This panel asks creative writers to speculate on their own work or that of others and envision the future of the novel. The panel proposes to address the following questions:
· What technologies (such as the internet, videogaming, virtual reality, or artificial intelligence) might shape the form of the novel of the future?
· How might the novel be impacted by future trends and technologies in publishing and the literary marketplace?
· How might the novel form be re-envisioned?
· How do other media, such as videogames, use narrative in novelistic modalities?
The panel invites a wide range of interpretations of this topic and encourages creative work
This seminar will share and exchange perspectives on and experiences of multicentering / multicentricity in creative research practices. Our seminar will explore ways in which multicentricity, rhizomatics, and intra-action inform creative research practices, and how these strategies aid in reinventing the relationships between the elements involved.

SOUTHEAST ASIAN MEDIA STUDIES JOURNAL
SPECIAL ISSUE 4.2:
DIGITAL MEDIA CULTURE IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN SOCIETIES
CFP: Romance Epic Meets Technology
The American-Canadian Branch of the Société Rencesvals is pleased to invite scholars from all disciplinary approaches to submit a paper for possible inclusion in a session at the 2022 International Congress on Medieval Studies (Kalamazoo, May 9-14) on the intersection of technology and the medieval romance epic.
Digital Humanities has the potential to add to the traditional study of Spanish Literature and Culture. By moving beyond the traditional theoretical frameworks of literary theory and criticism, Digital Humanities processes provide the opportunity to re-examine cultural production. Digital Humanities also provides an outlet to examine the intersectionality of Linguistics and Literature and Culture, combining two fields which have traditionally remained exclusive. Therefore, this panel provides the opportunity to showcase Digital Humanities projects and/or methods that incorporate digital tools in the interrogation of Spanish Literature and Culture, and/or those which combine Linguistics and Literature and Culture.

Today, much of our research and information gathering takes place online. The reality is that despite information literacy efforts, many, if not most, users are increasingly vulnerable online. How do we care about information literacy, data literacy, and media literacy?
From Salman Rushdie’s Twitter feed and Amazon reviews to Bookstagram and GoogleScholar, there is no doubt that digital technology has had a significant impact on the literary landscape. And yet in literary studies, our engagement with the impact of digital technology on how literature is read, criticized, and produced is still in its infancy. Much of the existing research on digital literary studies is focused on anomalous projects that are closer to performance art pieces than what we might call mainstream literary culture or they study pre-digital literary topics using digital humanities tools and methods. While this research is necessary and valuable, it does not often concern itself with digital-born literary culture—i.e.
Following the success of the previous event, we are delighted to once again organize this premier academic event that will address the most pressing needs and emerging trends in the field. Join us for three days of learning. Engage in discussions with our prestigious panel of speakers and your peers. Share your own research findings. Whether you are applying to present at the event or are looking to join as an attendee, it will be our pleasure to welcome you to the social sciences conference 2021.
The ubiquity of social media and technology affects how people perceive and care for the world (digital and physical) around them. This panel engages scholars on how a seemingly endless stream of information causes readers to waffle on the precipice of fake news and misinformation, creating a threat to cultural representations, critical literacy, discourse, and cultural misinformation in virtual spaces. Scholars will explore the impacts of or potential means of combating increasingly pervasive fake news in a society reliant on digital information.

Afterlives of Data
Guest Editors: Brian Michael Murphy (Bennington College) & Kris Paulsen (The Ohio State University)
This workshop prepares humanities faculty to teach their classes effectively and imaginatively. To this end, the workshop has two goals. First, it surveys the major lessons learned during the emergency shift to online instruction during the coronavirus pandemic. Second, it offers specific, concrete strategies for moving forward as colleges and universities return to some measure of instructional normality.
The strategies in this workshop will address the following pedagogical areas: course design and management, best practices in the use of Zoom, discussion dynamics, and assignment design.
This session seeks to explore scholarly work that are composed through non-traditional forms of academic writing. Everything from the video essay (including remix, digital argument, MeMorial, videographic criticism, etc.) to the digital book will be considered. Any work that explores the affordances of alternative form is welcome. Work that egages with the conference theme, "City of God, City of Destruction," is appreciated but all work will be considered.
Please submit a description of the project you would like to present at pamla.ballastacademic.com or email email@example.com for assistance submitting.
Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “overthe-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

Title: Peer Review and the Pandemic
Deadline: 1 September 2021
Following the pandemic, the ways in which mobile bodies are being administered and governed are in sync with advanced techniques of demographic control, which manifests into increasing digital surveillance on mobilities. Conversely, the neo-liberal economic order reifies speed and mobility, while ‘deterritorialization’ continues to constitute an important paradigm for the ‘flows and networks’ in a globalized world.
