My friend Liz Losh has let me know that this Friday UC Irvine is hosting a conference to celebrate the addition of Richard Rorty’s papers to the Critical Theory Archive. These “papers” include years worth of word-processing files, recovered from 3.5″ floppy disks, and so the conference is taking the opportunity to think through the changing nature of the archive as its materials become increasingly digital in addition to Rorty’s own significance for that archive.

Sadly, I can’t attend — I’m not only booked that day, but in fact double-booked — so I hope to follow the conference on Twitter and in the blogosphere, and hope that those discussions continue to add to the archive itself.
