Painless Introductions series icon

Note: this talk will be part of the UCLDH Painless Introduction series starting in the new academic year, October 2011

As part of the UCLDH series of Painless Introductions, Sarah Kember will trace the transition from debates on new media – including contested definitions and the identification of characteristics such as digital, virtual etc – to debates on mediation.

This talk will raise questions of representation and performativity, and invite us to consider what we are doing when we create digital objects, images and archives. The talk will draw on a range of case studies at the intersection of science, technology and media. 

Sarah Kember is Reader in New Technologies of Communications at Goldsmiths College.
