  • inventive engagements with big data and distant reading techniques
  • experiments with interactivity, games, mods, and hacks
  • aural, video, film, or performance pieces
  • another format or method you’ve come up with

Please send 200-300-word proposals and a brief bio to by February 10th, 2013. (Notifications of acceptance will be sent very shortly after this date.) Proposals should indicate whether they wish to participate in the Research Slam or the Mediating the Nonhuman colloquium.
