- Zack Lischer-Katz, “Studying the Materiality of Media Archives in the Age of Digitization: Forensics, Infrastructures, and Ecologies,” First Monday 22:1/2 (January 2017) [read only the first two sections; stop at “New Directions for Conceptualizing…”]. We’ll take a few minutes at the start of class to discuss Lischer-Katz’s article, which provides a helpful infrastructural framing for archives; it’s a nice summary of many of the themes and scales of analysis we’ll have discussed thus far in the semester.
PROJECT PRESENTATIONS: In class, each student will have three minutes to share his/her proposed final project. This is your opportunity to draw on your classmates’ collective wisdom in refining your plans, so you can make the best use of your time over the remaining six weeks of the semester. You’ll want to help everyone understand your plans as concretely as possible, so please consider bringing images, models, etc., to share.
