Media Archaeology and New Media Studies

This talk introduces media archaeology not only as a textual method, but also as a practical engagement with contemporary technical media cultures. I discuss its developing relations with new fields such as software studies, and show how its agendas must develop from reliance on visual media to more varied modalities of media sensation and logic.

Bio Dr Jussi Parikka is media theorist and the Director of Cultures of the Digital Economy (CoDE)-institute at Anglia Ruskin University. His books include Digital Contagions (2007), and the co-edited volumes The Spam Book (2009) and the forthcoming Media Archaeology (2011).
