We are thrilled to announce that our second keynote speaker this year will be Jenny Odell!

Jenny Odell is a California Bay Area native with a BA in English Literature from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Design and Technology from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work, which often repurposes imagery from Google Earth and Google Streetview, has been exhibited at the Google Headquarters, Les Rencontres D’Arles in France, and the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica. It has also turned up in TIME Magazine, The Atlantic, Wired, Rhizome, and European Photography. She lives in San Francisco and teaches a theory- and discussion-based course on cell phone photography at Stanford University.

The theme of this year’s Interface conference is transmediation. We invite submissions on a
broad range of subjects that explore questions related to transmediation and the consequences of this process for narrative, representation, and interpretation.

Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
– Adaption (animated, film, game, graphic, literary, mobile, etc.)
– Appropriation
– Critical artistic works
– Cross-platform media franchises
– Digital editions
– Education and transmediation
– Fan art
– New media art
– Parody
– Transmedia storytelling and other transmedia projects 

Please see the CFP for more details.

Interface 2014 is part of an annual series of graduate student-run conferences presented by the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) .
