Guest Speaker Patrick Crogan

The Irish Screen Studies Seminar is pleased to announce that Dr. Patrick Crogan of the University of the West of England, Bristol will be giving a public lecture at 11 o’clock on Friday 9 May. The title of the lecture will be:

    Technology, technicity and time: Reanimating old questions for film and media theory in the wake of Bernard Stiegler’s philosophical activism

This lecture is the keynote event of the Irish Screen Studies Seminar. It will take place in the Arts Technology Research Laboratory (ATRL), which is on Pearse Street.

Patrick Crogan is at the forefront of critical approaches to technology and digital cultures, technoculture, gaming, military robotics, and the work of Bernard Stiegler. His 2011 publication Gameplay Mode (University of Minnesota Press) examines the connections between contemporary computer games and the technoscience of the military-industrial complex since the 1940s.

He is centrally involved in the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England, and he has twice been an invited contributor to the summer school of the Ecole de philosophie d’Epineuil le Fleuriel, which is organised by Ars Industrialis. He is a noted expert and writer on the work of media and technology philosopher/activist, Bernard Stiegler, some of whose works he has translated into English.

The seminar is aimed at researchers in film and in screen culture in the broadest sense, which includes fields such as television, digital media, networks, transmedia, technoculture, and gaming. It is designed to provide a platform for the presentation of new research by scholars in Irish third-level institutions, and for those working on Irish topics in non-Irish universities and colleges.
