"The Aesthetics of Electronic Disturbance Theater as Digital Zapatismo: From Radical Transparency to Radical Translucency."

Ricardo Dominguez, Prof. of Visual Arts at U.C. San Diego
http://visarts.ucsd.edu/faculty/ricardo-dominguez

Founded by Dominguez in 1997, the Electronic Disturbance Theater (EDT) company imagines how performance art can take the form of what they call "Electronic Civil Disobedience." During the first phase of nonviolent protest during the 1990s, called EDT 1.0, the collective focused on how cyberactivism could counter the opaque anonymity that was running rampant online. By enacting a "radical transparency" that connected real material bodies to online data bodies, EDT's performance art echoed the Gandhian method that linked the soul and body as key to civil disobedience. After 9/11, EDT 2.0 shifted away from "transparency," which they viewed now a neoliberal protocol of containment and control, towards "translucency" as their wild-aesthetic-in-the-wild. In pursuing activism that focuses on the question of "translucency," EDT created the Transborder Immigrant Tool in 2007, which is a cell phone application that helps immigrants locate sources of water while crossing the US-Mexico border.

"From the Rio Grande to the Susquehanna: Latino Emergence and the Enrichment of American Politics."

Tony Affigne, Professor of Political Science at Providence College
http://www.providence.edu/political-science/faculty/Pages/affigne.aspx

Between 2000 and 2010, the U.S. Hispanic population grew by 43 percent, with growth in every one of the 50 states. Latino-owned businesses as well as a growing workforce of Latino service, industrial, and professional workers, are transforming and revitalizing local economies across the country. In states as diverse as Florida, Colorado, New York, and Georgia, Hispanic voters now comprise more than 10% of the electorate, enough to determine state and federal elections. At the same time a sharp backlash, represented most clearly by the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, defines the Latino emergence as a threat to national unity, political culture, and economic prosperity. In this lecture, award-winning political scientist Tony Affigne explores the meaning and implications of these contradictory trends in American politics and society.
