Dr. David Squires – Universities of the Air, Libraries Without Walls (3/24 3-4pm in the CDSC)
Join us for a public talk with Dr. David Squires titled “Universities of the Air, Libraries Without Walls” in the CDSC Spring Series Thursday, March 24th from 3:00pm — 4:00pm in the CDSC (Holland Libraries, 4th Floor).
This talk will chart an alternative history of digital humanities projects. Rather than beginning with digital computing and screen-based media, it will consider radio programming as a seminal form of electronic transmission. By reorienting the history of digital humanities we can begin to see how early twentieth-century broadcasting pioneered an unsustainable ideology of dematerialization now pervasive in the world of cloud computing.
No registration is required for this event.
