2023 Conference

Digital Creativity 15th – 17th June

Cultural Literacy Everywhere is delighted to announce its 2023 Conference on the topic of Digital Creativity, a hybrid event co-hosted by the University of Oslo. The programme includes keynote lectures, a variety of Workshops, the CLE AGM and a number of breakout sessions of 10-minute presentations followed by plenary discussions.

Our current cultural landscape is characterized by an increasing confluence of analog, digital, and natural environments. Since the 1980s, we have witnessed a steady expansion of the ‘digital humanities wave’ – from the digitization of historical or cultural material to digital analysis and visualization and currently how humanities discourses influence applications and codes. In this environment of the Digital Anthropocene, with its transformative technological and critical practices, we can detect emerging creative trends haunted by a sense of threat and challenge. This mix of curiosity for the new and fear of loss and nostalgia appear in the academic domains of the humanities and social sciences – now often in close collaboration rather than a perpetual collision with areas such as genetics and bioinformatics. In addition, cross-disciplinary activities of knowledge production are creative endeavours within the digital landscape and big data environment, where they respond to a novel need to explore and assess not only the ontological implications of the digital age but also our roles in making it.

The Conference is designed to generate active discussion on creative practices in the digital
age, focusing on thinking, talking, and showing what such practices can be or become.

The conference will take place at the Voksenåsen conference hotel in the Oslo Forest and online via the Padlet/Zoom.
