First Meeting TUESDAY 9/2: 5-6PM

Please join the New Media Working Group for its first meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 2, from 5-6PM in the Rhetoric and Film Library (7337 Dwinelle Hall). We have an exciting semester planned on a broad field of topics, ranging from "Virtual Worlds and Second Lives" to "Textuality, Storage, and Computer Forensics." In October, new TDPS/BCNM assistant professor Abigail De Kosnik will meet with us to share some of her work on new media, race, and minority discourse, and Henry Lowood, Curator for History of Science & Technology Collections and Film & Media Collections at Stanford, has agreed to host us for a visit to the new gaming collection at Stanford with an opportunity to discuss his work on Preserving Virtual Worlds.

We welcome all those interested to join us for a discussion of the proposed schedule, and participants will be encouraged to contribute their own ideas about readings, speakers, and activities, with the potential to lead sessions on subjects close to their research interests.

Hope to see you there!
