Approaches and pathways in Arts, Design and Media research- 7th July 2017

Call for proposals:

Research in Arts, Design and Media is highly diverse, often redefining parameters and pushing
boundaries. Whether dealing with more established approaches, theoretical ideas or explicitly
experimenting with new methods it inevitably involves a degree of mess.
Beyond Borders? is a one-day colloquium that traverses disciplinary boundaries to explore the
spaces, places and territories that exist above and below, amidst and with/out borders. It seeks
to make visible and engage with the pathways, roots and routes that enable us to immerse in
Arts, Design and Media research.
We invite workshops, happenings and presentations that redefine the parameters of the
traditional paper format, reflecting your research, methodologies, ways of articulation and
everything in between …

Are some of these approaches and pathways favoured more than others? Do institutional or
other boundaries affect/effect your research? Can questioning the familiar elicit the unfamiliar?
Does defining our research confine your research? How can addressing these sorts of
questions provide possibilities for the Arts, Design, Media and Humanities more broadly?
Please submit proposals on one side of A4 comprising text and visual/other sources where
appropriate that includes:

-­‐ How your proposal resonates with the conference themes
-­‐ The form that your proposed idea will take (i.e. workshops, happenings, presentations
and beyond)
-­‐ Any space or technical requirements

Please email your proposals to

DEADLINE: Friday 5th May 2017
