2018 MID-AMERICA COLLEGE ART ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE
Techne Expanding: Tensions, Terrains, and Tools
Hosted by THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA - LINCOLN
Lincoln, Nebraska October 4 - 5, 2018
The 2018 Mid-America College Art Association Conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln explored wide-ranging interpretations of technology and its use and impact on the teaching, making, and performing of art as well as the broader human experience. Recognizing that technology has art and craft at its root (techne) and isn’t limited just to bigger, better, or faster tools and products, MACAA 2018 examined how we embrace or resist, celebrate or critique, and consider the promises and limits of technology.
