Key Thinkers in the Field: Shannon Mattern – Media Architectures & Archaeologies

Monday, November 9, 2015, at 6:00 pm to 7:50 pm

University Center, 63 Fifth Ave, lower level, room UL104

Abstract: Just how new are “new” and “emergent” media? Just how novel are our locative technologies, quantified selves, and sentient cities? This talk takes up these questions by both introducing students to “media archaeology” and its presence in various courses and initiatives throughout the university; and by tracing the archaeological through my own work.
