CFP: Alternative Beginnings – Towards an-Other history of immersive arts and technologies, College Art Association Annual Conference 2018

From the CFP:

This panel seeks to explore alternative pathways to contextualize our current obsession with virtual environments and to question our conceptions of what counts as immersive technologies. Bringing together recent insights by media archaeologists (Parikka and Huhtamo, 2011) and decolonial thinkers (Mignolo, 2011) we seek presentations that explore suppressed, neglected and forgotten histories, alternative conceptualizations of immersive technologies that break with the Eurocentric canon as well as contemporary expressions that address such gaps through new media practices.
