Scholarly work usually characterizes engineers as politically and socially conservative individuals; instruments of the expansion of capitalism and neoliberalism. It also portrays them as supporters of both the State and the big corporations that employ them. This talk reports on an ethnographic study that documented the work of a group of information technology (IT) engineers in Colombia who decided to create a space of exception to neoliberalism in the form of a Non-Governmental Engineering Organization (NGEO). These engineers found that running their own NGEO provided them with some degrees of freedom to pursue social justice goals in their IT work in ways not usually found in the corporate or neoliberal governmental worlds. However, these opportunities do not come without outstanding challenges, such as funding dependencies from a neoliberal government, which create contradictions that hinder the pursue of social justice goals in the construction of information technology.

Richard Arias-Hernandez is a lecturer at the University of British Columbia’s iSchool. He obtained a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2008. His research has centred around the study of the co-construction of information technology and society, especially those constructions that aim to advance social justice in capitalist societies.

Videomatica collection branding

Film fans, rejoice – Videomatica’s legendary film collection is now accessible for borrowing from UBC and SFU libraries.

Catalogued and available for borrowing, the unparalleled collection spans more than 35,000 titles, including feature films from more than 75 countries, documentaries, cult and art films, Canadian works and selections from the Vancouver International Film Festival.

UBC and SFU acquired the $1.7-million collection after Videomatica’s 2011 closure, thanks to a donation and purchase agreement brokered by Vancouver philanthropist Yosef Wosk. UBC received about 28,000 movie DVDs, 4,000 VHS titles and 900 Blu-rays and SFU received more than 2,500 documentaries.

“From the moment we received the Videomatica collection, we knew how fortunate we were to share it with communities at UBC and beyond,” says Ingrid Parent, UBC’s University Librarian. “The accessibility, preservation and expertise that UBC Library provides will ensure that the collection can be viewed, enjoyed and utilized for generations to come.”

Please visit the announcement and the Videomatica site for details on the collection, access and more.
