2022 Mid-America College Art Association Virtual Conference
Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania
March 31 – April 2, 2022
As artists, we draw maps, imperfect translations of the world. We interact with that function as a tool for others to better understand where they situate themselves within this world. As educators, we design road maps for students to find their bearings, to set a course. Then, to pick up where our maps have left off to continue discovering new terrains. Technology is the means by which we generate these maps. How will advancements in technology continue to initiate new understandings of these maps? How does mapping define us, both physically and metaphysically? Given the challenges educators, students, and institutions are currently facing, we are particularly interested in sessions that address timely topics relevant to the changing landscape of art, technology, and education, as well as those which consider mapping in relation to cognitive, emotional, and health-based applications. It is undeniable there are still many maps to be drawn that will both solidify and complicate how we understand ourselves in relation to each other and the space we inhabit now and in the future.
MACAA invites artists, designers, educators, historians, performers, scientists, writers, and other professionals to come together virtually on ZOOM. We invite scholars across the full spectrum of disciplines to share their expertise and perspectives in the form of presentations, papers, panels, performances, and posters. We welcome proposals by individuals and groups and invite proposals for linked activities or streams.
