Bringing together leading scholars from history and philosophy of technology, media studies, and cultural studies of technology, the re:compute symposium is a one-day event at the University of Notre Dame that seeks to investigate the different political positions on computational media technologies across disciplines. Our goal is to foster discussion along the thread of re:computation, imagining computationalities (conceptual, metaphorical, technical) beyond the economic and historical confines presented to us by Silicon Valley.
If re-computation is not only possible but also necessary, then what and how can we recompute our computational world? Where goes the cultural study of computation today?
Free registration required for in-person participation and/or virtual attendance.
