The 10th anniversary and sixth international conference on the 
histories of Media, Art Science and Technology

Hexagram, Concordia University and Université du Québec à Montréal in 
collaboration with Media@McGill and CIRMMT- McGill Montréal, Canada. 
5-8 November 2015

Re-Create 2015, the sixth international Conference on the Histories of

Media Art, Science and Technology will mark the 10th Anniversary of the

Re conference series. Re-Create 2015 is devoted to exploring what 
theories, methodologies and techniques can be used to understand past,

present and indeed, future paradigms of creative material practice 
involving technologies within research contexts from a historical and 
critical point of view.
 
The title Re-Create is an abbreviation for the term 
“research-creation”, part of a growing international movement which 
goes by many names: “practice-led research,” “research-led practice,” 
and “artistic-research,” among others.
 
While the link between research and practice seems to be a new horizon,

the media-based arts have long been at the intersection of the 
humanities, sciences, and engineering and present a critical site in 
which to take up the changing relationships between knowledge, power, 
and economy.
 
Research normally signifies modes of acquiring new knowledge that 
coherently and systematically advance a field and is grounded and 
validated by both social frameworks (peers) and existing bodies of 
knowledge. Similarly, research in conjunction with material practice 
demands that making be historically, theoretically and methodologically

framed and valorized.
 
Re-Create 2015 seeks to interrogate the historical entanglement of 
research and making within a wide and diverse set of international 
sites, disciplines and contexts: from non-institutional creative 
research initiatives driven by artists and designers in the streets, to

the labyrinths of industry funded research labs and universities. From

unknown or ignored histories of research-based practices in Latin 
America, Asia and Indigenous communities to government funded 
initiatives, the conference will thus critically explore the ongoing 
and productive tensions between theory, method and making in the 
histories of media art, science and technology.
 
Potential contributors to the conference should focus thematic panel 
sessions or individual papers on one of the following areas of 
concentration:
 
LAB STUDIES: Studies on how artists and designers have historically 
worked in industry, universities and collective, grass roots-based 
research environments
 
CURATORIAL ACTIONS AND PRACTICES: How have research paradigms 
historically entered into curatorial practices and how have they been 
framed, exhibited and articulated?
 
ANTI-INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH: Historical profiles of non-institutionally

based research-driven explorations.
 
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORKS: How have theoretical paradigms in media, art, 
science and technology historically evolved structuralism in the 1960s

or media studies to current work in affect theory, media archaeology, 
critical post-humanist approaches derived from STS, appropriation and 
remix aesthetics, feminist new materialism, queer and postcolonial 
studies, enactive and distributed cognition?
 
METHODOLOGIES: What can methodological tools emerging from the human 
and social sciences like ethnography, historiography, archaeology, 
genealogy and other qualitative techniques provide to the historical 
and critical positioning of practice?
 
INTERDISCIPLINARY INTERSECTIONS AND IMPACTS: Exploration of the 
formation and rise of interdisciplinary research fields (image science,

sound studies, science studies, sensory studies, environmental studies)

and their impact on the construction of media art histories.
 
DIGITAL HUMANITIES: What is the historical relationship between the 
digital humanities and the histories of media art, science and 
technology?
 
SITES: How historically have sites of research and practice in media 
art, science and technology evolved outside of the predominant spheres

of Europe and North America and what forms have they taken?
  
  
CONFERENCE PROGRAM
The conference program will include competitively selected 
peer-reviewed individual papers, panel presentations and poster 
sessions as well as a number of keynotes and invited speakers and a 
parallel satellite program of events with Hexagram partners including 
core cultural institutions in Montreal. In the interest of maintaining

a concentrated conference program, there will be a series of plenary 
sessions as well as accompanying poster sessions. Each of the plenaries

as well as the poster sessions will mix together scholars and 
practitioners representing different cultural perspectives. The 
conference will be held in English and French, with live translation.
 
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Re-Create 2015 welcomes contributions from researchers, artists, 
designers, scholars and technologists working across diverse 
disciplines, sites and practices. We particularly encourage scholars 
and creators from international contexts outside of Europe and North 
America.
 
ABOUT THE CONTEXT AND THE HOST
The conference will take place in Montreal hosted by Hexagram, the 
international network for media, art, design and digital culture 
(http://hexagram.ca). It is the largest network of its kind in Canada 
and one of the largest internationally dedicated to research-led 
creative practices. Ten years after the inaugural Re-Fresh conference 
at the Banff New Media Institute in 2005, the return of the conference

to Canada and specifically to Quebec, offers a pertinent context to 
address the evolution of research in the histories of media, art, 
science and technology 
(http://www.mediaarthistory.org/mah-conf-series). The conference will
be 
held across the two core Hexagram sites at Concordia University and the

Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). The venues are within walking 
distance from each other, centrally located in vibrant, downtown 
Montreal – the digital arts and culture capital of North America.
 
SUBMISSIONS
250 word abstracts of proposals, panel presentations and posters should

be submitted in either Text, RTF, Word or PDF formats. Texts can be 
submitted in French and in English. The DEADLINE for submissions is 
December 7, 2014. Submitters will be informed by mid February 2015.
