NB: We are acutely aware that this CFP coincides with extremely uncertain times re COVID-19. Of course, it is currently unknown when gatherings of people will be able to resume as normal. We have every intention of holding this event in October, but first and foremost must prioritise the safety of our attendees. If necessary, we will either postpone the conference or host it virtually.

The National institute of Technology, Silchar is organizing a symposium on ''Digital Expressions of the Self'' during 7-8 Dec 2020. We are interested in how people experiment with creative expressions of the self. Constructing the self in the digital sphere may involve processes of experimentation that in turn allow one to experience the self in multiple ways. This is mediated of course by the apparatus of the digital-codes and algorithms. We are interested in the nuances of these processes and the aesthetics of the expressions. The deadline for abstract submission is 22 May. Details available here:
Due to disruptions caused by the current Coronavirus crisis, we have extended the deadline for abstracts for the 25th September 2020 symposium- Supermodels of the World: RuPaul’s Drag Race as International Phenomenon.
Dependent on further developments, online participation may become our primary method for all to engage in this one day event. We will, of course, update accordingly.

Digital technologies have in the last decade profoundly changed China’s cultural landscape. Messaging apps such as WeChat and Chinese-language podcasts have become important platforms for critical debate, whilst the rising popularity of online platforms for fiction writing, video sharing, shopping, movie ratings and gaming reflect new practices of media consumption and reception. State surveillance and censorship play an important role in China’s wired culture, but web-based cultural activities do not only take place in the shadows of a repressive state but also reflect profound social and cultural transformations, technological developments as well as innovative engagements with traditional aesthetics.
