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 – Bioethics – Notions of “discipline” – Derrida and the future of the humanities – Aesthetics and visual culture – Games, play and virtual realities – Performance – Technoscience and “technicity”

Additional time and space will be dedicated to hosting exhibits and/or performances relevant to the aforementioned theme.

Email paper, panel or exhibit abstracts of 250-300 words by Tuesday, February 23, 2005 to [email protected].
