Social Justice and Tech Reading Group: Rafalow's Digital Divisions

Join the Sara Fine Institute and the Research, Ethics and Society Initiative (RESI) at the University of Pittsburgh for the inaugural meeting of the Social Justice and Tech Reading Group.

Each semester, we will engage with a recently published text that explores technology and implications on society, health and well-being. This semester, we will read Matthew Rafalow's Digital Divisions: How Schools Create Inequality in the Digital Age (University of Chicago, 2020). Join us to discuss Rafalow's exploration of racial and socio-economic dimensions of access to digital technologies in schools.

Please join other Pitt students, staff, and faculty for a facilitated discussion of the introduction and Chapters 1-2 of Rafalow's text. Register for the October 27 meeting.

This virtual gathering will be followed with a November 13 discussion of the remainder of the text and a November 17 lecture by Rafalow. Learn more about the SFI-RESI Social Justice and Tech reading group.

Rafalow's text is available for free as an eBook through the University Library System and students can enter a drawing for a free print copy of the book by registering.

Tuesday, October 27 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
