N. Katherine Hayles: Performing Technogenesis:
The Affective Power of Digital Media
Wednesday, April 17

In this talk, N. Katherine Hayles, professor of literature and director of graduate studies at Duke University, will explore how digital media is changing us, and on what levels and in what ways. She will examine the co-evolution of technical objects and contemporary humans, arguing that our intense engagements with digital media affect us not only through conscious channels but also through unconscious and nonconscious modes, as well. The trajectory of these changes will be discussed, with examples drawn from gaming and electronic literature.

The talk begins at 6 p.m. in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) Theater. Admission is free. For more information, go to empac.rpi.edu/events/2013/spring/n-katherine-hayles
