    Hi all,

    ** This is a re-scheduled event from Oct. 20th **

    Please join us on Thursday, Dec. 1st, at 5:30 PM in room 5307 for an event co-hosted by the MS Program in Data Analysis and Visualization with UnionDocs.

    Exhaustion and Labor in the Digital Age:
    Tung-Hui Hu in conversation with artist Elisa Giardina Papa
    The Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave, Room 5307

    Eventbrite registration here. This is an in person event.

    Author, poet, and media theorist Tung-Hui Hu in conversation with Elisa Giardina Papa discuss Hu’s new book, Digital Lethargy: Dispatches from an Age of Disconnection.

    As a modern ailment, digital lethargy is a societal pathology, like earlier forms of acedia, otium, and neurasthenia, but also a disease of performing selfhood under digital capitalism. Tung-Hui Hu makes the argument that digital lethargy helps us turn away from the demand to constantly “be ourselves” and see the potential of quieter, more ordinary forms of survival in the digital age such as collective inaction. (New Books Network)

    He is joined in conversation by Italian artist Elisa Giardina Papa (Venice Biennale, MoMA, Whitney), whose work investigates gender, sexuality, and labor in relationship to neoliberal capitalism and the borders of the global South.

    Flyer attached. Please also share with anyone who might be interested.
