Title: Screenology: Media Archaeology of the Screen.
Abstract: Screens surround our lives, but what do we know about their history? This lecture presents a media archaeology of the screen, excavating their past and present forms within a period of 500 years. The point of the talk is to demonstrate that to understand “media screens” it is worth studying their earlier forms, both material and imaginary. The lecture gives a sneak preview of the speaker’s big new book that will be published in 2017.
