Revolution-recodifiedA conference organized by Coco Fusco and Chris Stover, and hosted by The New School and New York University
March 15 – 17, 2013

The Revolution Recodified is a three-day conference at The New School and New York University about the impact of digital technology in Cuban culture and society. For more than a decade, Cuban artists, musicians, independent journalists and librarians have teamed with computer scientists and engineers on the island and in the diaspora to foment a socially engaged and politically independent culture using digital technology. The conference will explore the ways that digital technology is transforming Cuba’s cultural and political landscape by challenging the state’s longstanding monopoly on communications media and its hegemonic control of cultural production and distribution.

The Revolution Recodified is sponsored by The New School’s Academic Events Fund, Parsons Cross School Funds, Eugene Lang College, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, The Vera List Center for Art and Politics, New York University’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, NYU’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures, NYU’s Department of Comparative Literature, NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences and The Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy.
