Hi  Paprika‽ community,

Welcome to the second edition of Paprika?, the oft-weekly bulletin from a team of Paprika! editors and staff writers. In case you missed it, the Call for Issue Editors for Fall 2020 is live! We are also seeking archival editors, production editors, & staff writers—to quickly summarize, the archival editor will curate and restore materials from Paprika's archive for revisitation, the production editor will design and craft new media projects (such as the podcast we just launched last week), and staff writers join a sort of "core team" of bulletin writers to whom we could pitch commissions—event reviews, emerging reportage, etc.

These are all ways to get more involved with the day-to-day of Paprika—join us! Now that the infrastructure for content is in place, we'd really like to make this platform a communal effort, like its printed slightly older sibling. And as always, the door is open on our rolling call for content.
Paprika? is a space for conversation. You are free not to impress your future boss and colleagues. Each week we will offer a conversation prompt in the form of a question. This week we ask:

 On the Ground

Paprika? : In the Pit #2 with Liwei Wang, Claudia Ansorena, Angela Lufkin, & Adam Thibodeaux
This week, Paprika?'s Coordinating Editor team spoke with several students and recent alumni (congrats Adam and Liwei!) about their perspectives on Paprika—both the exclamation and the question. Our interlocutors discussed the unexpected challenges and rewards of working on Paprika!? and what it might take to build community at Yale, especially in light of COVID-19. Thank you Claudia Ansorena (M.Arch II, 2022), Angela Lufkin (M.Arch I, 2021), Adam Thibodeaux (M.Arch II, 2020), & Liwei Wang (M.Arch I & MBA, 2020) for joining us.
We have compiled a small collection of resources and documents regarding the ICE announcement on July 6, 2020. The revoking of the temporary exemption on international students' F-1 and M-1 Visas is an appalling decision. This change only further reinscribes discrimination against our international community whose health and safety has already been rendered precarious during this COVID-19 pandemic. We urge you to click through the link and review the calls to action and, especially, speak to your local representative to encourage them to reverse the order. A special thank you to Limy Fabiana Rocha (M.Arch I 2020) for sharing these items with us.

Event Reflection: Policing without the Police
Audrey Tseng Fischer, M.Arch I 2022

On July 8, Nisha Bolsey, an editor at Haymarket Books, hosted Policing Without the Police: Race, Technology and the New Jim Codean online teach-in with Ruha Benjamin and Dorothy Roberts. They discussed the myriad ways in which white supremacy is reinscribed and perpetuated by advancements in technology and medicine that are ostensibly meant to improve and 'modernize' our society. In this piece, Audrey Tseng Fischer reflects on the event and the crucial lessons that Benjamin, Roberts, and other aligned thinkers have to share.
