Techne Expanding: Tensions, Terrains, and Tools
2018 Mid-America College Art Association Conference
Technology is often confined to a narrow definition that focuses on bigger, better, faster tools and products. The 2018 MACAA Conference, Techne Expanding: Tensions, Terrains, and Tools—focuses on techne, a concept of technology that emphasizes the role art and craft in its production and development. We examine, embrace or resist technology. We we celebrate, critique, and consider its promise as well as its limitations. Educator, artists, makers, performers, designers, and scholars across the full spectrum of disciplines share their expertise and perspectives in the form of presentations, panels, and performances.
