This conference champions an expansive conception of the tools which produce culture as we aim to better inquire into the nature of the relationship between production—artistic or intellectual—and its auxiliary artifacts. From the first stylus to AI image generators, we call for papers that seek to investigate the materiality and function of tools that allow one to imagine, make, and perceive. Proposals from graduate students and independent scholars across the humanities will be considered, including Art, Art History, Anthropology, Literature, Dance Studies, Ethnic Studies, Global Studies, History, Media and Cultural Studies, Music, Religious Studies, Philosophy, among others.
