Our third workshop session will be dedicated to Darren Wershler project: « Residual Media Depot : Between Media Archaeology and Cultural Technique ».
Darren Wershler is the holder of a Concordia University Research Chair (Tier 2) in Media & Contemporary Literature. His work focuses on the relationship between avant-garde art and writing on one hand and communication studies and media history on the other. Inside the academy, he has been a professor in both English and Communication Studies departments. He has also worked professionally as a writer, editor, designer and publisher of print and new media. As a result, he takes an interdisciplinary approach to research and teaching, and is committed to the notion that universities need to search continually for ways to build connections to people, organizations and things outside of themselves.
