You're uninvited from Queering Tech, sorry!
A quick update to let you know that the Queering Tech panel discussion has been cancelled
A quick update to let you know that the Queering Tech panel discussion (featured in the previous issue) has been cancelled.
It’s been brought to my attention that the event partner, RMIT University, maintains a research partnership with Elbit Systems — an Israeli weapons manufacturer. You can read more about this partnership on Matt Chun’s Substack:
This was a really hard decision to make, but after discussion with Matt and talking with the panellists, we think this is the best way forward — in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
We hope to host the event, in this form or another, sometime in the near future, and removed from the university context.
Thanks for understanding,
