updated: 
Thursday, January 5, 2017 - 3:01pm
Console-ing Passions
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 12, 2017

We are seeking to form a panel of researchers who study memes – meme makers, meme culture, meme formats, meme sites, etc. Our aim is to create a conversation about the possibilities and consequences of meme culture. Analyses related to the following are particularly relevant to the work of the coordinators and would likely best fit with the theme of possibility and consequence: feminist media studies, social media, affective/emotional labor, politics, trolling, and subcultures. However, proposals on additional, related topics are welcome. If interested in participating, please e-mail a 250-word abstract to Bree or Caroline by Thursday, January 12, 2017.

Drain
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

What is a diagram? How do maps, charts, plans, DNA sequencing, weather mapping, computer glitches and Internet cartography blur the boundaries between ‘art’ and ‘information’? Drain calls for artworks, thought experiments, essays and reviews that explore how data has been weaved into artworks and in the other direction, artworks into data. How are surveillance, spying, data collection explored by artists?  Does Google Earth problematize artists’ relationships with space and mapping? Is there an algorithmic aesthetics?  What is at the source of the renewed artistic interest in Cybernetics?
