Mobility Media: an Archaeology of Identity Photography through Science, Art and Visual Culture
Eszter Polonyi, unpublished conference contribution

Abstract: n an era of total surveillance, being in possession of a biometric ID document can still result in denial of one’s basic civil protections and human rights. The discovery of systematic errors in state-implemented facial recognition programs—such as in recognizing faces of color (Joy Buolamwini)—suggests the failure of current practices of global intelligence and mobility. This paper offers an archaeological investigation of the contemporary photo ID document. Returning to its invention in the 1920s, it examines the issues of conjectural knowledge (Carl Ginzburg), embodiment or tact (Béla Balázs) and the optical unconscious (Walter Benjamin) behind early “physiognomic” media.

Hackers and Coders versus Viewers: The Stakes of Photography in an Era of Image Massification : Tomáš Dvořák and Jussi Parikka, eds., Photography Off the Scale: Technologies and Theories of the Mass Image (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2021).
Eszter Polonyi, 2021, review article

Abstract: The book Photography Off the Scale: Technologies and Theories of the Mass Image is, first of all, about quantities. Those with memories of pre-smartphone years may suspect that the images of this world have increased in number. Perhaps fewer, however, are aware of just how much. Among the first things we learn in this book is that, in 2018, over 30 million images were uploaded to Twitter, 52 million to Instagram, and 350 million to Facebook — daily (25). For someone who makes a handful of uploads a week, this was news. Who could possibly be looking at them? It turns out, no one. Even if everyone on Earth spent eight hours scrolling through images, they would not all get seen (25). The quantities are just too large. This book claims that the now unconscionable scale at which images circulate and are produced is because they are actually no longer tailored to the human. Interrogating an optics of “ec- centric metrics” (Dvořák), the book tackles one of the liveliest issues in image studies, media studies, and art history today — machine vision, or the vision of the human eye as it is extended by technical apparatuses. It is this seeing “by other means” that the book alleges has thrown the number of images “off the scale.”

Digitalizacija kulturne dediščine v dveh projektih programa Študentski inovativni projekti za družbeno korist : digitalizacija, korespondence, elektronske zbirke, aleksandrinke, študentski projekt, digitalna humanistika
Katja Mihurko, Narvika Bovcon, Aneta Ivanovska, Tina Smrekar, 2020, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: Članek predstavi dva projekta digitalizacije in spletne predstavitve kulturne dediščine aleksandrink in različnih skupin žensk, ki so večinsko povezane s primorskim in notranjskim geografskim prostorom: v prvem primeru gre za bazo podatkov o aleksandrinkah, v drugem pa za digitalizirano pisemsko dediščino. Program Študentskih inovativnih projektov za družbeno korist je odlična platforma za pilotske projekte s področja digitalne humanistike, saj predvideva interdisciplinarno delovno skupino študentov in mentorjev ter v korist lokalne skupnosti usmerjene praktične rezultate projekta.

Comparative literature and digital humanities
Aleš Vaupotič, 2019, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The "Comparative literature and digital humanities" paper was part of the panel "Postdigital Comparatism: New methods, new frameworks, new questions?", organized by Amelia Sanz (Complutense University of Madrid), Aleš Vaupotič (University of Nova Gorica), and Silvia Ulrich (Universita di Torino). This panel tries to describe and to evaluate the headway the Comparatism made at a time when cultures, literatures and criticism can be considered inevitably post-digital: after the digital revolution dealing with cultural habitus in the 21st century. Looking forward, what difference does it make? The point is the following: are digital archives, electronic devices, and tools modifying our disciplinary field just with regard to new available sources and dissemination strategies? Or are they creating any specific epistemological modeling? Is there any comparatist condition to be satisfied by digital methodologies? Are the digital humanities and the digital literary studies (still) distinguishable from general literary studies? Can electronic technologies and digital methodologies become hegemonic, even hypercolonial, over any epistemological sovereignty? How are the comparatists coping with the interdisciplinary constellations involved in using computer technologies in research? What is the difference between digitized literatures, and digital arts and literatures from a comparatist point of view? We should reflect on the use of the communication models from new-media art as a source for the emerging digital humanities genres. Why do comparatists seem so suspicious and skeptical towards digitization process and digital arts, whereas they are used to cross over cultures, oceans and media?
