“Mendacious Technologies”

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

Logan 028

4:30 – 6:00 PM

This is a short version of the second chapter of my current book project, Instruments and Order. I prepared this version for an edited collection, Testing Hearing, which grew out of a workshop at the Max Planck Institute, organized by Alix Hui, Mara Mills, and Viktoria Tkaczyk.

I’ll talk a little bit about the larger book project in my introductory remarks and I will also share some of the material from the expanded version of this chapter. This is very much work in progress and I am eager for feedback!
