Structuring Stardom: Identity and the Transmigration of Image in the work of David Bowie’

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


TechKnowledgies: New Imaginaries and Transmigrations in the Humanities, Arts, and TechnoSciences is a diverse collection of essays, a recently produced technology play by William Kennedy, art, and installations that represent, and at times resist, the ways science and technology are interacting with the arts and the humanities to produce new imaginaries and disciplinary transmigrations that gesture towards a “university” of tomorrow. As theorists’ posit new futures and call for an end to historically grounded, or discipline-based, so-called silo approaches to knowledges, a de facto reorganization of disciplinary boundaries and a migratory spirit have spontaneously infused the humanities with new life.

These transmigrations, instead of diffusing the disciplinary terrain, have strengthened and broadened existing fields. They are provoking re-mappings of intellectual topography, and, ironically, have brought about more rather than less integration. Activated by such massive cultural shifts as the turn from print to visual culture; the technological revolution and its virtual sublimes; the acceleration of scientific advances; the rise and incorporation of mass or popular culture and the possibilities of replication, the humanities are producing integrated knowledges, what we are calling new TechKnowledgies, that interface the humanities, the arts, the social and hard sciences with digital technologies and research emerging at the borders of all these fields.
