If obsolescence is both a condition and consequence of media culture, how can we approach and articulate the relationship between oldness and newness, obsolescence and innovation, with regard to changes in cinematic form, technology, and scholarship?

To address the allure of the “now” which pervades approaches to everything from Blu-ray technology to Speculative Realism, we affirm the need to turn back in order to imagine what lies ahead.
