You are invited to attend the 2nd annual conference of HASTAC (the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory), TechnoTravels/TeleMobility: HASTAC in Motion. Panels, lightning talks, demos, and poster sessions will occur at both sites, the University of California, Irvine and the University of California, Los Angeles.

This conference's theme is "techno-travels" and explores the multiple ways in which place, movement, borders, and identities are being renegotiated and remapped by new locative technologies. Featured projects will delve into mobility as a modality of knowledge and stake out new spaces for humanistic inquiry. How are border-crossings being re-conceptualized, experienced, and narrated in a world permeated by technologies of mobility? How is the geo-spatial web remapping physical geographies, location, and borderlands? How are digital cities interfacing with physical space? How do we move between virtual worlds? And what has become of sites of dwelling and stasis in a world saturated by techno-travels?
This year’s conference literalizes and metaphorizes travel, as attendees will participate in sessions at Irvine, Los Angeles, and on the connecting corridors of Southern California.
