Life has returned to the RUB Campus this summer term 2022 and so has our RUSTlab lecture series. Feel free to join our lectures on the respective dates from 14:15-15:45 hrs UTC+2 (convert time) on Campus or live on Zoom!
This term’s guiding theme is: Data Traces
What are data, but traces? Traces of breathing life, of long-lost beings, of the smallest movement or of the largest universes. They are passages from phenomena, events or practices to reading, computing and interpretation. Data translate traces, they sort and infrastructure traces. And data generate their own traces. This term we’ll think about data as traces; traces that are inscribed into technology, translated and accumulated.
