Dear CTheory readers,

We are pleased to announce an upcoming lecture by Dr. Timothy Murray
titled “The Aesthetics of Digital Longing.” Co-sponsored by the Graduate
Program in Cultural, Social and Political Thought and the Pacific Centre
for Technology and Culture at the University of Victoria, the lecture will
focus on the future of digital aesthetics under the sign of Deleuze and
Ranciere.  Professor Murray’s presentation will introduce some of the
major themes to be discussed in CSPT’s “Thinking Politically” workshop
April 15-17, 2011 at the University of Victoria.

Professor of Comparative Literature and English and Director of the
Society for the Humanities, Cornell University, Dr. Murray’s research and
teaching crosses the boundaries of new media, film and video, visual
studies, twentieth-century Continental philosophy and English and French
early modern studies. He is curator of the Rose Goldsen Archive of New
Media Art and co-curator of CTheory Multimedia. His books include among
others, _Digital Baroque: New Media Art and Cinematic Folds_ and the
forthcoming title, _Immaterial Archives: Curatorial Instabilities @ New
Media Art_.

The lecture will also be streamed through CTheory Live
(http://pactac.net/watch-ctheory-live/) at 2:00 PM PST (April 15th). We’ve
recently switched streaming technologies at PACTAC, and believe the
previous problems with our stream have been resolved.

Kind regards,

Arthur and Marilouise Kroker, editors
