Cyborgs and the Post-Human (10/7)

The topic for this week is Cyborgs and the Post-Human.  We will discuss the increasing interrelationship between human beings and their digital objects.  What challenges does the cyborg pose to humanism?  What happens to the body as we increasingly become ‘post-human’?  How does the cyborg destabilize existing media?


Fall 2014 Week 1: What is New Media?

Our first discussion will ask a basic question--what is new media?  Attached documents will look at this question from two perspectives.  First, we will briefly look at a formative era in the history of computing, beginning around the second World War.  Then, we will look at a contemporary debate in the academy over the meaning, import, utility and value of "digital humanities."
