We are pleased to announce the Autumn 2014 series of Digital Studies Seminars. These will be centralised around a reading of Bernard Stiegler’s Symbolic Misery – Volume 1: The Hyperindustrial Epoch.
All three seminars will take place in the new Gradcam Seminar Room, on DIT’s new campus at Grangegorman.
The dates and topics of discussion are as follows:
Wednesday 24 September @ 17h30 – A Review of Stieglerian Terminology: An overview of terminology, and thus, of the concepts themselves. This will be very useful to anyone new to Stiegler’s writings.
Wednesday 15 October @ 17h30 – Stiegler and Heidegger: How, if at all, has Stiegler developed Heidegger’s theories?
Wednesday 29 October @ 17h30 – Stiegler and the Frankfurt School: How has Stiegler progressed and extended the Frankfurt Schools tradition of cultural critique?
We look forward to discussing the topics with everyone.
