CALL FOR PROPOSALS to host the 7th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology: Re:2017

The Media Art Histories Board invites applications to host the 7th
International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology.

The international conference series, which was inaugurated in 2005
in Banff, Canada, has since been held in several international venues around the globe including Berlin in 2007, Melbourne 2009, Liverpool 2011, Riga 2013 and will be held this fall in Montreal. The conference series aims to engage the growing community of scholars from a range of disciplines including art history, contemporary art practice, art theory, history of science, history of technology, science and technology studies, media studies, image science, visual studies, philosophy, cultural studies, anthropology, architecture theory, sound studies, computer science among others to develop and share new research and scholarship in the intersecting fields of the histories of media art, science and technology. The host of the next conference in 2017 will have the opportunity to continue to build on the impressive history of the conference series.
