The Digital Studies Center will host the Rutgers–Camden Archive of Digital Ephemera (R–CADE) on Friday, April 19, from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the Digital Commons in Johnson Park. Participants will take part on a series of panels and workshops, with topics such as “The Printer is Broken: Investigating 3D Waste” and “Trashgames Workshop.” This year’s event will include a keynote address by Sarah T. Roberts, Assistant Professor in the UCLA Department of Information Studies, Graduate School of Education & Information Studies and a 2018 Andrew Carnegie Fellow. Her work is concerned with social and economic equity and issues of power, control, and justice at the intersection of our analog and digital worlds. Her current research addresses what she calls “commercial content moderation,” which involves the use of human labor and digital systems to filter content on various digital platforms. Her book, Behind the Screen: Content Moderation in the Shadows of Social Media, will be published by Yale University Press in 2019.
This event is free, but registration is required.
