Call for contributions

'Interpreting the Information Age': new avenues for research and display

November 24th - 26th 2014
Science Museum, London

Dear colleagues,

In autumn 2014, the Science Museum will open a ground-breaking new
permanent gallery, Information Age. The gallery will expose, examine and
celebrate how information and communication technologies have
transformed our lives over the last 200 years. To mark this launch, the
Museum is hosting a three day conference which will discuss how the
history and material culture of information can be made relevant for
today's audiences, and celebrate the participation projects which have
supported the gallery's development.

We would welcome contributions from peers across the sector and beyond,
to support this exciting conference. The details of the call can be
found at the web address below - please send all proposals to
research at sciencemuseum.ac.uk by Friday 28th March 2014.

        Subject: CFP MLA 2015: Artifactual Interpretation


*Artifactual Interpretation | MLA 2015, Vancouver | January 8-11*

This panel invites papers on methodologies for interpreting artifacts in
the humanities. How do scholars trained in the practice of textual
hermeneutics translate that expertise to material artifacts? Papers from
the digital humanities, media archaeology, critical making, and all related
fields are welcome.

Please send 300-word abstracts and 100-word bios to
gw2290 at columbia.edu http://mailto:gw2290@columbia.edu by March 15.

Best-
Grant
