Media Art History 2011 - Rewire

Fourth International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science 
and Technology
Liverpool, 28th September - 1st October 2011
Call For Papers now open - Deadline Monday, January 31st 2011

http://www.mediaarthistory.org

Host: FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), Liverpool
In collaboration with academic partners: Liverpool John Moores 
University, CRUMB at the University of Sunderland, the Universities of 
the West of Scotland and Lancaster, and the Database of Virtual Art at 
the Dept. for Image Science, Danube University Krems.

Following the success of Media Art History 2005 Re:fresh in Banff, Media 
Art History 2007 Re:place in Berlin and Media Art History 2009 Re:live 
in Melbourne, Media Art History 2011 Rewire will host three days of 
keynotes, panels and poster sessions.

Media Art History 2011 Rewire will increase the voltage and ignite key 
debates within the internationally distributed network of histories, 
which takes account of the questions surrounding documentation and 
methodologies, materiality, and agency. Rewire aims to up the current to 
illuminate the British contribution to media art, and by looking at our 
industrial heritage and contribution to the history of computing 
technologies themselves, we will open the discussion to how these 
contributions are manifested internationally. Considering the 
International scope of the histories of media art, science and 
technology, Rewire is also listed as part of the "McLuhan in Europe" 
programme, and will take place concurrently with The Asia Triennial in 
Manchester and Abandon Normal Devices, the North West's festival of new 
cinema and digital culture which returns to Liverpool in September 2011. 
The reviewers especially welcome proposals for presentations that 
resonate thematically with these events.

We are looking for original research on:

     * The relations between art, science, technology and industry, both 
historically and now
     * New paradigms and alternative discourses for media art and media 
art history, such as, for example, craft, design, social media, or 
cybernetics
     * Local histories and practices of media art, including (but not 
limited to) Britain
     * Colonial experiences and non-Western histories of media art, 
science and technology
     * Media art history in relation to the biological, biomedical and 
ecological sciences
     * Relations between the histories of media art and those of 
computing and new technologies
     * Writing art history in a technologised and scientific culture, 
including the documentation of media art and how it is changed in a 
technologised and scientific culture
     * How the field of science and technology studies (STS) can offer 
useful models for new paradigms for art history

General papers will be accepted. The conference will be delivered in a 
range of formats, from panel discussions to Pecha Kucha sessions and 
video poster presentations, as well as a small number of invited 
speakers. The programme will include competitively selected, 
peer-reviewed individual papers, panel presentations, and poster 
sessions, as well as a small number of invited speakers. Keynote 
Lectures, by internationally renowned, outstanding theoreticians and 
artists, will deliberate on the central themes of the conference and 
will include the Roy Stringer Memorial Lecture, held annually by FACT in 
memory of Roy Stringer, an early pioneer of digital media, champion of 
multimedia industries in the North West and Liverpool, and former Chair 
of the Board at FACT. The conference will also include dedicated forum 
sessions for participants to engage in more open-ended discussion and 
debate on relevant issues and questions.
