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;
