April 27- 28, 2012
Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley
The two day symposium will bring together interdisciplinary scholars, artists, and media industry representatives to reflect on the nature of knowledge in the digital age. How do the tools of new media transform the questions we ask, how do they enable new questions, and how do they foreclose other questions?
Panels will address topics such as Intelligence Amplification and Creativity, Data Diffraction in Networked Systems, the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences, Linguistics and Large Corpora, and Reading in the Digital Age. The presentations will highlight the conceptual issues at stake while emphasizing examples of innovative work in multiple disciplines. Keynote Speaker Bernard Stiegler (Institut de recherche et d’innovation, Centre Pompidou, Paris) will present on Friday.
This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited, we suggest registering as soon as possible. For information and to register, visit bcnm.berkeley.edu/digital-inquiry

Presented by the Berkeley Center for New Media with support from the French American Cultural Society, the Cultural Service of the Consulate General of France in San Francisco, the Innovation Center Denmark, and CITRIS.
