Dystopian Resilient Futures: A Technologically Intertwined Humanitarian Story

Kanal 2
Reem Talhouk
In this talk I will be unpacking notions of Resilience and how humanitarian technologies contribute to dystopian futures for refugees.
Based on stories with and from refugees, we will embark on a journey where we question what narratives humanitarian technologies enforce and how can we envision technologies otherwise in shaping future(s) in which we collectively flourish.

These data discoveries are bridging the gap between the known and the unknown. Over time, this will help us understand the mechanisms of disease, giving humanity the opportunity to create a world free of disease for us all.
