The Museum of Science Fiction is accepting 250-word proposals for 15-20 minute papers to be presented at this year’s Escape Velocity Conference in National Harbor Maryland, May 24th – 26th, 2019.

 

As technological development continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, humanity finds itself more and more integrated with, and oftentimes dependent on, technological amplifications, interventions, and solutions. As such technology becomes commonplace, blurring the boundaries between organic and synthetic life, we might ask ourselves, will we someday reach a point where being “human” ceases to mean anything?

Glitches and Ghosts - An Interdisciplinary Conference - 17th April

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 11:20am
Lancaster University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Glitches are moments of disruption; they represent the exposure of technical process, moving away from the binaries of input and output to consider what comes in-between. The growing ubiquity of interconnected systems prompts a desire to understand such intangible networks around the user, an attempt to try and engage with these digital phenomena as alternate forms of ‘presence’ that cannot help but recourse to anthropocentric terms – virus, cloud, render ghost. The frequent ethereality of such language attempts to visualise, embody, and comprehend the profusion of technical systems that we share the atmosphere with, their very terming gesturing to their spectral protrusion into, ostensibly, ‘our’ reality.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

 

Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.

Handbook on Digital and Public Humanities

Anne Schwan and Tara Thomson / Edinburgh Napier University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

This collection seeks to bring together some of the most recent international scholarship and developments in the interdisciplinary fields of digital and public humanities. Alongside a critical exploration of the production, distribution and scholarship of culture in relation to digital media and technologies, the collection will examine the possibilities and challenges of publicly engaged scholarship in the digital humanities and beyond. Working with a broad definition of ‘public humanities’, we wish to interrogate the multifaceted interface of arts and humanities scholarship and engagement with wider ‘publics’ beyond academia, from literary and cultural heritage to creative arts and performance.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Some forecast a post-capitalist, post-scarcity economy in which employment is a sought-after luxury good. In this world, individuals have a guaranteed basic income and can freely pursue liberal studies as part of a flourishing life.    Others foresee a significant expansion of machine learning resulting in a world where wealth becomes even more highly concentrated in the hands of the machines’ owners. In that world, most individuals will eke out a living in a gig economy making use of soft skills derived from their liberal arts education. Artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, and a threat of a pervasive algorithcracy, will have profound implications for the meaning and purposes of liberal studies.
