Emeriti Faculty Lecture featuring Helene Moglen
"From Frankenstein to Facebook"; Reflections on the Dissolution of the Humanities.
Are accounts of our love affairs with machines stories of imprisonment or empowerment? Are we in charge of our avatars, personal profiles and robots, or have they actually mastered us? Drawing on Mary Shelley's iconic science fiction novel, Frankenstein, Moglen explores the relation of humanism to technology and considers the various realities that pleasures of the virtual have concealed.
