Life in Pixels series with Seb Franklin & Jon Beller

Monday, March 14, 2022 4:00 pm EST

Life in Pixels hosts an ongoing series of transdisciplinary conversations thinking about how we can make sense of, and live with, our computational social condition today. Considering sociocultural, aesthetic, politicoeconomic, environmental, racial, and historical registers of technology together, the series will bring together people who think and do technology beyond disciplinary boundaries. The events are all designed as an ongoing series of conversations between scholars and practitioners in Media Studies, Science and Technology Studies, History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, Critical Digital Studies, and Literary Cultural Studies. Join us on Monday, March 14, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET.
