        Subject: CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies

Since 2001, the Renaissance Society of America annual meetings have featured panels on new technologies for scholarly research, publishing, and teaching. At the 2013 meeting (San Diego, 4-6 April 2013;  http://bit.ly/ICKxfF ), several panels will cover these new and emerging projects and methodologies. 

We seek proposals in and beyond the following areas: 
a) new technology and research (individual or group projects)
b) new technology and teaching (individual or group projects)
c) new technology and publication (e.g. from the vantage point of authors, traditional and non-traditional publishers)
We welcome proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and/or workshop presentations that focus on these issues and others. Your proposal should include a title, a 150-word abstract, and a one-paragraph CV.
Please send proposals before Wednesday 6 June 2012 to Michael Ullyot < ullyot {at} ucalgary.ca >
** Through the support of Iter, we are pleased to be able to offer travel subventions on a competitive basis to graduate students who present on these panels. Those wishing to be considered for a subvention should indicate this in their abstract submission. **
NB: All participants must be members of the RSA by August 2013 or they cannot be included in the program.

        Subject: Display: Consume: Respond - Digital Engagement with Art - 28th annual CHArt conference



Display: Consume: Respond - Digital Engagement with Art 

Thursday 15 - Friday 16 November 2012, Central London venue TBC

Since its foundation in 1985 CHArt has engaged in topical issues in Digital Art History. This year CHArt is looking at how new developments in information and communications technology affect the ways in which we engage with art. New forms of digital display or emerging modes of viewing art may have profound effects on both our understanding of the artwork itself (the way we consume it) and our ability or appetite for describing, curating and managing it (how we respond to it).

CHArt invites papers that examine emerging practice and where it impacts upon digital art practice, research and curation. Areas for consideration include:

 *   Control of authorship, ownership and access
 *   Collaboration and the interdisciplinary break-down
 *   Participation, quick response and interaction
 *   Consumption, re-use and mashup
 *   Mobile technology, apps and education
 *   Connections between art, interface design, usability and user experience
 *   Globalisation, agility, dissemination and big data
 *   Liquidity and permeability of digital culture

Contributions are welcome from all sections of the CHArt community: art historians, artists, architects and architectural theorists and historians, philosophers, curators, conservators, scientists, cultural and media theorists, archivists, technologists and educationalists.

Submissions should be in the form of a 300-400 word synopsis of the proposed paper with brief biographical information (no more than 200 words) of presenter/s, and should be emailed to chart at kcl.ac.uk<mailto:chart at kcl.ac.uk>  by Friday, June 1st 2012. Please note that submissions exceeding the stated word count will not be considered.

Postgraduate students are encouraged to submit a proposal. CHArt is able to offer assistance with the conference fees for up to four student delegates. Priority will be given to students whose papers are accepted for presentation. An application form and proof of university enrolment will be required.
