Unthought Meets The Assemblage Brain: A Dialogue Between N Katherine Hayles and Tony D Sampson

Unthought Meets The Assemblage Brain:

A Dialogue Between N Katherine Hayles and Tony D Sampson

Fig 4

My dialogue with N. Katherine Hayles has just been published in the latest issue of the excellent Capacious journal with illustrations by Dorota Piekorz (right) and Francesco Tacchini. Timely discussion given preparations for the Neuroaffect stream at the Capacious conference in August.

Abstract

What transpires in the unmediated space-time excess that moves, at once, between and alongside cognition and recognition, between and alongside formation and information, between and alongside prehension and comprehension? Following upon their most recent books—N Katherine Hayles’  Unthought: The Power of the Cognitive Unconscious (University of Chicago, 2017) and Tony D Sampson’ s The Assemblage Brain: Sense Making in Neuroculture (University of Minnesota, 2016), the convergences and divergences that emerge and weave throughout this conversation are quite revealing.
