Abstract The Antikythera Mechanism is a mechanical astronomical instrument that was discovered in an ancient shipwreck at the beginning of the twentieth century, made about the second century B.C. It had several pointers showing the positions of the moon and sun in the zodiac, the approximate date according to a lunisolar calendar, several subsidiary dials showing calendrical phenomena, and also predictions of eclipses. The mechanism also had a display of the Moon’s phases: a small ball, half pale and half dark, rotating with the lunar synodic period and so showing the phases of the moon. The remains of the moon phase display include a fragmentary contrate gear. According to the reconstruction offered by Michael Wright, this gear is now pointing unintentionally in the wrong direction. In this paper we offer for the first time a detailed description of the remains of the moon phase mechanism. Based on this evidence, we argue that the extant contrate gear direction is the originally intended one, and we offer a conjectural explanation for its direction as an essential part of a representation of Aristarchus’s hypothesis that half moon phase is observably displaced from exact quadrature.

Kathleen Fitzpatrick, “Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy.”

A MITH Digital Dialogue Tuesday, October 21, 12:30-1:45 MITH Conference Room, McKeldin Library “Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy.” by Kathleen Fitzpatrick Much attention has been paid in recent years to the digital future of scholarship, and in particularly to the technological and infrastructural development necessary to new publishing structures. This talk will argue, however, that there is a set of social, intellectual, and institutional changes that will be a precondition for any such technological development to succeed, requiring scholars to think differently about the ways we write, the ways we publish, and the ways we review, in order to make any digital publishing future a reality. Kathleen Fitzpatrick is Associate Professor of English and Media Studies and chair of the Media Studies program at Pomona College in Claremont, California. She is the author of “The Anxiety of Obsolescence: The American Novel in the Age of Television” (Vanderbilt UP, 2006), which was selected as an “Outstanding Academic Title” for 2007 by CHOICE. She serves on the editorial board of the Pearson Custom Introduction to Literature database anthology, as well as of the Journal of e-Media Studies and the Journal of Transformative Works, and is a member of the executive committee of the MLA Discussion Group on Media and Literature. She is currently working on a book-length project, to be published by New York University Press, entitled “Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy.” Coming up @MITH 10/28: Matthew Kirschenbaum (English and MITH), “War (and) Games” View MITH’s complete Digital Dialogues schedule here: http://www.mith2.umd.edu/programs/mith_speakers_fall_2008.pdf All talks free and open to the public!
