ReWired: Asian/TechnoScience/Area Studies

Location: University of Hawai'i, Manoa | Time: August 1-10, 2011

The 2011 Seminar in Experimental Critical Theory (SECT VII) seeks to elucidate rapidly transforming landscapes of knowledge production, the shaping of contemporary knowledge institutions, their impact on social life in intense urban contexts, and this century’s techno-scientific horizons of possibility. Comprehending these movements, forces, and structures requires integrating deep understandings of history and politics represented by Asian and critical Area Studies with emergent work on the transnational dynamics of science and technology as well as on market economies and their modes of governance. Convened by Kavita Philip and David Theo Goldberg and hosted by UCHRI in conjunction with the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Hawai’i, Mānoa. Visit the seminar website.
