CALL FOR PAPERS

ARTICLE ABSTRACT DEADLINE EXTENSION - AUGUST 6TH 2002

BRIDGES II: COLLABORATION, COMMUNICATION, CONVERGENCE
October 4-6, 2002

The Banff Centre, Banff New Media Institute, & The University of Calgary in
collaboration with the Annenberg Center for Communication at the University
of Southern California.

+ + + 

We would like to inform you that the call for paper proposal's and
submissions to the upcoming BRIDGES Consortium event BRIDGES II has been
extended until Tuesday, August 6th. We like to thank those who have
submitted abstracts already, however we would like to open up the call for
another two weeks in order for the symposium pool to be as wide, deep and
conceptually rigorous as it can be. We encourage you to submit a 300wd,
article abstract for BRIDGES II as the event intends to punch strong with
the term 'collaboration,' fast with the term 'new media,' and graceful with
the term 'research.' 

Conference information can be found below. Guidelines for article abstract
submission are attached in Microsoft Word document. The extended deadline
for submission is Tuesday, August the 6th. Please pass this call onto peers
and colleagues that would be interested and fit within the scope of this
event.

The first BRIDGES Consortium was held in 2001 in Los Angeles at the
Annenberg Center at the University of Southern California. It brought
together top experts from education, research and funding institutions and
the private sector, as well as independent artists, technologists, and
scientists, to explore interdisciplinary collaboration between art, science
and technology. This year, it is the turn of the Banff New Media Institute
(BNMI) to welcome this international forum.

The BRIDGES Consortium works from the belief that the great challenge of
convergence is not technology, but communication between people. It
pinpoints collaboration as a skill to be identified, studied, and learned
proposing practical strategies for its inclusion as a vital component in
education, creation and research. It also seeks to identify the best methods
and practices, amplifying networks in order to provide a means of exchange
and for those engaged in the reality of collaborative research. 

The differences in work styles, priorities, language usage and invention,
communication, educational principles, institutional frameworks, and
personal temperaments and beliefs have the potential within a production
setting to become either obstacles or stimulants of effective collaboration.
Project development and research using ever-more complex technology comes to
involve social scientists, research scientists and artists to develop a more
specialized skill sets and almost 'requires' collaboration between multiple
disciplines and practices.

The purpose of the First Summit was to establish the need for the BRIDGES
forum and its discursive role in the broader landscape of art, science,
technology and culture. At Banff, we will expand the multi-disciplinary
focus to include social sciences and humanities researchers who are partners
in culture and science collaboration. The summit will result in an on-line
document accessible for use by anyone working in the areas of cultural
production, science and technology, and in active research communities
engaged in the building of active multi-disciplinary networks.

Description. "One Year Into the Art Strike." This being January 1991, 
the Persian Gulf War loomed large in the minds of contributors, and 
was extensively reflected in the works that appeared in this issue. 
The works range from Steve Perkin's opening text 'Desert Storm', to 
graphics by Eleutheros Productions, and on to a report on the 
activities of the Aggressive School of Cultural Workers that centered 
around their anti-Gulf-War art exibit 'Lies in the Sand' held in Iowa 
City that month. Less particular to that moment, but no less apt, was 
the art-satyrical text 'State of the Art for Today's Artist' by the 
Bureau of Control and its accompanying and amusing comic strip. 
(Additional works of comic detournement appeared in this issue as 
well, the form being all the rage at that moment.) Al Ackerman, whose 
welcome deflation of the proceedings through humor were always 
eagerly absorbed by our readership, contributed 'The Magic of Bigamy 
(An Alternative to Art Strike)'. As we previously warned, Art Strike 
1990-1993 makes appearances in other works, and in letters and 
commentary that make up this issue.

Contributors include. H. R. Fricker, Stephen Perkins, Eleutheros 
Productions, Buzz Art, Don Baker/Jeff Brice, Ralph Johnson, Semiotic 
Liberation Front, The Tape-beatles, Gen Ken Montgomery, Black Eye, 
Bureau of Control, Cracker Jack Kid, C Schneck, Al Ackerman, Thomas 
Wiloch, John Marriot, David Tiffen, Mark Pawson, Ben Allen

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as a 
repository for a complete collection of Photostatic Magazine, 
Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as related titles) in electronic 
form. We are posting issues in PDF format, at more or less regular 
intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a mirror image in 
time of the original series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, 
is finally posted in several year's time, then this electronic 
archive will be complete.

Historical Materialism seeks to reappropriate and refine the classical
Marxist tradition for emancipatory purposes. It promotes a genuine and open
dialogue between individuals working in different traditions of Marxism and
encourages an interdisciplinary, international debate between researchers
and academics. Historical Materialism sees itself as encouraging a new
generation of Marxist writers and researchers. Future issues will focus on
Africa, fantasy, the visual arts, Empire, anticapitalism, film, dialectics,
the American working class, modes of production, sexuality and postcolonial
fascism.

Why Historical Materialism now?
It is thirteen years since the implosion of 'historical communism' and the
triumphal proclamation of capitalism as the natural terminus of world
history. As neo-liberal strategies continue their work of global
accumulation and exploitation, the invincibility of the world market has
been assumed by all sides of the political spectrum. But while this new
global order is thus marked by an unprecedented unity of appearance, in
reality sharp differences and deepening inequalities persist, both between
states and within societies. For the world today is increasingly driven by
the political, economic and social contradictions which capitalist
development brings in its wake. To those on the margins of the world
economy, the effects of being left out are devastating: poverty, starvation
and civil war are widespread. Meanwhile in the advanced countries, the
pursuit of global competition for investment and the related internal
restructuring of the state have discredited even moderate Keynesian policies
and social reformism. Thus, despite the production of ever greater surplus
wealth, the numbers of those in poverty keep growing; and the vast majority
remain excluded from any meaningful power. And yet against this backdrop,
capitalism itself has been absolved of responsibility, and there has been a
retreat from any fundamental critique. One of the most effective arguments
in the hands of political and economic elates in enforcing domestically
unpopular policies is that international, 'globalising' capitalism has
become our 'fate' in a qualitatively new sense. It is this disabling eclipse
of social imagination, manifested in the almost universal assumption of a
continuing capitalist future that Historical Materialism seeks to counter.

Theoretical orientation
Motivated by a vision of society free of exploitation and domination, the
journal sets out from the conviction that classical Marxism provides the
richest framework for analysing the making and unmaking of social phenomena.
Its aim is to build upon that tradition, drawing on and debating the diverse
contributions of its various strands. We believe that the explanatory power
of classical Marxism derives above all from two key elements. The first of
these elements is the epistemology of the Theses on Feuerbach, especially
its unity of theory and practice. Marx famously said that 'philosophers have
only interpreted the world, the point is to change it'. In other words, the
most incisive interpretations of the world are those which are harnessed to
practical efforts to transform it. The second key element is Marxism's
recognition of the centrality of class relations and social struggle which
result from historically specific modes of surplus appropriation and
domination. The key to understanding history lies in relating the systemic
forces inherent in capitalist and other class societies, with the
experiences of their agents. From this dialectical antagonism of subject and
object arises historical change.
Aware of the deformations and instrumentalisations of Marxism, we believe
that Marx's dictum in the Eighteenth Brumaire that 'the tradition of all the
dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living' must
be critically applied to Marxism itself as an intellectual and political
tradition. Far from being a theoretical monolith, Marxism is necessarily an
object of continuing debate, a debate fuelled by the ever-changing
subjective experiences of people in differing social contexts, and
contingent on the objective logic of production and reproduction as embedded
in specific social relations. We propose that the regeneration of classical
Marxism requires the recovery of human agency, understood both in its
objectified existence which reproduces dominant social relations, and in its
disruptive, and potentially emancipator forms.

Working principles
The journal maintains two fundamental working principles:

Interdisciplinarity
When the study of natural and social life is fragmented into discrete
disciplines, the potential for comprehending the shape of the whole is
weakened. This modern division of intellectual labour arose with the
emergence of capitalism and its concomitant differentiation of society.
Society is not, however, composed of different spheres of action, separately
pursuing their own self-reproductive logics. Rather, one relation dominates
and takes an exploitative form in class societies - that 'twofold relation'
through which people organise their collective interaction with the natural
world in order to transform it according to their needs: the relation of
production. The historically specific forms of this relation affect all
dimensions of social life, which have in the modern period become
differentiated in new ways. The task must be to take self-reflexive account
of these historical differentiations without naturalising and reifying their
separation and content. It is therefore necessary to continue the critique
of ideology and oppose the compartmentalisation of knowledge. Historical
Materialism will encourage the systematic integration and
cross-fertilisation of various fields of knowledge in concrete analyses.

Marxist pluralism
Historical Materialism will seek to create a forum for debate between those
working in different Marxist traditions. The journal will also engage with
non-Marxist contributions which constructively criticise Marxist theorems
and attempt alternative explanations of social phenomena. The journal is not
aligned with any particular tendency or party and aims to ensure that
political differences are neither simply repressed nor asserted a priori,
but can emerge as a result of substantive theoretical enquiry.


'The birth of Historical Materialism was a major event not only because it
provides a unique forum for non-sectarian Marxist debate but also because it
represents a change in the wind a really promising sign of socialist
renewal.'
- - Ellen Meiksins Wood

'Historical Materialism provides exactly what is needed today: a Marxist
antidote to postmodern and similar fashions. It is one of the few journals
in English actually turned towards the future - one of the few journals in
which a progressive theorist can publish without secretly feeling ashamed!'
- - Slavoj Zizek

'Historical Materialism is already among the most highly regarded journals
in Marxian theory published in any language. In an age of increasing
specialization it is committed to high quality articles from across a broad
range of disciplines. If a resurgence of Marxian thinking occurs in the
twenty-first century Historical Materialism will deserve a good part of the
credit.'
- - Tony Smith


Research agenda
The journal encourages research into four broad and, we stress,
non-exclusive areas.
Firstly, at the very heart of the Marxist tradition is the theorisation of
history, class struggle and revolution. Within the wider ambit of the
Marxist theory of social change, we invite contributions of a historical and
theoretical nature which investigate the nexus between class conflict, and
social and political movements. Furthermore we encourage studies which
address Marxist conceptualisations of revolution.
Secondly, the development of historical materialism involves an attempt to
fathom and revitalise the elements which remain fundamental in the Marxist
tradition. We therefore welcome studies which survey recent attempts to
re-appropriate and redefine Marxism for contemporary social science. Areas
which could be covered within this context include: the clarification of
core concepts and theorems such as work on variations in Marxist method and
epistemology, as well as studies on the history and historiography of
Marxism itself.
The third area of study is provided by the uneven and contradictory
universalisation of capitalism, and its international political economy.
Here we envisage debate on the geographical expansion of capitalism, its
incorporation of other social structures, and the politics of resistance to
these processes. We invite work on the historical relationship between the
state and the economy, and that between fragmented political authority and
the world market. The complexity of the historical genesis of capitalist
modernity requires that the arguably neglected themes of war/geopolitics,
diplomacy, trade, migration, strategies of exploitation, conjunctures of
crisis, questions of globalisation, and the latest round of neoliberal
orthodoxy must be within the scope of Marxist scholarship. Furthermore, we
welcome single country or area studies which combine the explanation of
conjunctural contexts within the perspective of long-term economic, social
and political developments.
In the fourth area we aim to confront the challenges of post-Marxist
critique, the claim that the allegedly totalising and class-reductionist
premises of Marxism hinder comprehension of important questions concerning
gender, racism, ecology, culture and aesthetics. We recognise the need for
constructive engagement with these issues and encourage studies into their
historical constitution, and their relation to the reproduction of
capitalist society as a whole. Space will also be provided for the critical
exploration and development of the classical themes of ideology and
consciousness in which discussion of the above issues were prefigured.

Editorial policy
Historical Materialism aims to be neither a traditional academic journal
locked into the career structure of a particular discipline, nor a platform
for the exhibition of a particular 'line' on the intellectual Left by the
already established. We welcome submission of work by graduate students and
younger researchers.
The journal also intends to maintain a broad international awareness and
will actively encourage contributions from a non-anglophone public. These
could take the form of introducing country-specific Marxist debates and
issues to a primarily English-speaking readership, or the presentation or
discussion of major new or as yet untranslated publications.
Operating from these principles, the journal hopes to display the ongoing
power and commitment of historical materialism - both as a method of
analysis capable of providing explanation adequate to the world we inhabit,
and as an inspiration to human potential and practical action.


'Historical Materialism demonstrates that Marxist analysis is not merely
alive, but thriving again as the contradictions of globalisation generate
economic, social and cultural tensions which mainstream analysis cannot
account for.'
- - John Weeks

'Historical Materialism is an excellent journal providing a unique forum for
serious intellectual work about every aspect of Marxism. The quality of the
first issues surpassed expectations. The journal is essential reading for
anyone with an interest in this field.'
- - Sean Sayers

Subject: HELP :: F[RI]CTION ::

Hi nettime!,

my name is Spike Hibberd and am currently completing my 
honours year at Monash University in Visual Communication. 

For my project I have started a discourse which is in the progress of terning into a dense textural web. Through my knowledge of the codex structure the user will be able to navigate through this labrynth, choosing subject, theme and topic of text.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I am posting this message in order to find more collaborators
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

To give a quick idea of the project: What is being created is a piece of hypertext that's non-linear. Instead of it being in the digital medium its in the print, aiming to be fully interactive. 
Role playing is being experimented with and navigational systems explored. I think what I can add to this form of literature is a sense of design and a discourse that is varying in content and theme.

Thankyou to those of who have given time already. 
If you are interested in collaborating pls email me asap:
