The Media Fields collective will hold its fourth graduate student conference, featuring a keynote talk by Professor Ricardo Dominguez entitled “Tactical Poetics, or How We Can Stop Worrying and Start Creating Disturbances (or learning from 80′s).”
When: Thursday, April 4, 2013, 9 a.m.
Where: McCune Conference Room, HSSB 6020, UCSB, Santa Barbara
Age limit: All ages
The conference panels are engaged with how the idea of “trespass” might be employed to energize, expand, negate, or flip the idea of access. We seek to explore the tactical, rhetorical, or strategic deployment of “trespass” in various media contexts, challenging notions of who is deemed a trespasser, and interrogating who is calling it trespass. The conference will also feature a screening of Ursula Biemann’s The Black Sea Files. Refreshments will be provided at all conference events.
Sponsored by the Dept. of Film and Media Studies, Graduate Student Association, Graduate Division, the MultiCultural Center, the Institute for Chicana and Chicano Studies, the Media Arts and Technology Program, the American Cultures and Global Contexts Center, the Dept. of English, the Dept. of the History of Art and Architecture, the Center for Information Technology and Society, and the IHC.
