From Potential to Promise: Developing Scholars, one Eureka moment at a time

Duke Computer Science Colloquium
Speaker Name

At Rutgers University-Camden, the student body is quite diverse, with many first generation college students and students from underrepresented minority groups. Our students face financial challenges - a significantly large fraction of Rutgers-Camden students work at least part-time while pursuing coursework. Since the inception of the computer science department in the nineties until 2009 almost no student from the computer science department at Rutgers-Camden had gone to pursue graduate studies in computer science or related fields.

Self-Care is an Act of Resistance

Now more than ever, we know the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Thankfully, individuals like you have stepped up to help make a difference. While your efforts are valued and are critical to achieving a better world, will the world be better if you aren’t?

This session will explore the difficulties of being a passionate social justice advocate while maintaining well-being. You will gain insight regarding how and why we should avoid martyrdom and live a lifestyle of embodied self-care.

Mitigating Technology Abuse in Intimate Partner Violence and Encrypted Messaging

Triangle Computer Science Distinguished Lecturer Series
Speaker Name
Thomas Ristenpart
Location
LSRC D106
Date and Time
-

Computer security is traditionally about the protection of technology, whereas trust and safety efforts focus on preventing technology abuse from harming people. In this talk, I'll explore the interplay between security and tech abuse, and make the case that trust and safety represents an important frontier for computer security researchers. To do so, I'll draw on examples from two lines of my recent work.

Overcoming Complacency and Ceding Space

“When we identify where our privilege intersects with somebody else's oppression, we'll find our opportunities to make real change.”― Ijeoma Oluo

This panel of K-16 educators and administrators will discuss how to leverage one's privilege (and power) to do the important work of transforming computing courses, departments, and cultures. Topics will include not only how to counteract complacency to be better advocates and co-conspirators, but also challenges faced and the importance of ceding space to enact meaningful and sustainable change.
