As if the Digital Labor bash at the New School and Yale’s New Media Ecology wasn’t double booking enough, SVA has also put together a conference on November 14th. Jonathan Crary will be speaking. The title is Media Modes.

SSRC forum on public sphere

November 4, 2009

The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) has launched a special feature on public sphere formation on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall on November 9, 2009, hosted on the essay forum “Transformations of the Public Sphere”, co-sponsored by NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge (IPK). With essays by Andrew Arato, Mark Beissinger, Jeffrey Goldfarb, Konrad Jarausch, Michael Kennedy, Elzbieta Matynia, Steven Pfaff and forthcoming essays by Hauke Brunkhorst, Jack Goldstone, Julia Hell, and others. The forum is interactive. Readers are invited to submit comments.

The essay forum is accompanied by the beta version of the Public Sphere Guide, seeking to create a map of the fragmented interdisciplinary field of study on the public sphere. This mapping project serves as a research guide and teaching guide and as a resource for the renewal of the public sphere.
