Last week, on May 7th 2019, we had our first PASSIM seminar. This was a first for us, at least in the sense of doing a seminar and webinar at the same time. José Bellido and Matts Lindström’s discussion on microfilm was an excellent illustration of how rich the intersection between technologies of law and technologies of media can be, an intersection that PASSIM explores in different ways and different historical periods. Matts opened the seminar with a sweeping and informative overview of the microfilm’s relationship to the fragility of paper and to the industrialization of information, aspects that are crucial in trying to understand the past but also the present of a media technology that appears almost extinct. José’s more PASSIM-oriented talk showed how microfilm intervenes in a particular practice and institution – the patent office and in the work of patent examiners. Fascinating stuff! You can enjoy the dialogue between our two presenters and also the questions and discussion that followed on our website: http://www.passim.se

 

Getting ready to broadcast. In socks.
