The Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC), in partnership with Pratt Institute, has issued a CFP for it’s 2023 conference: Critical Making and Social Justice. From the announcement:
HASTAC 2023 welcomes submissions from practitioners at all stages of their careers; from all disciplines, occupations, and fields; and from groups as well as individuals, including independent scholar-practitioners, artists, and activists. Commensurate with the broad theme of “Critical Making and Social Justice,” we seek proposals for a wide range of papers, posters, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, etc. related to such topics as:
- art and activism, and their relationship to scholarship
- interventions in design justice, data justice and data feminism, algorithmic accountability, (digital) literacies, open knowledge, and accessibility in all its forms
- community-based projects and learning, participatory research and design
- praxis, as the enactment of theory, and socially-engaged learning
- critical uses and non-uses of technology, including resistance to technology, creative misuses, subversions, etc.
- creative, educational, and social implications of emerging technologies, including robotics, automation, rapid prototyping, wearables, “smart” devices, and extended reality (AR/VR/MR)
- craft and other forms of making that support justice work
- research and teaching that reflects emerging conversations on racism, capitalism, sexism, gender bias, ableism, nationalism, colonialism, and their many intersections with humanities, arts, design, (social) sciences, and technology
- progressive pedagogy and educational engagements with issues of social justice
- work undertaken by, with, and for the Lenape people and other Indigenous peoples
- sustainability and environmental justice in projects, pedagogy, design, and other areas
- public humanities and the evolution of public discourse and media
All submissions to the conference must be filed at https://www.conftool.pro/hastac2023 by October 31, 2022. Submissions can be papers, short talks, panels and roundtables, workshops, posters, exhibits/demonstrations, and alternative formats.
