In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology capable of generating entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly (and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank), Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA.

Beyond Fandom: The Dark Side of Social Media Discourse

updated: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024 - 3:59pm
Dr. Natalie Le Clue / Nelson Mandela University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

In the evolving landscape of social media Hills’ (2017) concept of an “always on” digital space illustrates a transformative shift in behaviour and communication online. These digital environments often exhibit cyclical toxicity that permeates online discourse, which necessitates a focused examination. For instance, Le Clue’s (2023) research demonstrates the concerns surrounding the functioning of online communities and reveals an alarming unchecked spread of toxic rhetoric, intolerance, and hateful speech. The significance of the research conducted for this collection lies in its potential to offer insights into the impact of contemporary communication.

Queer Africa: New Directions in Art, Film, and Literature

This special issue of The Thinker sets out to examine the rapidly expanding field of queer artistic production in Africa.

IPCC - INTERDISCIPLINARY PhD COMMUNICATION CONFERENCE
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

Digital platforms’ ubiquity and pervasive nature have ignited discussions around the boundaries between what is considered private and what is rendered public. Cohen’s (2012) exploration of privacy in the digital age highlights how technological advancements challenge the conventional norms we attribute to personal space and information. Privacy also seems to be a buzzword of any privately deployed enterprise built upon collecting and distributing personal information (Strauß & Nentwich, 2013). While traditional conceptualisations of privacy and its value consider personal information as something to protect or own while focusing on how information is handled, recent accounts take ontological and contextual perspectives (Solove, 2008; Marmor, 2015).

I was, besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man. I was more agile than they and could subsist upon coarser diet; I bore the extremes of heat and cold with less injury to my frame; my stature far exceeded theirs. When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” - Frankenstein, Mary Shelley

2024 Biannual Conference

June 23-26, 2024

Courtyard by Marriot Beachfront | Gulfport, Mississippi

There is a need to reconceptualize queer Souths in the face of the challenges and revocation of rights that the community has faced in the last seven years. While there is certainly an existing body of scholarship on queer Souths, those works tend to focus on specific sites or individuals rather than examining the activism and art that connect to build a genealogy of queer Souths.

This panel welcomes proposals that include but are not limited to:
