Digital Art and Culture '09 Conference
After Media: Embodiment and Context

Sex and Sexuality

This theme brings together artists and researchers interested in
exploring the interconnections of sexuality, sexual acts and digital
media: the ways in which digital media shapes and channels sexual
desires and identifications, as well as the kinds of sexual dynamics
that become attached to encounters with and though media technologies.
Possible directions range from (but are not limited to) the aesthetics
of sex art to online cultures of sexuality, porn distribution, sexual
politics, and sensuous intimacies with new technologies.

Theme leaders:
Jordan Crandall, UCSD, Visual Arts Department
Susanna Paasonen, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies

Deadline for abstracts: May 1, 2009

DAC09 Submission and Review will take place entirely online, in a
two-stage selection and review process - abstracts of proposed papers
will be submitted in the first round, then, pending selection, full
papers. Aspiring presenters will lodge a proposal abstract, identifying
chosen theme, by May 1. Please note that you must associate each
submission with a conference Theme.

Reviewers will assess abstracts and subsequently, invitations to submit
papers will be sent by email. Papers deadline will be June 1, 2009. A
second round review process will then occur. Notification of accepted
paper will be sent by email by September 1, and final formatted papers
will be due by October 1 for compilation into the DAC09 Proceedings
which will be distributed at the conference
