"Discursive Treatments of Media and Materiality"

The Digital Assembly is proud to annouce its 4th Annual conference scheduled March 6-7, 2009 in Reitz 282. This interdisciplinary conference is being co-organized by Elise Takehana (English), Nicole Soukup (Digital Arts), Stephanie Boluk (English), and Jen Fiers (Visual Anthropology) and is focused on exploring what role materiality has within these various disciplines whether in the creative process or in criticism. In addition to academic panels, we are pleased to also include a screening of original film work on the 5th and an exhibit for digital, visual, and literary arts opening on the 6th. We are also happy to announce that Dr. Bill Seaman will be our keynote speaker.
