On Monday, December 11, the Humanities Council will host the fourth lecture in a new, seven-part, year-long speaker series about the field of Media Studies, Positions and Prospects, organized by Devin Fore (German). Luciana Parisi, Goldsmiths, University of London, will, through an exploration of computational design as a medium of thought, ask how the critique of the digital can move beyond sheer instrumentality and mindless networks of decision-making.

She is a Reader in Cultural Theory at Goldsmiths, University of London, and currently a Visiting Professor of New Media Philosophy in the Department of Rhetoric at University of California, Berkeley.
