Digital Studies — Dublin Paris #1

Below is the inaugural Digital Studies conversation between IRI (Institute of Research and Innovation), Paris, and GradCAM (Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media), Dublin. The atelier took place on 12 May 2014. The conversation revolves primarily around Bernard Stiegler’s philosophical concept of the Pharmakon.

The two texts that were used to catalyse the conversation were the introduction to Technics and Time 1 (Pages 1–18), and “A rational theory of Miracles: On Pharmacology and Transindividuation” (An Interview with Bernard Stiegler). It is possible to annotate the video on line if you have an account on the Lignes de Temps platform.

The sound quality is not great at the Dublin end, because the conference was conducted over Google Hangouts. Nevertheless it is audible and we intend to improve this in the future.
