    Hi All,

    This looks like a terrific event at Bard Graduate Center




    Jesse Merandy started the topic Digital Distance Symposium in the forum
    NYCDH Announcements:

    Digital Distance Symposium
    April 6, 2018, 1:00 – 6:00 pm at Bard Graduate Center
    Register for this event:

    New technologies frequently challenge our notions of distance by shifting
    perceptions of time and space which, in both subtle and radical ways, alter
    our relationships to our physical environments and social networks. This
    symposium focuses on recent advances in mobile technologies and new media
    and the ways that they are complicating, expanding, and disrupting our
    understanding of temporal, physical, and social distance. Papers presented
    will explore this topic through a variety of technologies that will help
    illuminate the changes, challenges, opportunities, and disorientations we
    face and their implications for the future.
