This special issue of Storytelling, Self, Society will investigate the way digital media has specifically altered practices such as narrative, character/identity, culture, story creation, and dissemination. Research questions might include: How do public and private users develop cultural media?

PHuN Symposium 2020: Envisioning Learning and Trust

updated: 
Saturday, December 14, 2019 - 1:16pm
Posthuman Network
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 20, 2019

In an age of technological growth, globalization, and neoliberalism, the ways we build trust are being dramatically transformed. Simultaneously, funding for education has become subject to market- and data-driven directives, neglecting the needs of vulnerable communities and ecologies. How do we learn to trust and trust in learning when our communities and connections are increasingly distant, ephemeral, and mediated? How do we avoid falling to game-theoretically governed social, economic, and informatic relations? What aspects of trust are under-considered in efforts for learning and change? Where are the flows of trust in above/below-ground networks (institutions, organizations, grassroots movements, communities of practice, etc.)?

ALIEN PROCESSES: REPRODUCTION & TIME

Monday, December 2, 2019 - 4:16pm
Ekin Erkan/The New Centre of Research & Practice
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 20, 2019

The intensifying intimacy between humans and technology generates “de-naturalized” relations of body, cognition and time. This bodily experience of alienation is not solely technological, but also social. While we can try to escape denaturalization and alienation, we can also consider them as autonomous processes of production and reproduction.

Today, predictive processing determines how control is produced and reproduced technically, whether in drone warfare, high-speed trading, computerized borders, or facial recognition technologies. As attention-management, statistical parameters and machine learning emerge as nonlinear instruments, biology is no longer describable under the strict terms of biopower.

Dear Colleagues,

 

Theere is one week left as the CFP for the Handbook of Research on Machine Ethics and Morality has been extended to December 2, 2019. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a proposal. I’m expecting a similarly robust exchange for this extended call. Again, I’m interested in approaches to the topic from the humanities, with exploration on rhetorics and philosophies of artificial intelligence, machine ethics, and moral machines.

 

AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 - 3:07pm
Iuri Moscardi (PhD student, CUNY)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?

Independent Libraries as the 'Great Good Place'

updated: 
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 2:45pm
Independent Libraries Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place. Third spaces can be cafes, main streets, coffeehouses, beer gardens…

This two-day interdisciplinary conference is hosted by the AHRC Funded Chronotopic Cartographies project (Lancaster University) in partnership with The British Library. It comes out of primary research into the digital visualisation of space and time for fictional works that have no real-world correspondence. Chronotopic Cartographies develops digital methods and tools that enable the mapping of literary works by generating graphs as “maps” directly out of the coded text.

Theories and Strategies for Teaching Creative Writing Online

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:41am
Theories and Strategies for Teaching Creative Writing Online Edited Collection
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

To meet the needs of the growing body of online students, online pedagogy scholars persist in their efforts to ensure online education is as vibrant and effective as its onsite counterpart, if not more so. However, scholarship focusing on teaching creative writing, specifically, online is limited. As Bronwyn T. Williams rightfully points out, “the scholarship in creative writing pedagogy remains remarkably unengaged with digital technologies” (247). Given the youthfulness of creative writing scholarship, particularly when compared to other work that has taken the forefront in English studies, it is fair to assume that creative writing scholarship might be too limited at the present to include online education perhaps as it should.
