In this action-oriented teach-out in solidarity with the ongoing UCU strike, we’ll be talking about the connections between Oxford and surveillance software sold to foreign regimes to monitor, control, and oppress people within their jurisdictions. Topics will include: political economy of software sales, the uneven geography of global surveillance software production, and impact on migrant populations.
