MITH’s (Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanites) first Digital Dialogue of the spring 2006 semester will be a discussion of William Gibson’s novel Pattern Recognition (2003), on Tuesday, Feb. 7th at 12:30 P.M. in the MITH seminar room.
Pattern Recognition has been widely received as Gibson’s most significant and prescient work since he coined the term “cyberspace” in Neuromancer in 1984.
Our discussion will be the basis for three additional Digital Dialogues, to be held at intervals throughout the semester, each of which will explore the general theme of “pattern recognition,” a heuristic for much of MITH’s current research, in varied contexts.
MITH is located in McKelden Library on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park. Click here for map and directions.
