Bodies and Devices: Geolocative Media

When: Thursday 28 November 2019, 9am – 4pm

Where: Forgan Smith Building, roomE-302

RSVP here

2018’s Bodies, Devices, and Platforms Symposium considered various ways the body intersects with the digital spaces in which we increasingly live our lives, and the devices through which we connect. This year, the Bodies and Devices Symposium returns to explore the networked body as fundamental to understandings of both the body and the digital economy.

The geolocated body is tracked, networked, coded, monitored and represented on a range of digital media platforms. This involves making available the body to the algorithmic and participatory logics of digital media platforms and an entangling of its experiences with these architectures. In this one-day symposium, our speakers will address the commingling of our bodies with space that is no longer simply physical, but an integrated digital network.
