A famous and iconic German thinker, Friedrich Kittler passed away in 2011 in Berlin. Some of the obituaries have stated that the German university has lost its last great figure. It is no exaggeration that Friedrich Kittler has singlehandedly revolutionized the humanities. When he declared "The Expulsion of Spirit from the Humanities" ("Die Austreibung des Geistes aus den Geisteswissenschaften") in one of his early essays, he paved the way for technology and media to enter the study of literature, art, and philosophical thought. A trained philologist and literary scholar, he founded the discipline now known as "Media Theory" and he has contributed significantly to create scientific and humanistic inroads in a number of areas of critical theory and thought. Beyond his exemplary contribution to the thinking organized around technology, scientific inquiry, and medial innovation, Friedrich Kittler always also remained a prolific and subtle literary critic, who inspired students on both sides of the Atlantic with his teaching and his books, many of which have been translated into numerous languages and are taught and studied as essential texts of the Humanities.

With this commemorative colloquium, we will honor the work and person of Friedrich Kittler and will celebrate his intellectual legacy together with many outstanding scholars, performers, writers, technobodies--including disciples, students, colleagues, friends, companion spirits--of Friedrich Kittler.
