Intermedial Narrative & Performance: New Approacheswill focus on new modes of storytelling at the intersection of performance, technology, art and design, and the ways in which they are producing alternative kinds of knowledge in and outside of the academy. Specifically, how do emerging multimedia performances and artworks use augmented and mixed reality tools, network archaeology, and new information infrastructures to generate creative opportunities and alternative modes of transmitting self, culture, and memory?
