Crossroads 2016, Sydney

speaker-xroadsThe CFP for the Crossroads in Cultural Studies 2016 Conference in Sydney, December 14-17 is open until April 30. I’m very excited, and daunted, to be in a spotlight session on Popular Affect, with Sarah Banet-Waiser, John Erni and Catherine Driscoll, no less. If you haven’t been to a Xroads before, about time. And if you have, then you know it’s worth attending. ACS is definitely an organisation to support – and Sydney in mid-December sounds just about right.

Erkki Kurenniemi in 2048, or March 4, 2016

Writi9780262029582ng and Unwriting (Media) Art History: Erkki Kurenniemi in 2048, edited by Joasia Krysia and Jussi Parikka, came out from MIT Press’ Leonardo series late last year. The book explores the work (and some of the life) of Erkki Kurenniemi, composer of electronic music, experimental filmmaker, computer animator, roboticist, inventor, futurologist and porn aficionado. There have been book launches in Montreal and London and, on March 4, it’ll be Helsinki and Kiasma. Wish I could make it myself.
