Difference and Repetition: Academic Labour after RSI
Thursday 25th May 2017, 6-7:30 PM
Academic labour is often considered to be abstract and disembodied in the popular imagination, and its recent transformation by digital technologies might make this seem even more the case. But the advent of the digital also makes all with digits, physically standardising scholarly activity into the same few motions required to interact with a keyboard, mouse or screen. Academic work has a real, and for some, a lasting, corporeal impact.

Programme of study
Humanities have long since recognized the importance of critical reading and thinking, or the ability for students to engage in higher-order thinking skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate texts and ideas.
