Writing (through) Media Archaeology (roundtable sponsored by the Media Archaeology Lab)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This roundtable will feature short talks from digital writers and critics from the US and Canada who wish to discuss writing in relation to the field of media archaeology via pieces of hardware and/or software housed in the Media Archaeology Lab (MAL) located at CU Boulder. Ideally, the MAL will bring in to the panel, for audience members to interact with, the piece of hardware/software that each panelist will discuss. 

The MAL is headed by Lori Emerson and its focus is on defining moments in the history of computing and digital literature/art. The MAL is a research space, classroom, game lab, hangout, living archive, and repository, that speaks to the concept of undead media, where “the past must be lived so that the present can be seen." Drawing on Jussi Parikka's notion of media archaeology as an active archive, the lab has become an opportunity to counter the memory-loss of computer cultures, much of it pre internet and pre new media; "the insistence of the relevance of the old and obsolete is the necessary double of the celebration of the new we have been living."
