IFTF Foresight Talks: Decolonizing Techno-Orientalism: Why Foresight Needs a Feedback Loop
In this conversation with cultural critic and researcher Dawn Chan, whose work has deeply explored the intersections of race, technology, art and the future, IFTF Digital Intelligence Lab director Jeff Yang will discuss the ways in which the biases of the past and present write themselves on Western views of the future. The conversation will explore the concept of "techno-orientalism" in media, entertainment, literature and academia and consider how foresight needs a feedback loop to challenge and critique assumptions about race, class, gender and faith that may skew projections and lead practitioners to narratives centered on hegemonic or exoticized identities.
