The Center for Humanities, Arts, and TechnoScience (CHATS) presents:
Structure, Space and Transmigrations
April 15-17, 2005
University at Albany SUNY
Albany, New York
The State University of New York at Albany will host its third annual CHATS conference (formerly HumaniTech*), which focuses on examining the intersection between humanities, science and technology. The three-day conference will host an array of events, including academic papers and multi-media presentations, performance, exhibits, a plenary discussion, and keynote speaker (to be announced). We are particularly interested in panels and papers that take an interdisciplinary approach, and incorporate perspectives from a wide range of disciplines. Priority consideration will be given to those speaking to this year's theme, "Structure, Space and Transmigrations." Works from all fields and disciplines are welcome.
Possible panel and paper topics may include, but are not limited to:
"Structures" and the organization of thought, space
Writing and technology
Media studies and communication
Nanotechnology and culture
Notions of "discipline"
Derrida and the future of the humanities
Aesthetics and visual culture
Games, play and virtual realities
Technoscience and "technicity"
Additional time and space will be dedicated to hosting exhibits and/or performances relevant to the aforementioned theme.
