Annual Conference of the MA Program in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories at OCAD U
Fredric Jameson spoke of a “dialectical intensification of the autoreferentiality of all modern culture, which tends to turn upon itself and designate its own cultural production as its content."

Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism

Building upon Fredric Jameson’s potent and pithy insight into the character of contemporary cultural production this conference asks broadly about the role of appropriation and interdisciplinarity. Has the traditionally discipline-based structure of scholarship been challenged or changed by recombinant forms and processes of critical engagement?
