CALL FOR PROPOSALS to host the 10th Anniversary International Conference
on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology: Re:2015.

The Media Art Histories Board invites applications to host the 10th
Anniversary 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 and will be held this fall in Riga. 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 2015
will have the opportunity to continue to build on the impressive history
of the conference series and celebrate its 10 year anniversary.

*Recognizing the increasing significance of media art for our culture,
the conference series on the Histories of Media Art will discuss the
history of media arts within the interdisciplinary and intercultural
contexts of the histories of the arts. Numerous individuals and
institutions collaborate to produce the international art history
conference series covering the media arts, the arts and technology,
art-science interaction, and the history of media as pertinent to the
contemporary arts.*
