The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!
Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.
The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.
To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

Oliver Grau 13.02.2018 TRANSDISCIPLINARY BECKETT
4th Samuel Beckett Society annual conference
Mexico City, November 7-10, 2018
The Fourth Beckett Society Conference will take place in Mexico City, on 7-10 November 2018. ‘Transdisciplinary Beckett’ is especially interested in recognising the role that radio, television, theatre, music, the arts, sciences and technologies play in Beckett Studies.
Samuel Beckett is a precursor in the creation of transdisciplinary works. He travelled between languages [English-French-German], genres [narrative, poetry, theatre, essay], and media [radio, television, cinema]. His work has been studied and applied across different perspectives and disciplines, ranging from literature, philosophy, and media, to political sciences, music, and contemporary art practices. Carrying out a transdisciplinary approach allows us to re-conceptualize Beckett as an author who found in different technologies and electronic languages new ways to think about our present time.
This conference will open up a space for specialists [humanities, arts and sciences] to present their research findings, as well as new ground in which we visualize Beckett as an author that can, and should be studied beyond the confines of a single discipline.
We encourage submissions focused on, but not limited to, the following topics:
1 SAMUEL BECKETT AND LANGUAGE [writings, texts, code, expanded literatures]
2 SAMUEL BECKETT AND CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICES [hybrids, digital arts, music and sound practices]
3 SAMUEL BECKETT AND POLITICS [history, sovereignty, state of exception, liberties, democracy vs totalitarian regimes, gender politics].
4 SAMUEL BECKETT AND THE BODY [biology, neurosciences, medicine, illness, disability, sexuality]
5 SAMUEL BECKETT AND MEDIA [analogue and digital: radio, television, film]
6 SAMUEL BECKETT AND TECHNOLOGIES [machines, Artificial Intelligence, prosthetic technologies, the post-human body]
7 SAMUEL BECKETT AND THEORY [philosophy, theory: digital humanities, media archaeology]
8 SAMUEL BECKETT [IN] MEXICO AND LATIN AMERICA [practitioners, actors, producers, artists in general that have produced Beckett’s work in Mexico and Latin America]
