The 2016 CHAT Festival welcomes undergraduates working in the areas of digital arts and humanities to submit a proposal for short open screenings/lightning talks. The talks will take place on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016 from 1:00-4:00 pm as part of the Collaboration, Humanities, Arts, and Technology (CHAT) Festival. You may submit individually or as a group.
This year’s theme is Circuits. Talks might cover digital scholarship, new aesthetics, e-poetry, electronic publishing, new media, game studies, electronic arts, software studies, (social) networks, open source, surveillance, ethics, or any areas related to digital art, performance, or scholarship.
We seek presentations that take advantage of a participatory, open screen format: screenings of short films, performances supported by media, lightning talks/roundtables offering multiple perspectives. There will be a strict limit of 10-15 minutes for all individual presentations and 20 minutes for presentations by groups of more than three. Shorter pieces are also welcome and encouraged.
Please send proposals of no more and 250 words with relevant links to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 19th, 2016.
