Panel Description:

CFP: Global Media Ecologies for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:43pm
Heidi Schlipphacke, University of Illinois, Chicago
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

This panel welcomes papers that address the topic of “Global Media Ecologies” in a broad sense. In an age defined simultaneously by increased media sharing across national lines and the retrenchment of perceived “clashes” of cultures, an analysis of media ecologies offers a unique window onto shifting notions of community and identity. Papers might reflect on contemporary ecologies created by new media platforms, softwares and marketing; on old media forms (radio, television, film) and their popularity in a variety of local and global spaces; on the limits and possibilities of translation; on the emergence of distinct popular narratives and tropes, etc. Papers may analyze these and/or other questions within one region or across regions.

Immersive Identities: Measuring the Reality of Virtual Spaces

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:50pm
NEMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

This panel engages a debate surrounding virtual reality and immersive story telling: do subjects project their real selves into virtual worlds, or do they use them to experience alternative identities?

By closing experiential gaps between the virtual and corporal, immersive virtual spaces can be experienced as real. Accordingly, virtual reality and immersive story telling can encourage subjects to express their real social behaviors, emotions, or morals. Similarly, subjects often experience virtual worlds in this manner, despite the presence of fictive or fictional elements.
