Constant transformation has been the norm in the new digital media environment since its inception. During the 2020 health crisis, the impact of this ever-changing digital world in our daily lives has been especially notable. Due to quarantine measures, the only opportunity to interact with friends and to consume culture was to rely on social networks, streaming services and video conferencing softwares. Web-based cultural activities have affected people’s relationships with cyberspace: many have visited museums, seen award ceremonies, and even been to concerts online. In other words, we are never disconnected from the Internet (DeNardis 2020).
This roundtable invites perspectives across the academy, including graduate students and contingent faculty, to explore the impact of virtual teaching on discussions of academic freedom and intellectual property. This is a guaranteed session through the Higher Education in the Profession forum.
The Modern Language Association will take place January 6-9 2022 in Washington D.C., and should include some hybrid components.
In view of recent and current global events, the phone camera has emerged as an important and effective political apparatus. The centrality, proliferation, and prominence of phone footage across contemporary screen media and media platforms suggests that the phone camera is no longer just an indulgent phone fixture, but rather, an invaluable truth-telling tool. Practical, accessible, and autonomously used, the phone camera has been an essential technology to the present-day exposures of injustice, violence, and corruption around the world.

Deadline Extension: Due to an extension of our funding timeline, we are making a significant extension of this CFP deadline, which will now be July 31, 2021 (moving back work on the proposed edition by a semester as well). We hope this gives people more time to develop a proposal than the original tight turnaround, especially after the semester is over and people can take a step back from what is an unusually disruptive year. We are happy to talk to people about possible proposals. Updated CFP text is below.

What is an Image, Now?
The study of images is a vast and complicated field of enquiry that looks to understand how changing modes of production, dissemination and consumption, (including changes to the aesthetics and materiality of images) transforms the value of images, their very definition and ontology.

In today’s world, the function of the English classroom has fundamentally shifted. Instead of teaching the fully paper-based curriculum of the past, instructors of English now must incorporate genres that encompass anything from videos to website creation.
In the study of literature, rhetoric, and composition, too, the field is beginning to recognize new and more multimodal forms of scholarship. Think of Kairos, the online only rhet/comp journal. Think of the work of scholars like Kristen Arola, Cynthia Selfe, and Qwo Li Driskill—work that asks us to think outside the box of the academic paper.

The study of conspiracism overlaps with the study of esotericism, occultism, and magic in several respects. In addition to the frequent significance of secrecy and clandestine interactions in the history of esoteric, occult, and magical movements, their association (real or imagined) with heterodox religious movements, political subversion, and intelligence organizations has led to close association of these conceptions with each other in popular cultural imagination as well as in their own subcultural milieux. Esotericists, occultists, and magicians have themselves engaged in conspiracist conception, generated conspiracy theories, and projected them onto others, as well as themselves being the recipients of such projections by both religious and secula
