Digital Diaspora Symposium

Prof. Patrick Jagoda (University of Chicago) will deliver the keynote “Networked Borders: Media Experiments in a Closed World” at 5 pm in the Humanities Center (Conference Room D). Through his analysis of a range of contemporary media experiments, such as Gonzalo Alvarez's video game "Borders" (2017) and Alex Revira’s film “Sleep Dealer” (2009), Jagoda’s talk explores the tensions between networks and borders in light of the recent rise of nationalism in the United States and beyond. 

You are also invited to participate in work-in-progress workshops led by Patrick Jagoda (Chicago), Crystal Eddins (UNC Charlotte), Jen Malkowski (Smith College), Amit Ray (RIT), and Lauren Berliner (UWB). They will be joined by faculty members and graduate students from Rochester and our partners from the Central New York Humanities Corridor. Each of them will present works around issues of digital culture, immigration, diaspora, and circulation. All workshops will take place at the Humanities Center. Lunch will be provided on both Friday and Saturday. 

Please RSVP here before March 26 to ensure that we can accommodate your dietary and accessibility needs.
