Looks Like New: What is a Lab?

What Is a Lab? With Lori Emerson of the Media Archaeology Lab

CU Boulder’s Media Archaeology Lab is a place where artists, scholars, students, and tinkerers can come to use apparently obsolete computers and other technology.

Founding director Lori Emerson, professor of English and Intermedia Art, Writing, and Performance, discusses her lab and the history of labs in general.

    Looks Like New: What is a Lab? KGNU News


MEDLab’s radio show and podcast, Looks Like New, asks old questions about new tech.

Each month, host Nathan Schneider speaks with someone who works with technology in ways that challenge conventional narratives and dominant power structures. The name comes from the phrase “a philosophy so old that it looks like new,” repeated throughout the works of Peter Maurin, the French agrarian poet and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.

You can hear Looks Like New the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m., or online as a podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.
