Items of Interest

Filed under: General,Tools — kknight08 @ 4:54 pm

I thought others in the class might be interested in these:

1. The Succession of Simulacra: The Legacy of Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007).  This graduate conference will be held at UCSB and features Douglas Kellner as the keynote speaker.  Submissions are due Monday, February 4th.  If anyone is interested in attending from UCLA, I can help arrange carpools.

2. Alan Liu’s Toy Chest.   Part of the UCSB English Department Knowledge Base, the toy chest lists several free or inexpensive tools for online creation.  The list contains everything from mapping, to text analysis, to machinima creation tools.

  1. Thanks, Kim. The EDKB wiki is chock-full of goodies. I’m already downloading Moviestorm and the mashups look good too.
