Higher Learning: Wendy Chun on Habitual New Media

Higher Learning: Wendy Chun on Habitual New Media Dates: November 5, 2016 Event Time(s): 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Website: http://tiff.net/spring2016-special-events/higher-learning-wendy-chun-on-lecture-title Cost Information: Post-secondary students and faculty may reserve tickets in advance! Remaining tickets will be available from the Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office two hours before the event on a first-come, first-served basis. Theorist Wendy Chun joins post-secondary students and faculty to discuss her forthcoming book Updating to Remain the Same: Habitual New Media (16), in which she argues that technologies matter most not when they are new, but when they have become obsolete - when their use becomes habitual. Join us at TIFF Bell Lightbox where Chun will explore how the slow, "creepy" accretion of habits - both conscious and unconscious - relate to distinctions between public and private, memory and storage, and individual actions and social systems. This event is co-presented by TIFF and York University's Department of Visual Art & Art History. . Event Details. Location: 350 King Street W, Toronto
