Instructional/Information Technology in CUNY: Opening Access
The escalating costs of higher education—both tuition and the collateral expenses of textbooks and course materials—have widespread effects. With the announcement of the Excelsior Scholarship and new funding to develop Open Educational Resources, CUNY is poised to ease financial barriers to college for even more students than we already serve. And yet “access” to higher education is a complex issue that extends far beyond the mere costs of attendance to adequately meeting student needs. “Access” includes ADA compliance, access to course materials and devices used for digital materials, Internet access, access to campus spaces and services, access to faculty and community, and more. CUNY’s 16th Annual IT Conference will examine the complex and evolving relationship between technology and manifold issues of access to higher education.

While often conceived of as a mere edge, a periphery is, etymologically, a space that encircles and contains. Historically, this constitutive ambiguity has led to an impoverished notion of periphery in which what occurs on the edge has often been considered only secondarily. Such a subordination is the result of a centrifugal movement from a purportedly dominant center towards an allegedly chaotic outskirt, a periphery that becomes merely the receptacle of outcast entities: whether individuals, social groups, or cultural narratives at large.

CFP: “A Duet with the Camera: Dance and the Still and Moving Image”

I feel strongly that film is related more closely to dance than to any other form because, like dance, it is conveyed in time. –Maya Deren
Filming and photographing moving bodies has altered how dance is choreographed, rehearsed, and staged for the camera. Critical debates surrounding the relation between dance and film have tended to revolve around notions of presence and liveness, and on the camera’s capacity to capture and express the ephemeral and visceral experience of live dance. This panel aims to investigate the ways in which artists, dancers, and filmmakers invite us to re-conceptualize the camera not as a recording device but as a stage which permits new articulations of the relationships between bodies in motion and technologies of representation through the use of various filmic and editing techniques. We are interested in proposals that examine collaborations between dancers, photographers and filmmakers, from early experiments during the silent film era and the collaborative initiatives of the historical avant-garde to the experimental film works of the Judson Dance Theatre, contemporary music videos and dance films. We also welcome papers that examine the theoretical underpinnings of dancing with the camera and the role of the spectator’s body in filmic performances. Continue reading Due May 12 | CFP: Session at UAAC (Banff, 12-15 Oct 17)
