The Austin Immigrant Rights Coalition sponsors this talk by Dr. Simone Brown, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas.  Dr. Brown’s book project, Skin™: Surveillance, Technology and Race, questions how the historical remains of early surveillance technologies form part of the enabling conditions of certain new technologies, including biometrics.
