Dr John Lenarcic and Dr Pradip Sarkar (RMIT School of Business IT and Logistics) present an overview of the big ideas of British media theorist Matthew Fuller.
Matthew Fuller is Professor of Cultural Studies at the Department of Media and Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London. Fuller is the author of Behind the Blip: Essays on the Culture of Software (Autonomedia, 2003), Media Ecologies: Materialist Energies in Art and Technoculture (MIT Press, 2007), Evil Media (MIT Press, 2012), the latter co-written with Andrew Goffey, and How to Sleep: The Art, Biology and Culture of Unconsciousness (Bloomsbury, 2018).
Fuller edited the volume Software Studies: A Lexicon (MIT Press, 2008) and teaches the Software Studies module for the MA Digital Culture programme at Goldsmiths. His theoretical insights are inspired by such diverse thinkers as Marshall McLuhan, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari and Friedrich Kittler. But don't let that put you off from attending as the gist of Fuller will be decoded in as palatable a manner as possible.
