Tara McPherson: Animating the Archive, 4/22 2-4 pm

Tara McPherson of USC will talk to UO Digital Scholars about “Animating the Archive” on Thursday 4/22 between 2:00-4:00 in the  EMU Collaboration Center, 22A Erb Memorial Union (see map). UO faculty, students, and the public are invited. McPherson will also take more general questions about digital scholarship.

Tara McPherson’s books and edited collections include Reconstructing Dixie: Race, Gender and Nostalgia in the Imagined South, Hop on Pop: The Politics and Pleasures of Popular Culture, and Digital Youth, Innovation and the Unexpected (MIT, 2008.)  Interactive Frictions, co-edited with Marsha Kinder, is forthcoming from the University of California. She is working on a manuscript on the cultural and racial logics of code. Her new media research focuses on issues of convergence, gender, and race, as well as upon the development of new tools and paradigms for digital publishing, learning, and authorship. She is among the founding organizers of Race in Digital Space, a core member of HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory), and the founding editor of Vectors.

Tara McPherson will be in town for the Console-ing Passions Conference. The plenary session of that event will be on Friday 4/23 from 3:00-5:00pm in the EMU Ballroom:
