The "Collaborative for the Critical Study of Technology" at UIUC (of which I am a founding member) fosters experiments in theory and interdisciplinarity. Last week, CCST hosted a lecture by Lawrence Liang (Yale University/Ambedkar University) and Nishant Shah (Leuphana University) titled "The Post-Digital U-turn." It featured some of Lawrence's work with pad.ma - the wonderfully visual, accessible, and voluminous film archive and data base.
Susan Koshy directs CCST -- a humanities based research group that investigates how technological applications link up with other social developments in culture, politics, ethics, and public policy. https://criticism.english.illinois.edu/
