The Richard Rorty Archive Conference Website Goes Live

There has been some great press for the Richard Rorty Archive conference, "Time Will Tell, But Epistemology Won't," from Bruce Sterling at Wired and Ian Bogost in a posting on his blog. You can check out the full schedule below. The conference website is now live. Thanks to our generous sponsors, there is no fee for attendance, so I would encourage people in the Southern California area who are interested in philosophy, critical theory, the digital humanities, rhetoric, or archival politics to attend.
