<nettime-ann> CFP: 2007 Global Fusion conference, St. Louis, USA
Call for Participation: 2007 Global Fusion Conference: September
7-9, St Louis, USA
Theme: Contested Intersections: publics, movements, institutions, the
interface between media research, media arts, media industry
professions and media activism.
ANJALI MONTEIRO will be the Main Keynote Speaker. Dr Monteiro is an
award-winning documentary film-maker and university professor of
media studies at the Centre for Media and Cultural Studies, Tata
Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. Her keynote address will be
“Spaces for Dialogue - Rethinking Critical Media Praxis in India,” or
what it means for 'alternative' media praxis to engage with the new
sites of contestation that have emerged in the wake of new media and
communication technologies in an India that is neo-liberal, market-
oriented and rapidly globalizing.
PAUL MILLER, aka DJ Spooky, will be the second Keynote Speaker. His
award-winning Rhythm Science (MIT Press) was named among the books of
the year by The Guardian (UK). Miller will address how "sound" acts
as an invisible theater where the distinctions between sound art,
information, and digital production methods are viewed as tools for
the creative spirit of the artist.
Plenary round-tables will address video/film production, news and
journalism, and advertising from these perspectives, all with an eye
to how we teach communication. As usual, an international focus will
be evident. Proposals for papers are encouraged to focus within this
area, but may be on any communication-related topic.
Paper proposals are due by April 30 to John Downing at
email@example.com. Abstracts of up to 250 words; plus name(s),
affiliations, email addresses and telephone number(s) of author(s).
More information will be posted at intervals on the Southern Illinois
University, Global Media Research Center site: www.gmrc.siu.edu
