"JOURNALISM, MEDIA AND MASS COMMUNICATION AT THE CROSSROADS"

Today’s media exist in an age of challenging dichotomies: truth versus 'post-truth', facts versus 'alternative facts’ and news versus ‘fake news'. If media practitioners find this evolving environment perplexing, what of their audiences? The media landscape increasingly comprises traditional and new media - and media producers range from experienced professionals who publish or broadcast their work widely, to relative novices who use the internet and social media to access niche audiences. Regulated and unregulated media compete for audiences, but what implications for trust are there to the monetisation of falsehood?

GSTF L3 - 6th Annual International Conference On Language, Literature and Linguistics

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Language is at a nexus of interrelationships between individuals, society and culture. The interface between language and literature has been the object of considerable interdisciplinary research on methods of analysis that can be applied across the two fields and their sub-areas. Less research has focused, however, on the influence of the new technologies on this interface, which transcends borders and cultures, with the process of translation adding yet another dimension to the already complex picture. As the technological landscape continues to evolve, ideas related through literature, other modes of artistic expression and language are part of that which is being researched through the Digital Humanities.

AFROCENTRICITY IN VISIONARY CONVERSATION WITH BLACK/AFRICAN RADICAL INTELLECTUALISM AND AFRO-FUTURISM

Friday and Saturday, October 20 & 21, 2017

The Wyndham Historic District

Philadelphia, PA

The African world is thriving in spite of bearing witness to dystopic and threatening political, social, and cultural change and upheaval.  Society is responding to reassertions of supremacist thought, ethos, insanity, and regression, and there is a caution to avoid a pessimist trap.  In challenging chronophobia, known as a fear of the future, African people continue to maintain and pursue not only optimum liberation but also a technological awareness updated from past ingenuity to present creative consciousness.

Room of One's Own: Writing Interiors (Panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 6:09pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Writers, and women writers in particular, long for space to write for many reasons. Whether writers wish to be away from the burden of children or partners, or whether they simply seek (a) room wherein the solitary act of writing can be accomplished, physical and psychological spaces matter. This session seeks to examine literary interiors, such as depictions of home design, architecture, furniture, the study, the bedroom, or the kitchen from different cultural and linguistic perspectives. We also seek to analyze writers' interiors metaphorically, in order to explore what is happening within the writer and their protagonists' minds and bodies in their homes.

 

Becoming Dystopian? How Readers Respond when Dystopia Looks like their Lives

Saturday, September 30, 2017

What purpose do dystopian novels serve?  What is their effect on readers?  Are they meant to change readers’ behavior, to call them to action, or are they meant to be read for entertainment?  How do readers typically respond to reading them?  When dystopian works become so popular that they flood the markets, do they lose their impact becoming merely white noise?
