Federica Frabetti: Rethinking Software Between Code Studies and Digital Humanities

In this talk Frederica explores the way in which an understanding of digital technologies requires a close critical engagement with software, on which such technologies are based. In turn, the question of what software is and of the kind of knowledge that can be produced about it outside of the boundaries of computer sciences cannot be addressed without radically reconsidering what we mean by knowledge in relation to technology in a broader sense. Today the cultural study of software is the object of fields as varied as Software Studies, Code Studies, Critical Code Studies, the Digital Humanities and Digital Media Studies. She argues that these fields could benefit from a radical rethinking of the conceptual framework of instrumentality and the way in which technology has been understood primarily by the Western philosophical tradition.

Federica Frabetti: Rethinking Software Between Code Studies and Digital Humanities

Marc Garret: Disrupting The Gaze: Part 1 - Art intervention and the Tate Gallery

We live in a world riddled with contradictions and confusing signals. Our histories are assessed, judged and introduced as fact yet there are so many bits missing. We accept what is given through sound bite forms of mediation and end up using misinformation as our cultural foundations, and then we build on these acquired assumptions as our imagined guidelines. This critique studies how contemporary artists are challenging these defaults through their connected enactments and critical inquiries of the existing conditions.

Sarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska:Is there life after new media?

Join us for a discussion withSarah Kember and Joanna Zylinska to celebrate the launch of their book,Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process(MIT Press, 2012).ember and Zylinska will consider the viability of new media studies as a discrete field of enquiry, at a time when media newness seems to have lost some of its shine. They will suggest we should move beyond our fascination with objects -- computers, smart phones, iPods, Kindles -- to an examination of the interlocking technical, social, and biological processes of mediation.

Nicholas Mirzoeff: Something to See Here: For a Militant Visual Culture Practice

In this presentation, Mirzoeff describes how his work has unfolded from the analysis of critical visuality studies into a militant research practice over the past two years. He introduces his project about the Algerian Revolution and its place as a key site on the border between the global North and South and talks about how the interface of digital humanities and critical visuality came to shape hisdurational writing project called Occupy 2012 in which he writes every day in regards to the Occupy movement.

Pat Brereton: Smart Cinema

Smart Cinema (2012) focuses on the convergence between old and new media, and demonstrates how contemporary film industries create opportunities for audiences to be more active. Using case studies of British and other smart films, Brereton explores how such features can represent a bridge between the text and the creative makers of a film, who in turn speak directly to their niche audiences, often outside of the confines of the filmic text.

Tarik Sabry:The Arab Revolutions and Delayed Theory: or, The Arab Revolutions: The Moment of Arab Cultural Studies?

The proposed intervention - the Arab Revolutions and Delayed Theory is borne out of intellectual frustration and dissatisfaction with facile and largely descriptive chronometric analyses of the Arab Spring, that have failed to articulate the revolutions beyond their chaotic, unfolding eventfulness.

Dave Boothroyd: The Ethical Subject of Affective Culture

The desire to develop a theoretical framework for securing the extension of the ethical to the political has led to an increased and diverse critical interest in the Emmanuel Levinas ethics of alterity.Appraisals of his ethical philosophy and assessment of its value in relation to the passage from the ethical to the political, however, often take the form of insufficiently critical appropriations presenting, as Howard Caygill has put it, angelicised versions of the Levinasian thought of absolute alterity and infinite responsibility. Alternatively, Levinas is often read as simply reiteratively insisting on the primacy of the ethical whilst casting the political as its destruction.
