Subject: e-Performance 2005 - reminder
Just a reminder that the deadline for proposals for papers and presentations for the e-Performance and Plug-ins conference is 01 June 2005. I would appreciate it if you could pass this on to your colleagues and students.
e-Performance and Plug-ins
A Mediatised Performance Conference
01 and 02 December 2005
The School of Media, Film & Theatre, University of New South Wales, Australia
The hybrid phenomena created by new media performance-makers traverse a range of academic disciplines and approaches from philosophical enquiry into the ontology of liveness to the very technical and logistical questions of performance in a mediatised environment under diverse conditions of actualisation.
Some performance theorists have questioned the notion of liveness by asking 'How is the liveness of the performance changed when it occurs within the spaces of technology?' Others have discussed the phenomenon of Internet use as 'performance on-line' and have used terms commonly found in new media discourses, such as 'posthuman', 'virtual bodies', 'embodiment' and 'telepresence'. Yet others draw upon Lacanian film theory in their analysis.
This symposium will address the range of these extant approaches and seek new discourses with which to talk about this emergent area of study. It is intended as a forum for cross- and multi-disciplinary investigations of issues around media/technology-based performance. Paralleling the diversity and range of artistic and theoretical approaches to media-based performance, conference contributors will present multi-modally, including live video interventions by speakers outside Australia, live performances, as well as presentations of scholarly papers and practice-led research.
Areas of enquiry
In developing their submissions, delegates are asked to address one or more of the following areas of enquiry:
What terminology is appropriate to the discussion of mediatised performance? Is the traditional language of performance studies, terms such as 'dramaturgy' or 'ritual', helpful in discussing media/technology-based performance? Or are information-technology terms such as 'interface' and 'interactivity' more useful?
What are the key challenges arising in collaborations between theorists from different disciplines when discussing live performance in a mediated matrix?
What issues, for both critic and practitioner, lie at the nexus of theory and practice in digital performance?
What are the epistemological differences between a virtual performance in a virtual venue (on the Internet and/or computer) and a new media 'live' performance in a theatre?
Where exactly would a history of mediatised performance begin? What would that history cover, and what would it privilege? What is the future for mediatised performance?
Abstracts and proposals are invited in the following forms:
1. Scholarly Paper
A paper of 20 minutes duration, with time then allocated for questions and discussions (10 minutes). Papers should address an aspect of the conference's areas of enquiry as described above. Abstracts to be sent by 01 June 2005. (Response by 15 July 2005)
2. Presentation of Practice-Led Research
Artist/scholars are invited to submit proposals for a 20-minute theoretical discussion of their own art/performance works through documentation in relation to any of the conference's areas of enquiry. Abstracts to be sent by 01 June 2005. (Response by 15 July 2005)
Please submit the following:
- An abstract (approx. 300 words) for Categories 1 and 2
- Your name, title, and professional affiliation
- A one-paragraph biography (no more than 100 words) for publication in the conference program
