[UPDATE] Originality (4/3/2016)

updated:

NANO: New American Notes Online

DEADLINE EXTENDED

Please consider submitting to Originality in a Digital Culture, a special issue of NANO: New American Notes Online.

Originality as an ideal has occupied an august position in American cultural history, from Emerson's injunction to "[N]ever imitate" to Apple's "Think different" campaign. Yet the very proliferation of coffee mugs, bumper stickers, fridge magnets, and tablet cases bearing Emerson's words and Apple's slogan shows that not only objects but even the ideas they bear can be disseminated en masse. And in a digital culture in which information can be shared more quickly, easily, and cheaply every day, how do we—scholars, teachers, critics, readers—conceive of originality and theorize its value?

The International Conference on the Arts in Society is a platform for interrogation of the nature of the arts and arts practices. Its aim is to create an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of the arts in society. The conference is a place for critical engagement, examination, and experimentation of ideas that connect the arts to their contexts in the world–on stage, in studios and theaters, in classrooms, in museums and galleries, on the streets, and in communities.

NB: This is an early and *non-guaranteed* Irish Forum panel, which means that the MLA will make a final decision as to whether it runs in April 2016.
