Andrew Prescott is Professor of Digital Humanities in the School of Critical Studies, University of Glasgow, and Theme Leader for the AHRC ‘Digital Transformations’ strategic theme. His research covers books, archives, digitisation, and the limits of the digital.
Fabio Lattanzi Antinori is a London based artist working in a wide range of media. His multi-sensory, interactive works explore issues such as contemporary corporate systems, their corruption and fall, and the role of data in the contemporary world.
Eduardo Kac is Professor of Art & Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His ‘transgenic’ or ‘bio’ art explores and critiques a range of topics including the fluidity of subject positions, the impact of biotechnology, language and the book in the post-digital age.
This event is co-sponsored by the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, the School of Media and Communication.
The talks are free and open to the public.
