Toronto, March 14 - 18, 2018
The Champlain Society is thrilled to announce the launch of its official podcast channel, Witness to Yesterday! This series of podcasts furthers the Society's mission of deepening awareness of Canada’s documentary past and of the people who created it.
I’m delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for the conference BLOCKS PLATES STONES: Print Matrices/Printing Surfaces in Collections & Research, 21 September 2017 at bit.ly/BlocksPlatesStones-Register. The conference will take place at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, followed by a reception at the British Academy. Please find details, the flier and the draft programme below, and please share widely.
From E.T.A Hoffmann’s Tales of Hoffmann and Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep to Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot and Vernor Vinge's Rainbows End authors have been exploring the human/machine interface since before the computer age. Today we stand on the threshold to the lab as the government contemplates microchipping all U.S. military personnel and Swedish office workers are already implanting themselves for convenience ala M.T.
Call for Articles: "The Final Frontier" (Unendliche Welten)
The "Portal Militärgeschichte" (portal for military history) focusses in its rubric "Unendliche Welten" (the final frontier) on topics of military history in the age of media diversity.
Until now, the core of the rubric comprised historical documentaries, war movies, and internet entries that deal with war and military history. On top of the profil of the rubric so far, contributions will also be published concerning "digital and online resources" and "computer games/virtual reality".
