14th Annual Carleton Communication Graduate Caucus Conference

March 21–22, 2019 | Richcraft Hall | Carleton University | Ottawa, Ontario, Canada




Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.


Handbook on Digital and Public Humanities

Anne Schwan and Tara Thomson / Edinburgh Napier University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

This collection seeks to bring together some of the most recent international scholarship and developments in the interdisciplinary fields of digital and public humanities. Alongside a critical exploration of the production, distribution and scholarship of culture in relation to digital media and technologies, the collection will examine the possibilities and challenges of publicly engaged scholarship in the digital humanities and beyond. Working with a broad definition of ‘public humanities’, we wish to interrogate the multifaceted interface of arts and humanities scholarship and engagement with wider ‘publics’ beyond academia, from literary and cultural heritage to creative arts and performance.

Liberal Education Conference May 16-18 2019

Mount Royal University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Some forecast a post-capitalist, post-scarcity economy in which employment is a sought-after luxury good. In this world, individuals have a guaranteed basic income and can freely pursue liberal studies as part of a flourishing life.    Others foresee a significant expansion of machine learning resulting in a world where wealth becomes even more highly concentrated in the hands of the machines’ owners. In that world, most individuals will eke out a living in a gig economy making use of soft skills derived from their liberal arts education. Artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, and a threat of a pervasive algorithcracy, will have profound implications for the meaning and purposes of liberal studies.
