World Making: Art and Politics in Global Media
April 18-19, 2008
Hefter Center, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
The Center for International Education will hold its annual academic conference on April 18-19, 2008. "World Making: Art and Politics in Global Media" seeks to explore the way in which various art and media practices construct our understanding and experience of the world across literal and metaphoric places, screens, and frames. It explores the capacity of art and media practices - print, film, literature, television, architecture, internet culture, and digital art - to create distinctive senses of place, space and time and endeavors to think about social relations, aesthetic orders, language systems, and citizenship within and beyond the nation-state.
The Conference will be held at the Hefter Center at 3271 North Lake Drive (a short walk from UWM's campus). Click on Directions for a map. Please note that David Wilson's lecture on Friday 18 April (7:30 - 9:00 pm) will take place in Curtin Hall, room 175.
