Hilldale Lecture in Arts & Humanities: Yves Citton

The Humanities as Arts of Attention in the Age of Computational Mediarchy

Date
Thursday, April 19, 2018
Time
4 p.m.
Location
Description
The Humanities call us to pay attention to what conditions our attention. By doing so, they help us take distance towards the lures of “communication”, and reframe issues of “information.” Media perform agential cuts which condition what matters to us collectively and individually. Consequently they structure our political constitutions as “mediarchy,” rather than as “democracy.”
