SIRENS GO SILENT: A Commemorative Colloquium for Friedrich Kittler, NYU 2013
Deutsches Haus at NYU - March 14-16 2013
I had the great honor of being invited to present at this prestigious commemoration of one of my mentors amongst some truly stellar thinkers. My piece, Material Engagement & Pedagogy: A Report from Kittler's Last Seminar, was framed by Avital Ronell and I took the liberty to pull from the notes that Kittler handed me at the end of his last seminar as well as the notes I took at the time, creating a patchwork of thoughts in and amongst notes through the time spent in his seminar and since his passing. The physical printed piece will be included in a collection of pieces in and around Kittler, forthcoming through Fordham Press.
(I also recommend watching the other presentations as it was a beautiful and thought-provoking commemorative colloquium.)
