Please join us for one of the final events of our exciting digital year.
Dr. Rita Raley, Associate Professor at UCSB will present on the possibilities for social exchange in textual media environments, focusing on hand-held devices.
Thursday, May 31
Dr. Raley’s talk will move “beyond the desktop,” with a particular focus on mobile media and projected display. In this work, she emphasizes the potentiality of these environments with respect to social exchange, publics, and being in common.
She also reflects on the disciplinary implications of textual environments that are about transient display and process rather than the artifact. Dr. Raley is Associate Professor of English, with courtesy appointments in Film and Media Studies, Comparative Literature, and Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of digital media and humanist inquiry, with a particular emphasis on cultural critique, artistic practices, and language (codework, machine translation, electronic literature, and electronic English).
