EXTENDED New Fictional Formats & Age-Old Narratives: Understanding Creative Modes of Popular Culture in the Digital Age

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 8:58am
PopMeC research blog
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 14, 2020

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).

Digital Expressions of the Self/ Special Issue of Convergence

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 12:04pm
National Institute of Technology Silchar
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 16, 2021

This issue of ''Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies'' engages with the digital forms of expressions of the self. We invite papers that explore the ways in which, for instance, digital techniques now allow the construction of selves that often rely more on algorithms than any ‘original’ referent. Consider, for example, how algorithms simulate images, voices etc. and have become the basis for facial recognition, biometrics and similar datafication concerning the self. This shift is indicative of what we might term posthuman condition. Along these lines,  we are interested in papers that engage with how expressions enhanced by algorithms produce multiple, fractured selves.

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 3:59pm
Frames Cinema Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

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.

Beyond Tradition: Multimodality in English Scholarship

Wednesday, January 6, 2021 - 4:26pm
Red River Graduate Student Conference at North Dakota State University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 26, 2021

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.
