I've always appreciated this aspect -- 'creativity' -- of Greg Ulmer's work
_Teletheory_ [out of print?] especially, and have used bits of it with
success, in working w/ undergrads). Anyway, here is a resonant CFP:

Call for Papers for Angelaki special issue on "Creativity"
Co-editors Felicity J. Colman (University of Melbourne) and
Charles J. Stivale (Wayne State University)
Title "Creative Philosophy: Theory and Praxis"
This Angelaki issue on "Creativity" seeks essays with collaborative,
hybrid, and polyvocal research, linkages, and models of creativity in
philosophical thought and artistic practices (e.g. literature, architecture,
music, visual arts, new media, cinema). The thematic of creativity asks
how creative interfaces operate, what forms of generic skills and
community resources inform contemporary relations between ideas and
creative expression and representation, and how and where creativity is
Examples of creative pursuits might be located through modernist
activities of the twentieth century and those subsequent modifications and
modulations of praxis and thought. Also of interest are the interactivities of
the early twenty-first century that attest to divergent sets of aesthetic and
political logics. The issue seeks essays that provoke and examine
questions concerning the modes of interface and systems of logic that
creative and expressive territories of aesthetics, politics, and
representation engage; forms of learned cognitive processes that
currently are emerging and how these affect creativity; the types of social
outcomes that result from specific logics of practice and/or theory.
These intersections between creativity, thought and expression are but a
few of the directions in which the issue editors encourage potential
contributors to develop essays for consideration for this Angelaki issue.
