Re-create 2015

The next MEDIA ART HISTORIES Conference will be held in MONTREAL, November 5th - 8th, 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.
