Media Archaeology – 3 credits

International Graduate Summer School

May 23–27, 2017

Media Archaeology (ENGL603) looks at obsolete and forgotten apparatuses, practices and inventions in order to scrutinize our rapidly-evolving media culture. Participants learn through a mix of writing, thinking, discussing, and, most importantly, through hands-on encounters with materials in the collection of the Concordia Residual Media Depot.

Whether you’re looking to demystify hardware modification, software hacking and digital forensics, or to develop a critical and theoretical relationship with material media technologies, knowledge production is a collaborative process where participants from any discipline bring different approaches to the table. 


Local, national and international graduate students from any discipline with an interest in contemporary media culture.
