Join the Georgia Tech Library Thursday, Feb. 8 from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Scholars Event Network Theater, located on Price Gilbert's first floor, for AI, Art and Afrofuturism with Dr. Nettrice R. Gaskins.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Gaskins back to her alma mater, Georgia Tech,” said Assessment Librarian and Science Fiction Subject Matter Expert Matt Frizzell. “Her fascinating and beautiful art – and the ideas behind it – will make for a fantastic talk.”

Gaskins, who earned her doctoral degree from Georgia Tech in Digital Media, is an African American digital artist, scholar, and cultural critic. She explores Science, Technology, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) learning, "techno-vernacular creativity" and Afrofuturism, among other cultural movements.

Her algorithmic, AI-generated and assisted art has been on view at the Smithsonian, in publications, murals, films, and galleries around the country. Her first full-length book, Techno-Vernacular Creativity and Innovation is available through The MIT Press. She currently works at Lesley University.
