Announcing the 2015-2016 ATC Series!

The Berkeley Center for New Media is proud to announce the 2015-2016 lineup of Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium speakers! The theme of this year’s program is “Global Circulations.” Lectures will be held in the Banatao Auditorium of Sutardja Dai Hall from 7:30-9:00pm on Monday evenings. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis with doors opening at 7:15pm.

The ATC series is produced by the Berkeley Center for New Media (BCNM) in collaboration with the ARC/Arts + Design Initiative, with support from the Office of the Vice Chancellor and Provost, the Center for Information Technology in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), Meyer Sound, the Townshend-Lamarre Foundation, and Theo Armour. Berkeley’s ATC lecture series is an internationally known forum for presenting new ideas that challenge conventional wisdom about technology and culture. This series, free of charge and open to the public, presents artists, writers, curators, and scholars who consider contemporary issues at the intersection of aesthetic expression, emerging technologies, and cultural history, from a critical perspective.
