CFP: [Graduate] Digital Embodiment (6/15/08; 11/7/08)

The Digital Embodiment panel of the Brandeis University Graduate
Conference invites the submission of papers/presentations that examine
the body in light of digital media and culture. Where this year’s

panel intends to complicate the very status of the body by considering
its presence, significance, and coding in digital and virtual worlds.
