VIRTUAL TALK: Alan Liu, “Friending the Past: The Sense of History in the Digital Age”

University of California Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA, United States

"In Friending the Past, Alan Liu explores how we can learn from the relationship between past societies whose media forms fostered a communal and self-aware sense of history. Interlaced among these inquiries, Liu shows how extensive 'network archaeologies' can be constructed as novel ways of thinking about our affiliations with time and with each other."
