About the Cultural Studies Colloquium Series: The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. 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
