                        Call for Papers: 'transmit'
           Edited by Hendrik Huijser and Brooke Collins-Gearing

In an increasingly globalised and networked world, to transmit is to exist.
In a sense this has always been the case as transmitting is at the heart of
human communication and works on many different levels, including
information, knowledge, culture, language, and media. What has changed then
is not so much the action of transmitting itself, but rather the speed of
transmission, facilitated by increasingly sophisticated transmission tools
and widening access to those tools. This in turn has major implications for
the volume of transmissions and the ability or inability to process them.
In this context of content overload and fierce competition for attention,
to transmit effectively becomes vital, whether on a professional, personal,
community or global level.

This issue of M/C Journal invites reflections on 'transmit' from all
potential angles relating to media and culture, including its potential and
its limitations. This could include analyses of the tools of transmission,
the content of transmission, including the transfer of information,
knowledge, culture, language and all forms and genres of media, or a
creative combination thereof. Send 1000-1500 word articles to
transmit_at_journal.media-culture.org.au.

Article deadline: 16 January 2006
Issue release date: 15 March 2006
