Say My Name, Say My Name

        Queer visions of coexisting with artificial intelligences

In the mid-1980s, Donna Haraway predicted that hybridized beings called cyborgs would overcome sexism and racism. Today, we see that Siri and Alexa, as artificial everyday assistants, are still being ordered to do “care work”, while their male-voiced counterparts are being used in medicine and finance. Time for a reboot: Artificial intelligences,
gender fluid robots, and (humanoid) dancers of Color come together, to create their own scenarios for coexisting across species.
