Magic and Loss: The Internet as Art

November 18, 2017
2:35 pm
- 3:50 pm


Dudley H. Davis Center
Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2017. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

In just fifty years, the Internet has evolved from a military and engineering project to an extension of traditional media to its own full-fledged civilization. Writer and cultural critic Virginia Heffernan presents an original and far-reaching analysis of what the Internet is and does. Life online—in its current social, portable, hackable, global incarnation—rewards certain virtues and punishes others. Heffernan will explore how the Internet’s forms and functions are changing how we perceive, experience, and understand the world.
