SEEING... VISION AND PERCEPTION IN A DIGITAL CULTURE
 
CHArt (Computers and the History of Art) 2008 Conference
 
Thursday 6 - Friday 7 November 2008 (central London venue to be confirmed)
 
This year's CHArt conference takes seeing as its theme and the associated questions of vision, perception, visibility and invisibility, blindness and insight - all in the context of our contemporary digital culture in which our eyes are assaulted by ever greater amounts of visual stimulus, while we are also increasingly being surveyed, on a continual basis.
 
What does it mean to see and be seen nowadays? How have advances in neuroscience or developments in technology altered our understanding of vision and perception? What kind of visual spaces do we now inhabit? What new kinds of visual experiences are now available? And what are now lost or no longer possible? How does the increasing digitalisation of media affect the experience of seeing? What and who might be rendered invisible by the processes of digital culture? What are our current digital culture's blindspots? What are its politics of seeing?
 
For the twenty-forth CHArt conference we are looking for papers that reflect upon these issues.  We welcome contributions from all sections of the CHArt community: art historians, artists, architects and architectural theorists and historians, curators, museum professionals, scientists, cultural and media theorists, archivists, technologists, software developers, educationalists, philosophers and any others who have a stake in the question of seeing in a digital culture. 
 
Please email a three to four hundred word synopsis of the proposed paper with brief CV of presenter/s by30 May 2008 to Hazel Gardiner (hazel.gardiner {AT} kcl.ac.uk).
