As some of you know already, I just finished my premaster and started two weeks ago with the master New Media and Digital Culture at the University Utrecht. As I spent a lot of time studying and devote a lot of time to my master, I though it would be nice to tell a little bit about my study on this blog.
The course I’m enrolled in at the moment is called New Media Archaeology, a course in which we’re investigating what it is exactly that is ‘new’ about new media. The picture above was mentioned in my second class. It’s a postcard which depicts a videophone, a communication tool of which people in 1910 thought we would communicate in the year 2000. Pretty cool don’t you think? And it is kind of true, as we’re using Facetime, Google Hangout and Skype to see and speak to each other, even though we’re on other sides of the world.
Now I have to keep on reading for our next class (yes, at 21:41 still in the library…) but I’ll tell a little bit more about this course and the other course I’m enrolled in next time.
Have a nice Monday evening!
