On Jodi Dean’s “The Limits of Communication”

Today I had the pleasure of presenting and conducting the final class discussion of the MACT 2013 Spring Institute. This has been an amazingly enriching and occasionally grueling three weeks, but in spite of all the griping I’ve done, I feel an immense sense of satisfaction that I completed something very difficult.

Jodi Dean presents a rather pessimistic view of modern networked communication in her article “The Limits of Communication.” Although she presents a very convincing argument, I am less pessimistic than she is. My MACT cohort is proof enough that there are many very intelligent and engaged people who are using their unique skills to make the world a better place. I am truly blessed to have been part of this class.

In case you are interested, here are my slides. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss: http://www.haikudeck.com/p/qLAIXBQdWp/the-limits-of-communication
