On December 16, Assistant Professor Jeffrey Kirkwood will present a talk at the International Research Institute for Cultural Technologies and Media Philosophy (IKKM) at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. His talk, titled “Modal Materialism: The Technological Fact of Counterfactual Thinking,” is a presentation of the research project he is undertaking during his fellowship at the institute this fall, which examines the history of media technologies in the visualization of counterfactual, contingent, and possible states.
