Why raise the issue of drawing again? With the proliferation and maturation of digital technologies, what is the use of the hand and the traces it makes on clay, stone, wood or paper? This symposium seeks to examine the technologies of drawing – their marks, lines, scratches, furrows, incisions, touches, dots and dashes, inscriptions, string lines, stains and blotches; pencilled, inked, chalked, brushed, illuminated or erased on diverse grounds.
We are seeking proposals for a collection of essays that will explore the many ways in which early modern understandings of the body created a new paradigm for the theoretical/artificial organization of human knowledge in the sciences, philosophy, logic, literature and the arts.
Abstracts should be 250 words in length. They must communicate a clear connection to the central theme of this collection. To be considered for publication, proposals should be sent to: email@example.com. The deadline for submitting abstracts is February 1, 2010.
