Example text

Royle 62) The fractured body of the academetron is becoming a very strange body indeed. What does it imply that the body of learning is becoming synergistic with the learning body of the cyborg? When teachers stand up at their e-podiums in their smart classrooms, all facing the pearlescent image-filled screens, what is happening, what is the event of the university that is transpiring? The Aesthetics of Spectrality 27 The twenty-first-century university is a hybridizing body, but in the process of its becoming it brings its past along with it like an afterbirth.

Hiroshima, managed in the opposite way, is the name that goes unspoken. (4) Hiroshima awaits in all the modes of temporality.
