The digital epoch has destroyed many traditional institutional knowledge practices while transforming and inventing a plethora of others. What is at stake in the current reconfiguration of knowledge in the 21st century? That question must be posed in planetary terms. The digital infrastructure of knowledge is a new spatial, political, and cultural form of reason that must be grasped in its broadest form. The planet itself — fully entangled in the Anthropocene with human technologies, human reason — appears throughout the topologies and topographies of these new infrastructures of knowledge. Sponsored by the Townsend Center, the Dean of Humanities, the Berkeley Center for New Media, the Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, & Society, and the Department of Rhetoric.
