CFP Issue 34: Inhuman Algorithms

http://www.transformationsjournal.org/calls-for-papers/

Algorithms are integral to a digital, networked, automated society. Thrown into the public spotlight by a certain high profile search engine, algorithms are increasingly recognised to exercise agency in practices such as governance, surveillance, online personalisation, medicine, design, high frequency trading, credit scoring and plagiarism. Computational machines make decisions about things, people, places and experiences, and humans learn to address algorithms.

How does homelessness and transience translate in digital spaces?

The Eighth Annual WSU Visual Culture Symposium seeks to explore the visual logics of feminist art, theory, and practice, in all their complexity and multiplicity, and to place such logics in the current political moment. From the #MeToo-movement to the Women’s March, feminist activism has drawn national attention in recent years. In some respects, such activism has produced tangible gains: the 116th House of Representatives is the most racially diverse and counts the largest number of women in US history.

Papers for this session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction.  Especially welcome are topics relevant to the South Atlantic Modern Longauge Association's 2019 conference theme: “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.”  For Percy, the human capacity for language and for naming gives us our identity and is only possible through relationships of intersubjectivity.  Percy wrote extensively on language, creating his “radical anthropology” based on his unique semiotic, with these themes pervasive in his novels.  For more information about conference theme, see:  https://samla.memberclicks.net/

Current debates about digital technology are caught in a death spiral of gloom, doom and anxiety. After a long period of optimism that accompanied the explosion of social media and assumptions of their democratic potential, today’s discourse is dominated by fear. Fear about the unchecked power of digital monopolies like Facebook, Google and Amazon; about the (ab)use of social media by far right political movements; about the psychopathologies, risks and trade-offs associated with constant and unyielding connectivity; fears about the radical surveillance enabled by the digital.

The Editors have been delighted at the proposals we have received thus far, and hope that more will come in before the 1 May 2019 deadline.

With fewer than 2 months to go, however, we have decided to issue a revised Call for Contributors to advertise the consorts that we have received no abstracts for.

So, while we are keen to hear from prospective authors on any consort, we are especially looking for submissions on:
