Call for Papers media-N spring edition, 2009

Theme: Foreignness and Translation in New Media.

Guest Editor for this special issue is Pat Badani, Assistant Professor, Integrated Media, at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois, U.S.A.

This issue will deal with the relationship between foreignness and translation in new media. We look forward to a discussion on the idea of foreignness seen as an investigation surrounding notions of travel, displacement and migration beyond those tied to the geographical movement of populations.

We are interested in the broad practice of translation in new media, in the use of an electronic system that mediates and enables the movement from one state to another. We also welcome submissions exploring the specific notion of cultural translation and migration in new media. That is to say, we are interested in a discussion on cultural markers that are displaced into foreign and extraneous locations, languages, supports and genres.

This issue expands the debate initiated during the Colloquium Foreigners in Art and Technology held at Espacio Fundación Telefónica in Buenos Aires, Argentina (August 12 & 13, 2008).

The scope of this issue is double: theoretical and practical. We welcome submissions on critical thinking and studio practices. Artists and theorists are invited to discuss their artwork and/or critical thinking in this area.
Please submit via email to: Pat Badani at pbadaniilstuedu

Deadline: February 14, 2009
