Fall 2007 Colloquium Events!

SENSATIONAL! SENSING MEDIA ARTS THEORY AND PRACTICE
FRIDAYS at 2 PM
Kenilworth Square East
1925 E. Kenilworth Pl.,
4th Floor


The Colloquia in Conceptual Studies are intended as a forum in which to interrogate and initiate new models of media theory, history, and practice. This year, in focusing on intersensory perception, we will present some of the leading media artists, scholars, and critics shaping the forms and discourse of contemporary culture today. Presenters will explore avenues not only between the senses, but also between cinema and the other arts, between academic disciplines, and, most importantly, between theory, practice, and embodied experience. Appropriate to the topic, the colloquia will feature a number of presentations that explicitly engage an active dialogue between an artist and media theorist/historian.
