re not careful, continue legacies of harm against people of color, women, LGBTQIA-identifying persons, and disabled people. How can we keep neurotechnology from becoming oppressive? What would 'anti-oppressive' brain technology look like?

Join us for a stimulating 90-minute panel discussion featuring three scholars — Dr. Francis X. Shen, Dr. Olivia Matshabane, and Jasmine Kwasa — sharing their unique perspectives on the future of neurotechnology and social justice.

This online event organized by the INS Diversity & Inclusion Task Force is free and open to all. You must register in advance to participate.
