About the Cultural Studies Colloquium Series: The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

About “In Praise of Plasticity”:¬†Plasticity, in neurology, is the ability to adapt, change, grow and find new forms at multiple scalar levels whilst retaining, rerouting or developing function.¬†Professor Fuller examines the notion of plasticity as it is articulated by cybernetics, machine learning, and anarchism.

Matthew Fuller will be presenting and is a Professor of Cultural Studies and the Director of the Centre for Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London
