Life in Pixels series with Nicole Starosielski

Nicole Starosielski, Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University, is author and co-editor of many books on media, infrastructure, and environments: The Undersea Network (2015), Media Hot and Cold (2021), Signal Traffic: Critical Studies of Media Infrastructure (2015), Sustainable Media: Critical Approaches to Media and Environment (2016), Assembly Codes: The Logistics of Media (2021), as well as co-editor of the “Elements” series at Duke University Press. Starosielski’s most recent project involves working with the subsea cable industry–which lays the transnational links of the internet–to generate a carbon footprint of the global links of our digital network and to make digital infrastructures more sustainable.

Registration required for this event must take place prior to the virtual book talk.

Life in Pixels hosts an ongoing series of transdisciplinary conversations thinking about how we can make sense of, and live with, our computational social condition today. Considering sociocultural, aesthetic, politicoeconomic, environmental, racial, and historical registers of technology together, the series will bring together people who think and do technology beyond disciplinary boundaries. The events are all designed as an ongoing series of conversations between scholars and practitioners in Media Studies, Science and Technology Studies, History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, Critical Digital Studies, and Literary Cultural Studies.

Life in Pixels is generously sponsored by the Ruth and Paul Idzik College Chair in Digital Scholarship, the Program in History and Philosophy of Science, the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society, the Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship, and the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre at the University of Notre Dame.
