The Cultural History of Magnetic Recording

April 19, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, UH Manoa iLab (Building 37) Add to Calendar

Lecture by Dr. Jentery Sayers

This talk walks audiences through various moments in early magnetic recording to then articulate how they shape our present moment. Key to this articulation is not only a historical shift from "inscribing" to "impressing" information onto storage media but also a gesture to imagine sound (and not just print or the codex) as fundamental to how we approach electronic text and other new media from the 1980s forward.

Jentery Sayers is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Victoria, with research interests in comparative media studies, digital humanities, Anglo-American modernism, computers and composition, and teaching with technologies.

Presented by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Digital Arts and Humanities Initiative with generously support from the Dai Ho Chun Distinguished Lecturer Fund at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Colleges of Arts and Sciences.
