Symposium "Social Justice and Technological Futures”

  • University of Tübingen, Germany  

Registration as participant via email to Ms. Laura Schelenz (

Social justice theories are crucial instruments to meet the challenges of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence. The Tübingen Symposium questions canonical values in technology creation while also exploring diverse and potentially competing social justice concepts. The works of Black feminists and critical race theorists as well as decolonial and Global South scholars and activists render visible the interlockings of societal, economic, cultural, and political injustice in the design, production, and distribution of technology. In thinking about the future and its daunting challenges, including the transformation of work, climate change, migration, and overall precarity, what should be the role of technology? What do technological futures look like from a social justice perspective?
