R-CADE Symposium

The Rutgers–Camden Archive of Digital Ephemera (R-CADE) makes digital technology available to scholars. This year's theme is technique. While many of us increasingly use the same devices, designed and manufactured by the same companies, we all have distinctly unique routines or rituals when it comes to using them. How do we analyze, write about, or celebrate the performance of an individual user? What do these techniques reveal about the values of a digital culture, or its beliefs about how complex technologies actually work? Panels will explore and experiment with the ways that techniques differ and diverge when using digital devices. The symposium curator and keynote speaker is Grant Wythoff, a visiting fellow with the Center for Humanities and Information at Pennsylvania State University.
