Do you live in a badlands? What constitutes a badlands? What are the
affective regimes that trigger badland associations? What kind of
space is a badlands? What kind of histories do badlands have? How can
we re-imagine badlands?
We are calling for papers, multimedia presentations and participants
to the conference
Making Badlands 1 - 2 December 2005
A conference hosted by Transformations and the Bundaberg Media
Research Group, Central Queensland University, Bundaberg, Queensland.
Keynote Speaker: Prof. Ross Gibson, New Media and Digital Culture,
Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, University of
Making Badlands is about the production of visual and temporal spaces
in both a real and imaginary sense, and the affective regimes that
inhabit them as places of danger, excitement or abhorrence. Following
Ross Gibson's provocative lead in his book Seven Versions of an
Australian Badland, we want to draw out the dimensions of making
badlands historically and in the contemporary sense, through archival
memory, institutional discourse, artistic expression and through
various media practices.
We are looking for papers on the theme 'Making Badlands'. We are also
looking for multimedia presentations on badland scenarios and themes.
How have badlands been made in the past? Can we resist and
rearticulate badland scenarios?
Abstracts for papers and presentations now extended to 31st August.
