= >> Media Art History 2011 - Rewire will increase the voltage and
ignite key debates within the internationally distributed network of
histories, which takes account of the questions surrounding
documentation and methodologies, materiality, and agency. Rewire aims
to illuminate the global phenomena of media art. Given Liverpool*s
historic role as a center of British industry and its leadership in
the sector of digital culture, we shall explore the relationship
between the industrial revolution and the information age with respect
to media art around the world. Considering the international scope of
the histories of media art, science and technology, Rewire is also
listed as part of the "McLuhan in Europe" programme, and will take place
concurrently with The Asia Triennial in Manchester and Abandon Normal
Devices, the North West's festival of new cinema and digital culture
which returns to Liverpool in September 2011.The reviewers especially
welcome proposals for presentations that resonate thematically with
these events.

We are looking for original research on:
* Media art history in relation to the biological, biomedical and
ecological sciences
* Colonial experiences and non-Western histories of media art, science
and technology
* How the field of science and technology studies (STS) can offer
useful models for new paradigms for art history
* Writing art history in a technologised and scientific culture,
including the documentation of media art and how it is changed in a
technologised and scientific culture
* Local histories and practices of media art
* Relations between the histories of media art and those of computing
and new technologies
* New paradigms and alternative discourses for media art and media art
history, such as, for example, craft, design, social media, or
cybernetics
* The relations between art, science, technology and industry, both
historically and now
* The heritage of British industry and computing and its global
contributions to media art
