Technoculture

Faculty Coordinators: Matthew Kenyon (Art), Andrew Lison (Media Study), and Stephanie Rothenberg (Art)

The Technoculture Research Workshop considers how the Enlightenment relationship between the scientific method and the natural world is problematized by contemporary issues in technology, media, academia, art, and the environment. The replication crisis in the social sciences, increasingly urgent ecological emergencies, engineering difficulties in perpetuating Moore’s Law, and the rise of quantum computing and neural nets all suggest that global technoculture is approaching a critical juncture. Bringing artists and digital media theorists together with visiting scholars exploring this question from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, it examines the broad humanistic implications of current efforts to bridge the gaps between ourselves and that which remains beyond the grasp of our reason.
