2nd Leonardo Satellite Symposium: Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks (Jun 2011, Budapest)

We are pleased to invite you to Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks — 2nd Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci 2011 taking place at the Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest, on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.

Deadline for application: 6 February 2011.

We are pleased to announce the second Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2011 on Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks. The aim of the symposium is to foster cross-disciplinary research on complex systems within or with the help of arts and humanities.

The symposium will highlight arts and humanities as an interesting source of data, where the combined experience of arts, humanities research, and natural science makes a huge difference in overcoming the limitations of artificially segregated communities of practice. Furthermore, the symposium will focus on striking examples, where artists and humanities researchers make an impact within the natural sciences. By bringing together network scientists and specialists from the arts and humanities we strive for a better understanding of networks and their visualizations in general.

Making Modern Consumers: rationalization, mechanization, and digitalization in the Twentieth Century (June 2011, Washington DC)

Website: http://www.ghi-dc.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1102&Ite

Dates: June 16 – 18, 2011
Proposal submission deadline: 15 October 2010
Location: German Historical Institute
Conveners: Gary Cross (Penn State University), Angelika Epple (University of Bielefeld), Uwe Spiekermann (GHI Washington)

The historiography of twentieth-century consumption usually either analyzes processes of production or centers on narratives of actors. Consumption is presented as an active process, grounded in the changing patterns of needs and wants driven by firms, consumers, or both. While these narratives underline our understanding of rationalization as a process of acceleration, the rapidly developing spheres of consumption and production emerge as more or less autonomous, clearly separated from each other. Our conference will question this perspective.
