Post-pixellation: What Do We Do After the Electronic Revolution?

Lecture Room B
13 Banbury Rd

2:30pm, 23rd February, 1999

Speculations on what might happen to our concepts of textuality and
identity once the digital revolution is no longer revolutionary. What will
be the presiding tropes of text for the next millennium? Can we look for a
new Marxist/Hegelian antithesis to be embedded in the received truths of
digitization, and what form is that antithesis likely to take? Will the
electronic revolution eventually look like rather a minor blip in the
history of textual transmission, or will it really hold a similar status
to that of Gutenberg (who, in a recent 'popular' book on the 1,000 most
influential people of the current millenium, was rated No 1)?
