Just a reminder to please come out tonight to hear Wendy Chun’s talk! If you would forward the announcement to students and faculty in your programs, we would appreciate it.
GC Digital Initiatives is excited to welcome Professor Wendy Chun from Brown University to The Graduate Center for a talk, titled “TBD.”
The talk will be held in the Skylight Room of The Graduate Center CUNY on Wednesday, November 18th. 6:30-8:30pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Please read below for more information on “TBD,” and learn more at cuny.is/tbdwendychun
Increasingly, it would seem, the future is already known, determined by algorithms that analyze, predict and pre-empt actions. Privacy is dead, and so is consent, because regardless of our own actions, we are betrayed by people “like us.” To what extent, though, does this situation offer new possibilities for action and modes of identification? This talk explores what it means “to be determined,” by framing users as characters in a universe of dramas putatively called Big Data.
Wendy Hui Kyong Chun is Professor of Modern Culture and Media, Professor of History of Art and Architecture, and Chair of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University. This talk is sponsored by GC Digital Initiatives.

Hi Jack — we’ve requested livestreaming and it will likely be
live-tweeted, as well.

David has passed on these additional details (poster attached):
A Lecture by Professor Peter de Bolla
University of Cambridge
This lecture asks if the move into the digital changes anything with respect to knowledge. Are the affordances of computational environments for scholarship merely enhancements to what we do in the old analogue ways? Faster, for sure, more efficient and on a larger scale. But is that all? Many scholars working in the humanities would take such a view. This lecture asks us to consider a rather different scenario in which both what we call ‘the humanities’ and ‘knowledge’ come under pressure. It argues that we have yet to figure out what that pressure might do with respect to what and how we know but one possibility is that the migration of analogue materials into digital has the capacity to create an alternative epistemology: digital knowledge.

Thanks, Monica, for creating the group! As group admin, you should be able to invite other members using the send invites button, and we could invite all NYCDH members that way. I can do this tonight if you don’t have a chance first.
Also set this up as the featured group on the homepage

Ugh. I’ve been dealing with spam registrations almost daily, and every time
I see one I mark the account as spam and then delete, but it looks like
groups created by spammers have stayed. I’ve just tried to delete the
groups in question but ran into a problem; one of our developers will look
into it ASAP. Thanks so much for the heads-up.

It’s true — there is no way to email all users save a system-wide admin
announcement, which we do very rarely, if at all, on the other Commons
installations I run. What do you think about creating a homepage slide that
links to a blog post or forum post somewhere on the site as a way of
getting the word out? Then, we can also tweet an announcement out.
If that sounds good to you, please send me a cc-licensed image (with
attribution info) and the text of the slide and we’ll put it up.
