<nettime-ann> Networks and Enclaves: Free Conference UC Irvine

(Apologies for cross-postings)

‘Networks and Enclaves: Open Access and Work in the 21st Century University’,
University of California, Irvine, February 11-12, 2010.
1030 Humanities Gateway

Presented by the UCI Humanities Center in Conjunction with HumaniTech, with support from the University of California Humanities Research Institute and Coventry University, UK.

This conference focuses on the ways digital media, and the emergence of online networks, communities and Web 2.0, continue to disrupt and reform traditional ideas about community, the public sphere, and professional and institutional standards. It brings together diverse scholars to look at the historical and theoretical grounds upon which access has become one of the most salient issues of our day. The conference includes some of the most important historians, thinkers and theorists of Networks. They will examine the new models for work in the 21st Century University offered by digital media and open access.
