Delineations of apocalyptic non/alternative futures have been popular in the comic mode, irrespective of the approach to the formalistic manifestation: manga, graphic narratives, visual novels and so on. In the 20th century, wherein humanity has been torn apart by repeated belligerences of modern warfare and violence, doomsday sagas have garnered sustained attention; whether it is MARVEL’s ‘Apocalypse’, or the cyclopean ‘mecha’ robots of anime. The recent pandemic perhaps has augmented the darker side of imagination. However, the objective of the proposed volume is not to further the extant discourse of the cyberpunkish, post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Sophia Lucid invites academic research papers from teachers and researchers across universities, colleges and research institutes in India. The fourth issue (Volume IV, Issue I) on “Artificial Intelligence, Technology and Society” invites scholars to rethink the existing paradigms, perspectives and compendium of knowledge on this broad area, through the disciplines of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. An interdisciplinary discussion of ideas and concerns is highly recommended. Moreover, paper submissions must be original, contemporary and relevant, in providing a quality contribution to the existing body of knowledge. A list of suggestive areas is given below.

Cyberfeminism is a fusion of the term 'cyber', denoting the act of steering, governing, and controlling, and 'feminism', which represents an activist movement dedicated to women's liberation and justice at various levels - local, national, and international. Cyber-feminism aims to bridge the gap between the historical and philosophical traditions of feminism and contemporary feminist initiatives both online and offline. These initiatives focus on the lived experiences and realities of women from diverse backgrounds, including different ages, races, and socioeconomic statuses.

Abstract

ontemporary literary, computer game, and cinematic history are rife with forms of interactive fiction and storytelling. Gamebooks such as the Bantam Choose Your Own Adventure series of children’s books, video games from early text-based games like Zork to more contemporary gaming, and interactive movies of the type becoming increasingly common through streaming technologies, allow for a different kind of relationship between audiences and narratives.

These types of narratives have been read, watched, and played by adults and children alike with increased regularity since the popularization of the form in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Generative AI has upended ways of visualizing, reading, and interpreting texts, whether in makerspaces, on publishing platforms, or on college campuses.

Code as ConversationTransmedia Dialogues Around Critical Code Studies 

University of Cambridge, Saturday 1 June, 2024

‘Hello World!’ is how all computer programmers begin, and it’s how Mark C. Marino opens his manifesto for critical code studies. This elementary exercise in coding, accompanied by the instruction PRINT, demonstrates that “code exists not for machines but for humans who need to communicate with the machine and with other humans.” The code we write enables us to interface with the machine, sitting somewhere between human language and the calculations performed by the computer.
