Call for Papers

Conference on Affect, Interfaces, Events (AIE 2018)
August 29- 30, 2018
Aarhus, Denmark

Deadline for submissions: April 16th, 2018

The proliferation of digital and interactive technologies in most aspects of our daily lives produces an intensified distribution of affect. Existential conditions change through affective interface foldings of bodies, subjectivities and technologies. The conference Affects, Interfaces, Events investigates how affective interface events on a micro- and macro-level reinforce or challenge these changes. A major concern of the conference is to consider interface modulations on an affective, social, aesthetic, and political level. We welcome contributions (papers, designs and other interventions) that consider the affective relations involved in interface events and creations. Themes may include but are not limited to:

  1. New perspectives on the relations between discourse, power relations, and the affective and signaletic material of networked data, media and audio-visual culture.
  2. Considerations of online affective encounters.
  3. Considerations of how interfaces participate in affect modulation and how their changing configurations might alter conditions.

Confirmed speakers:
