I received an email yesterday from Legier Biederman, Professor of Critical Theory & Contemporary Art in the Department of Art History at UCLA asking if I'd post a recent call of for papers for the fall 2006 issue of NMC media-N (Journal of the New Media Caucus). The theme of the issue is "Art in the Age of Technological Seduction". Both he and and Joshua Callaghan are guest editors for the issue. They're looking for a broad range of diverse personal/anecdotal/performative responses as well as longer essays.
Theme: Art in the Age of Technological Seduction
The "Art in the Age of Technological Seduction" issue of Media-N is a collaborative platform, a diverse questioning, re-considering and re-imaging of what, when and how new media arts practice is viewed by artists, practitioners, theorists, critics and historians working in the field today. We seek a broad range of contributions discussing the scope, values, and definitions of diverse new media arts practices and hope that this issue of Media-N will be a departure as much as much as an arrival. Four general questions have been posed by the members of the new media caucus as points of entry for an engaging, vibrant discussion.
The issue will be divided into two sections: The first section invites brief personal accounts and anecdotal responses addressing and/or expanding one of the four questions, and we encourage everyone to respond to this section, as we’d like to include as many responses as possible. The second section invites papers that address these questions in a more lengthy and detailed form.
