MITH Digital Dialogue: Beth Coleman, "Everything is Animated: Pervasive Media and the Networked Subject"

NOTE LOCATION CHANGE: Women's Studies Multimedia Studio, 0135 Taliaferro Hall In a world of pervasive media and ubiquitous computing, this talk asks what happens as everything (objects, subjects, actions) moves toward animation across a network. How does media and mediation affect our sense of agency? I use the example of A Scanner Darkly (dir. Linklater 2006) to discuss the effects of pervasive media and how it affects the parameters of self-reflection and agency. Beth Coleman is a Harvard University Faculty Fellow at Berkman Center for Internet and Society and a visiting professor at the Institute of Network Cultures, Hogeschool van Amsterdam. From 2005-2011, Coleman has been an assistant professor of comparative media studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her book Hello Avatar: Rise of the Networked Generation is published by the MIT Press. She received her Ph.D in comparative literature from New York University. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 14, 2011
