Has the advent of the digital era created and imposed on us a very distinct way of experiencing emotion? Are we experiencing knowledge (its creation, acquisition, and processing); our own subjectivity (as thinking, sensate, corporeal subjectivity); our relationship with other individuals and groups; and art as spheres of aesthetic, political, and critical experience?

Have new media−some of them no longer all that new−developed their own ways of creating and transmitting affect? Are they responsible for our expanded capacity to create and transmit “sensations” and, thus, content? Or maybe it’s the other way around and new media are blocking channels and modes of communications we were using before the digital age?

Together with researchers and artists, we will look for answers to these and dozens of other questions during this three-hour-long seminar. As starting points for our discussions we will use our own experiences as authors (creators) and users of new media as well as the following readings, all of which are available online.
