1030 Humanities Gateway

Presented by the UCI Humanities Center in Conjunction with HumaniTech,

This conference focuses on the ways digital media, and the emergence of 
online networks, communities and Web 2.0, continue to disrupt and reform 
traditional ideas about community, the public sphere, and professional 
and institutional standards. It brings together diverse scholars to look 
at the historical and theoretical grounds upon which access has become 
one of the most salient issues of our day. The conference includes some 
of the most important historians, thinkers and theorists of Networks. 
They will examine the new models for work in the 21st Century University 
offered by digital media and open access.
