Stephane Couture, Gabriella Coleman & Stefan Sinclair – Mining IRC Conversations - DH Work In Progress Series
Stephane Couture, Gabriella Coleman & Stefan Sinclair will outline their prototype for mining IRC conversations in the first Work in Progress series for Winter 2014.
Montreal's Digital Humanities community is gathering this year at UQaM for the 2014 Showcase / Vitrine. The afternoon will see quick-paced presentations of current work in Digital Humanities from Montreal's research universities by faculty and student researchers. The Showcase is open to the public; if you're not into digital humanities (yet!) this is a great way to come and meet people in the field, and get a taste of what is going on across the city.
Prof. Ferraris will present his work on Postmodernism and Realism this tuesday.
The talk will examine four theses:
The first (relativism) is a critique of post-modern assumption that reality as a whole is socially constructed, this thesis has given a distorted view of the media as omnipotent manufacturers of reality;
The second (new realism) is the thesis that a fundamental layer of reality exists independently of media, but also our minds;
