David Cecchetto, Assistant Professor in New Media History and Criticism at OCAD, will be presenting a practice-based theory of posthumanism in a TCP Speakers’ Series talk on Monday, Feb. 11th at 7:30pm in Bagnani Hall. Cecchetto’s artistic work includes traditional composition, algorithmic sound manipulation, and collaboration distorted by distance; he will draw on that work in “Humanesis and the Sonic Effect: Operational Listening in Digital Culture” to argue that dominant strains of posthumanist theory tend to fall back on humanist assumptions despite their ostensible privileging of the material. All are welcome.
In addition to the public talk, Cecchetto will be giving a TCP seminar on the morning of Tuesday, Feb. 12. Graduate students in TCP, Cultural Studies, and Public Texts are invited to attend. Please contact David Holdsworth (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
