Discorrelation and the Post-Perceptual Image (Bogotá, video en español)

Video (in Spanish) of my talk, “Discorrelation and Post-Perceptual Image,” from September 12, 2019 at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá is now online.

Minutes before the talk, I was whisked away to give two separate interviews — one for an article that is now online, and one for a local television station (!), which I have not yet seen…

I am happy to announce that James Leo Cahill, Associate Professor and Director of the Cinema Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, will be holding a workshop session devoted to his recent book Zoological Surrealism at Stanford on November 13, 2019 (2-4pm in McMurtry 370). We are aiming for a discussion more than a lecture, and participants are asked to read the first chapter of Cahill’s book prior to the event.

On October 8, I will be giving a keynote lecture at “Cinemática II: O pós-cinema e a experimentação para além da tela” (Post-Cinema and Experimentation Beyond the Screen) at the Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil. My talk, titled “Discorrelated Images, Algorithmic Affects, and the Hyperinformatic Environment,” draws on my forthcoming book Discorrelated Images.

I am very excited to visit Brazil for the first time, and very grateful for the invitation from Prof. Giselle Gubernikoff of the Escola de Comunicações e Artes!

As I mentioned recently, I am getting ready for a trip to Bogotá, where I will be giving a series of workshops and two public lectures. Official announcements are now online for the talks, the first of which, on September 10 at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano, will be on “Animating Frankenstein: Film, Comics, and Serialized Visual Culture.” More info is online, here.

The second talk, on September 12 at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, deals with the topic of my forthcoming book: “Discorrelation and the Post-Perceptual Image.” More info is available here.

Both of the talks will apparently have live translation into Spanish!
