A special session. Presiding: Grant Wythoff, Columbia Univ.

Speakers: Paul Benzon, Skidmore Coll.; Keegan Finberg, Vanderbilt Univ.; Jaime Lee Kirtz, Univ. of Colorado, Boulder; Jinying Li, Univ. of Pittsburgh; Grant Wythoff

This session offers critical considerations of the technologies of global capital at a local level. Following a pecha kucha format, each presenter focuses on a single key object within the global media landscape, offering a materially inflected close reading of that object as a way of raising larger issues including labor, embodiment, access, community, and history.
