Interface 2014: Transmediating Culture
Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art & Culture Carleton University, Ottawa ON May 2-3, 2014 interface2014.wordpress.com

The transmediation of a work is never a simple duplication. In My Mother Was a Computer (2005), Katherine Hayles argues that the transformation of a work into a new medium is a kind of translation, and therefore an interpretation. This act of translation has significant consequences for our understanding of a work. While the accessibility of new digital media has elevated concerns about the implications and applications of transmediation across disciplines in the arts, its relevance pertains not only to digital, but to material works as well; for example, the relocation of art into new contexts, adaptation, and parody. This year’s conference aims to explore the impact of transmediation on both material and digital works.

We invite submissions on a broad range of topics that explore questions of transmediation and the consequences of this process for narrative, representation, and interpretation.

Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Adaption (animated, film, game, graphic, literary, mobile, etc.) - Appropriation
- Critical artistic works
- Cross-platform media franchises
- Digital editions
- Education and transmediation
- Fan art
- New media art
- Parody
- Transmedia storytelling and other transmedia projects

Paper proposal submissions should be sent to interface.conference2014@gmail.com and contain information such as your name, status, institutional affiliation, paper title, and brief biography (100 words). Your attached abstract must be in .doc .docx or .pdf format and should include:
• Paper title
• Abstract (250-300 words)
• 3-5 keywords
• Please ensure to remove all identifying information from document properties

DEADLINE: 17 March 2014

Interface 2014 is part of an annual series of graduate student-run conferences presented by the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) at Carleton University. ICSLAC is an interdisciplinary cultural studies department that houses the PhD in Cultural Mediations and collaborative MA in Digital Humanities programs.
