Media-N CFP – No Template: Art and the Technicity of Race

UPDATED Deadline for submission of abstracts: July 31, 2020 A decade ago, Beth Coleman and Wendy Hui Kyong Chun introduced the concept of race and/as technology.* Turning to Heidegger’s notion of techne as prosthesis or skill, Coleman and Chun imagine race itself as a technology that can be leveraged, a tool for navigating systems of power. This distances race from its mythological status as biological fact, creating a critical framework that returns historical agency to the individual and helps us understand how race and ethnicity function in the visual–and technological–world. Recently, the concept has received renewed attention as the intersections…

Call For Papers: Video Game Art Reader – Issue 4 – Deadline 3/20/20

Video Game Art Reader Issue 4 Call for Papers Video Game Art Reader is accepting submissions through March 20th! Issue 4 Theme: OVERCLOCKING In computing, overclocking refers to the common practice of increasing the clock rate of a computer to exceed that certified by the manufacturer. While the concept is seductive—buy the slower, lower-cost central processing unit (CPU), accelerate the clock speed, and presto! you have a cheap, high-end processor—overclocking may destroy your CPU, motherboard, and system memory, or irreparably corrupt your hard drive (voiding your warranty being the least of your problems). This issue of the Video Game Art…
