"Digital Expressions Of The Self"

updated: 
Monday, April 27, 2020 - 1:24pm
National Institute Of Technology, Silchar
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 22, 2020

The National institute of Technology, Silchar is organizing a symposium on ''Digital Expressions of the Self'' during 7-8 Dec 2020. We are interested in how people experiment with creative expressions of the self. Constructing the self in the digital sphere may involve processes of experimentation that in turn allow one to experience the self in multiple ways. This is mediated of course by the apparatus of the digital-codes and algorithms. We are interested in the nuances of these processes and the aesthetics of the expressions. The deadline for abstract submission is 22 May. Details available here:

Wired China: Digital Media and Online Culture

Monday, April 27, 2020 - 1:24pm
University of Zurich
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 14, 2020

Digital technologies have in the last decade profoundly changed China’s cultural landscape. Messaging apps such as WeChat and Chinese-language podcasts have become important platforms for critical debate, whilst the rising popularity of online platforms for fiction writing, video sharing, shopping, movie ratings and gaming reflect new practices of media consumption and reception. State surveillance and censorship play an important role in China’s wired culture, but web-based cultural activities do not only take place in the shadows of a repressive state but also reflect profound social and cultural transformations, technological developments as well as innovative engagements with traditional aesthetics.

Dreams for Our Children: Immigrant Parents Advice for their Children

updated:

Omotayo Banjo
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The political narrative of immigration trends is that people are fleeing their countries to exploit American resources. Immigrants are generally depicted as violent, the cause of crime and job loss, not only in America but around the world. The undercover criminal narrative overshadows that of the risk-taker, willing to leave what is familiar to improve the life of his or her family. The stereotype of violent behavior overshadows the violence enacted upon them by their host countries which have put many immigrants in the situations they are in today. It is well documented that immigrants, and especially undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes.

MMLA 2020 Popular Culture Permanent Session CFP: Fan Responses to Popular Culture (deadline extended to May 31))

updated: 
Friday, April 24, 2020 - 5:46pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

Due to the current circumstances, the deadline for submitting a paper for this panel has been extended to May 31.

Last year, when Fox canceled the television show Lucifer, a fan campaign to save the show resulted in Netflix picking it up for another season. This was not an isolated incident. Collectives of fans, gathering both online and in person, often influence the longevity, the content, the dispersal, and the afterlife of their favorite shows, games, songs, and other popular culture artifacts. In response to the conference theme “Cultures of Collectivity,” the popular culture permanent session invites papers that investigate how both planned and spontaneous groups appropriate or influence popular culture.
