Is Big Data a New Medium? An Interdisciplinary Symposium 7-8 May 2018

The growing quantification of social behaviours changes those behaviours. Extensive data collection alters the way we view our bodies, habits, environments, relationships, and society at large. Big data architectures are increasingly determining classificatory systems in the social, political, and corporate realms, transforming political questions into ‘technical management’. Promises of a cyborgian existence, free of patriarchal, capitalist, social, gender, and racial oppression (Haraway) here stand in stark contrast to the steadily proliferating forms of digital surveillance and control. Data, and their multiple arborisations, have become new epistemic landscapes. They have also become new existential territories (Guattari).

Digital Identities **EXTENDED DEADLINE**

New Perspective in the Digital Humanities, Kings College London
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the center of digital humanities.
