2/12 Meeting on Archive Fever

What: New Media Working Group
When: 1-2PM, Thursday 2/12
Where: BCNM Commons next to the Free Speech Cafe
Discussion Leader: Kris Trujillo



Please join the New Media Working Group to discuss Jacques Derrida's Archive Fever, a lecture delivered on June 5, 1994, at the Freud Museum in London. We will look closely at the unnamed introduction, "Exergue," and "Preamble" (pages 1-31), paying special attention to Derrida's meditations on the psychical archive's relation to memory and the death drive, on the future of psychoanalytic inscription and historiography in light of electronic media, and on the filiation of digital archives.

Stick around after the meeting for another Berkeley Center for New Media Tea... good food and conversation!
