Upcoming Event!

Monday 12/6: 12 - 1 PM PST

Virtual DH book talk featuring Andrea Righi (Associate Professor of Italian Studies at Miami University of Ohio). 

Join us to discuss his latest book, The Other Side of the Digital: The Sacrificial Economy of New Media (University of Minnesota, 2021), a necessary, rich new examination of how the wired world affects our humanity. Andrea Righi deconstructs contradictions inherent in our digital world, examining how ideas of knowledge, desire, writing, temporality, and the woman are being reconfigured by our sacrificial economy. The Other Side of the Digital provides a necessary, in-depth cultural analysis of how the political theology of the new media functions under neoliberalism.

The talk will be of interest to anyone curious about how our self-image and perception of reality are skewed by technologies like fitness brands, matchmaking apps, and search engines, among others.

This event is co-sponsored with the Italian Program and the Department of European Studies with CAL's IRA funds.
