Matthew Goodwin

University Press of Mississippi

Matthew Goodwin, in “Virtual Reality at the Border of Migration, Race and Labor,” displays how Latin American writers and artists have shown that virtual reality reproduces colonialism’s dystopian construction of race and exploitation of labor, that it does not generate a utopia but just another world to be colonized. Goodwin examines works by Guillermo Lavín, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, and Alex Rivera that use representations of virtual reality to illuminate various forms of exploitative labor.
