Media Archaeology Lab Blog Post: The Ephemerality of Breakage and the Degradation of the Vectrex

This is the second post in a series I’m working on, posting for the Media Archaeology Lab (MAL). I’m looking at devices here in Maryland, at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), while writing on devices that the MAL also holds in its collections. This week I write on the Vectrex, a vector-graphics based home video console, first sold in 1982–I write on both its then economic demise and its now current technological failure.

Digital Humanities Interview

My recent interview by Jillian Gilmer (University of Colorado, Boulder) has just been published on Lori Emerson’s class site: “THEORY & PRACTICE OF “DOING” // FROM DIGITAL HUMANITIES TO POSTHUMANITIES.” I’m still working through reading the other interviews, but they’re all quite good!

Here’s the Link to the Interview.
