The purpose of this conference is to reflect on the arrival in digital
normality and to better understand the dynamics of digital order and
disorder. These would include such topics as the types and
characteristics of communication in a digital society, the political
economy of media and artistic production, the foundational legal
principles and convictions of data and Internet regulation as well as
their enforcement, the diffusion of responsibility in algorithmically
controlled processes, the topoi of threats and legitimate
countermeasures in a cyber-security culture, the social practices and
subjectivities produced and assumed in a world of ubiquitous connections
and computers, the desiderata and dangers of various models of
technological innovation, and the identity groups and cultural forms
that have established themselves through digital and networked media.
We welcome innovative contributions from emerging scholars from all disciplines. These can include scientific papers but can also engage with digital disorders more broadly, for example, in the form of multimedia presentations or artistic interventions. The deadline for submissions is 15 July 2016. Please send submissions (up to 300 words, three keywords, and a short author bio) and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
