New | Media Archives

How do we preserve an obsolete technology? How do we view and understand a work of art produced for a system that no longer exists? New media technologies present a host of new and challenging concerns for archivists, with a wide range of approaches to the preservation and even resurrection of dead media objects and systems.

Join us Friday, November 15th at 5pm for the second event in this year's PROGRAM lecture series. New | Media Archives brings together Lori Emerson (CU Boulder) and Ben Fino-Radin (MOMA) to address the concerns and opportunities of archiving new media technologies, and the ways new media have in turn transformed traditional archival practices.

Sponsored by Information Futures, the Humanities Initiative, and the NYU Departments of Media Culture, and Communication; English; Comparative Literature; and Cinema Studies.
