Brown Bag Discussion w/Edward Shanken
February 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join us for a special brown bag discussion with Edward Shanken (UC Santa Cruz) in the Digital Humanities Lab (Second Floor, East Wing of the Golda Meir Library) on Friday at noon.
Shanken will lead an open discussion on imagining what the term “technoshamanism” might mean in the context of digital humanities and the arts. (A few short readings will be circulated before the brown bag to help establish a shared intellectual framework.)
Edward Shanken is an Associate Professor of Digital Art and New Media at the University of California Santa Cruz. He writes and teaches about the entwinement of art, science, and technology with a focus on interdisciplinary practices involving new media. His recent scholarship addresses art-science collaboration, surveillance culture, sound art and ecology, systems theory, and bridging the gap between new media and contemporary art. He is the author of Art and Electronic Media (Phaidon, 2009) and the editor of Systems (Whitechapel, 2015).
Be sure to join us later on Friday for Shanken’s talk, “Deus ex Poiesis: A Manifesto for the End of the World and the Future of Art and Technology” at 3:30 in Curtin Hall 175.
