Declarations of Resistance

21 – Monetization over Justice w/ ELLEN KAUFMAN

WYSW Hosts May 13, 2020


This week we begin with a fairly heavy check-in where Nneka and Shelleena share their collective mental noise surrounding anti-Black racism, white supremacy, and the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. They both also share their successes for the week and gratitude for the loved ones in their lives. Then, we are so excited to welcome a very special guest to the @WYSWpodcast, ELLEN KAUFMAN (@elmkauf). Ellen is a doctoral student in Informatics at Indiana University and a graduate research assistant at the Kinsey Institute. Her research focuses on the implications of technologically-mediated intimacy for the future of erotic labor, social robotics, and interpersonal relationships. On a more personal note, Ellen is also Nneka’s (soon to be) daughter-in-law, and we could not be happier to have her as a part of the extended @WomenatthecentrE family! Ellen shares some of her research on sex-tech with us, and chats with us about what accountability, ethics, and digital literacy mean within this field of work.

This week we’re drinking Sandbanks Riesling VQA, Inniskillin Late Autumn Riesling VQA, Oyster Bay Chardonnay, & El Abuelo Organic Sauvignon-Verdejo. We gave these wines a buzz rating of 5/5, 4.5/5, 5/5, and 5/5 respectively.
