HASTAC II - second Annual HASTAC conference

This MAY 22-24, 2008, HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Sciences, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory) is having it's second annual conference, HASTAC II. The event will be held at UC Irvine and UC Los Angeles.

This year's theme is "techno-travels" and explores the multiple ways in which place, movement, borders, and identities are being renegotiated and remapped by new locative technologies. Featured projects will delve into mobility as a modality of knowledge and stake out new spaces for humanistic inquiry. How are border-crossings being re-conceptualized, experienced, and narrated in a world permeated by technologies of mobility? How is the geo-spatial web remapping physical geographies, location, and borderlands? How are digital cities interfacing with physical space? How do we move between virtual worlds? And what has become of sites of dwelling and stasis in a world saturated by techno-travels?

This year's conference literalizes and metaphorizes travel, as attendees will participate in sessions at Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego, and on the connecting corridors of Southern California.


Deadline: February 15, 2008

Registration will be open February 1, 2008.
