       Call for Papers: 'order' - edited by Axel Bruns & Liz Ferrier

The past fifteen years have been a time of major changes in the world -
from the implosion of the Eastern bloc through the economic upheavals of
the late 90s, to the 'war on terror' with its attendant global paranoias
and threats to civil liberties. Are we in the throes of a paradigm shift
towards a new world order, or is this largely a media construct? Do order
and disorder represent an episteme, a dominant system of understanding
social and political phenomena which structures our knowledge of the world
through the media? Social, political, and cultural changes challenge
established understandings of what is orderly and disorderly. Around these
changes new definitions of order and disorder emerge, and a struggle for
the ability to control these definitions plays out in the mediasphere. For
this issue we invite your analyses of the media's ordering of things, and
the processes which contribute to it.

The 'order' issue of M/C Journal will discuss these and other themes of
order and disorder. Help us make sense of the world again by submitting a
1000-1500 word article to

M/C Journal 'order' editors
