Updating to Remain the Same: Habitual New Media

“Theorist Wendy Chun joins post-secondary students and faculty to discuss her forthcoming book Updating to Remain the Same: Habitual New Media (16), in which she argues that technologies matter most not when they are new, but when they have become obsolete – when their use becomes habitual. In this public lecture, Chun will explore how the slow, “creepy” accretion of habits – both conscious and unconscious – relate to distinctions between public and private, memory and storage, and individual actions and social systems.”
