CTheory Announcement:
PACIFIC CENTRE FOR TECHNOLOGY AND CULTURE (PACTAC)

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture.

Located at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture (PACTAC) is conceived as a unique interdisciplinary institute for researching and teaching issues related to the impact of technological change on culture, politics and society. Simultaneously a centre of global intellectual exchange and an innovative and collaborative site for exploring the digital future, PACTAC approaches the question of technology from perspectives which are interdisciplinary in scope, critical in sensibility, and creative, experimental and immersive in method.

CTHEORY is an integral part of the intellectual project of the Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture. "Electronic Theory: Science, Terror and Nihilism," PACTAC's inaugural lecture series (listed below) will be streamed and archived on CTHEORY?s web site (www.ctheory.net).

The Pacific Centre for Technology and Culture has been created within the context of Dr. Arthur Kroker's Canada Research Chair in Technology, Culture and Theory, Department of Political Science, University of Victoria and is supported with infrastructure funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund as well as the generous support of the University of Victoria.

kind regards,

Arthur and Marilouise Kroker
