CALL FOR PRESENTERS
Cohosted by the Department of Arts, Culture, and Media, University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) and the Jackman Humanities Institute
Deadline for submission of abstracts: Monday, February 29, 2016
The Image/Interface symposium will explore the notion of technologies as physical objects—things, tools, apparatus, and the physically situated environment—for producing, receiving, and engaging with the increasing immateriality of imagery and visual cultures. The symposium foregrounds the materiality of technological practice while examining the reception, use, and sharing of cultural and political expression as well as the communication of embodied or situated knowledge and experiences.
We invite artists, creative practitioners, and scholars from across the fields of Media and Journalism Studies, Art History, and Visual Communication to present recent research and artistic work that critically reconsiders images in relation to:
Scholars from all stages of their careers (including PhD students) are welcome to apply. A honorarium at CARFAC rates will be offered to artists and creative practitioners.
The symposium will take place at JHI on Friday May 13 and at UTSC on Saturday May 14. If selected, each presenter will participate in a thematic panel and be asked to prepare a presentation of about 15-20 minutes. We ask that invitees attend the events on both days.
The Image/Interface symposium is part of the JHI 2015-2016 Program for the Arts. The program theme “Things that Matter” investigates how material culture carries “affective, social, cultural, historical, religious, economic, and political meanings and relation” and how things “provide insights into how people make sense of experience and come together as societies”.
