<nettime-ann> Next MEDIA ART HISTORIES Conference will be held in MONTREAL, November 2015

=== Next MEDIA ART HISTORIES Conference 2015 in MONTREAL ! ===

We are pleased to officially announce that the next MEDIA ART HISTORIES
Conference will be held in MONTREAL, November 2015.

"RE-CREATE: Theories, Methods and Practices of Research and Creation in
the Histories of Media Arts and Sciences" will address the central
question of what theories, methodologies and techniques can be used to
understand past, present and indeed, future paradigms of creative
material practice involving technologies within research contexts from a
historical and critical point of view. This is a timely question for the
MAH conferences as the issue of how material based practices within
technical culture create new knowledge has been explicit and central to
the historical roots of media art, design, science and technology.

After Riga 2013 this fall, Liverpool 2011, Melbourne 2009, Berlin 2007
and Banff 2005, the Media Art Histories board is pleased to grant the
10th Anniversary conference to Montreal. RE-CREATE will be hosted by the
Hexagram Centre for Research-Creation in Media Art and Technology at
Concordia University and the UQAM (Università du QuÃbec à MontrÃal) in
collaboration with McGill University (Department of Art History and
Communication Studies; Media@McGill; * CIRMMT-Center for
Interdisciplinary Research in Music and Media Technology).

The Conference Chairs are Chris SALTER with Co-Chair Gisele TRUDEL.

After an international call for proposals the Media Art Histories
Steering Committee/Conference Series Board received six high quality
proposals. The decision was made by Sean CUBITT (Goldsmith, London),
Oliver GRAU (Danube Univ.), Linda HENDERSON (Univ. Texas, Austin), Erkki
HUHTAMO (UCLA), Machiko KUSAHARA (Waseda Univ., Tokyo), Douglas KAHN
(UNSW, Sydney), Martin KEMP (Oxford), Tim LENOIR (Duke Univ.), Gunalan
NADARAJAN (Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor) and Paul THOMAS (UNSW,
