Europe in Discourse: Identity, Diversity, Borders
Athens, Greece

The Conference seeks to examine issues in the ongoing construction of European identity, including notions of diversity and (physical and symbolic) borders. It will focus on critical investigations that draw on discourse theory or bottom-up textual analysis to investigate these topics from the following perspectives:

- historical, to explore the determinants which have been used to support a collective European identity;
- geopolitical, to understand the importance of space and its role in the European edifice;
- ideological/discursive, to investigate, synchronically and diachronically, key concepts that have informed EU practices of inclusion and exclusion.

Methodologically, the Conference will highlight discourse as a major practice that both shapes and reflects European identity.

The Conference welcomes contributions that investigate the role that key European Union texts have played in forging, maintaining or challenging European identities. The conference will thus highlight identity not as a static concept but as a construct that is continually negotiated and re-written in multiple discourses.

In addition to attracting contributions from discourse analysts and linguists, the Conference hopes to bring together leading scholars and researchers from a broad range of other fields, including history, European studies, cultural theory, media studies, sociology, political science, economics, and ethnology.

Reconfiguring Human and Non-Human: Texts, Images and Beyond
An interdisciplinary seminar at the University of Jyväskylä, Central
Finland on 29‒30 October, 2015
Deadline for abstracts: August 9, 2015

In recent years, scholars of different fields have turned their gaze
to the complex relations between humans and non-humans. Theorists and
thinkers of ecocriticism, animal ethics, queer studies, disability
studies and numerous other disciplines have challenged the humanist
notions that place (certain kinds of) human beings above all the
“other” creatures, with whom we share our world. In the meantime, our
material existence has been reconfigured by the human genome project,
in-vitro meat, custommade pharmacology, bioart and other scientific
developments. Consequently, (re)definitions and (re)imaginations of
humans and non-humans have gained new emphasis in cultural studies, as
have the complex material-social entanglements of the production and
reception of art and media. As our culture becomes saturated with
technology and we begin to notice the consequences of human
experiments and exploitation of nature, these questions of
human‒non-human relations become more urgent by the day.

In the interdisciplinary seminar RECONFIGURING HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN:
TEXTS, IMAGES AND BEYOND, we explore how humans and non-humans are
represented, (re)imagined ‒ or, indeed, remade ‒ across arts and
media. What political and ethical implications do cultural texts and
images of human and non-human embodiments have? Can we really
re-imagine non-humans beyond the humanist conceptions of human
supremacy? How are art and media productions created in the complex
material-social relations that encompass the spheres of both human and
non-human? Can we step outside our limited perspectives by creating or
engaging with human and non-human characters?

We invite papers on topics that include (but are not limited to):
- boundaries and relations between human and animal, organic and
inorganic, animate and inanimate, living and non-living in art and
- definitions and ontology of (fictional) characters; identification
with or affective responses to human and non-human characters and
- (representations of) human and non-human embodiments in art and
media; aliens, monsters, cyborgs and the “other others” of speculative
- unnatural narratology; human and non-human narrators and narratees
- posthumanism and ecocriticism across art and media; reconfiguring
the ethics of the non-human through texts, images and artistic
- human encounters with technology in or through art and media;
intersections of art and science; bioart
- disabled and enhanced bodies in art and media; body modification and
body as a medium

The seminar will take place at the University of Jyväskylä, Central
Finland on 29‒30th of October 2015. We are now looking for academics
and artists of all levels and fields to present their papers and to
participate in the international, interdisciplinary discussion the
seminar aims to facilitate. The event is particularly suitable for
researchers of art, culture, media and (post)humanist philosophy but
abstracts from all academic and artistic fields are welcome.

Please send your abstract of 200‒300 words and information on your
institutional affiliation to aino-kaisa.koistinen(a) by August
9, 2015. Panel proposals (200‒300 words, 3‒4 panelists) are also
welcome. We will contact all respondents shortly after the deadline.

Cultural Studies and Marxism
Book Series
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield International
Book Series Editor: Jaafar Aksikas

The /Cultural Studies and Marxism/
series is now seeking proposals for original books and edited volumes.
The series is a timely and valuable contribution to the larger field of
contemporary cultural studies. The global capitalist crisis of the
twenty-first century has prompted renewed interest in critical political
economy and Marxist theory. At the same time, publishing institutions
committed to a robust articulation between cultural studies, critical
political economy, and Marxism are almost non-existent. The series is
dedicated to addressing this situation by highlighting and making
available important (and emergent) scholarship at the intersection of
these three fields.

The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical as well as
empirical and historical contributions as the basis for vigorous
intellectual debate and exchange among cultural studies practitioners
and scholars. We are convinced that a project of this kind can make an
important contribution to the revitalization and renewal of the
politically committed intellectual project of cultural studies. As such,
the series also promises to be a vital component of the struggle to
produce useful knowledge that enables us to change the social world we
live in and make it better and more humane.

The peer-reviewed series will publish original monographs and edited
collections across the bounds of academic disciplinary agendas, and
across the divisions and institutions of cultural studies. We are keen
for the series to include as wide a range of voices, practices, formats,
approaches, positions, and interests as possible, so while the
‘traditional’ scholarly monograph is welcomed, we would also encourage
other formats, such as edited collections, treatises and manifestos.

The series also seeks to be a space where connections amongst Cultural
Studies practitioners across generations and locations are formed.
Because the alliances built by Cultural Studies practitioners in the
U.S. and the global north are deeply shaped by the global south/Third
World perspectives, the series will also be open to contributions from
scholars and practitioners in and outside of the U.S., including those
who may offer a transnational perspective on practicing Cultural Studies.

Conferência Internacional Stereo & Immersive Media 2015 - call for papers
Conferência Internacional

Submissão de abstracts até 1 de Setembro

A Conferência Internacional Stereo & Immersive Media 2015 (Media Estereoscópicos e Imersivos) pretende reunir investigadores, artistas e arquivistas que trabalhem sobre media visuais reconhecidos pelas suas características estereoscópicas e/ou imersivas. Os ambientes estereoscópicos e imersivos têm vindo a expandir o campo do fotográfico desde o século XIX. A recuperação do interesse pelas tecnologias estereoscópicas e imersivas tem gerado oportunidades de investigação das suas raízes históricas e também dos atuais desafios lançados à cultura visual.

Fotografia estereoscópica;
Práticas curatoriais e arquivísticas da fotografia estereoscópica;
Media cinemáticos imersivos;
Práticas científicas estereoscópicas;
Instalações imersivas de artes dos media;
Videojogos e realidades aumentadas;
Culturas de media visuais e hápticos.

Convergence: Special themed issue
Vol 22, no 3 (August 2016)
Deadline for submission: 31 July 2015

Connected Viewing: Multi-Platform Media in the Digital Era
Guest Editors: Jennifer Holt, Karen Petruska, and Gregory Steirer

This special issue aims to bring together researchers from film,
television, internet, and game studies to examine evolving trends in
connected viewing, an evolution in how screen media is created,
circulated, and consumed. Specifically referring to a multi-platform
entertainment experience, connected viewing also relates to a larger
trend across the media industries to integrate digital technology and
socially networked communication with traditional screen media
practices. This special issue will explore connected viewing as a
crucial frame through which we can understand contemporary media in
the digital era.

Connected viewing is more than digital distribution, for it
encapsulates the broader ecosystem in which digital distribution is
rendered possible and new forms of user engagement take shape.
Connected viewing is as much about the aesthetic and social experience
of second-screen media as it is about the intermediaries that deliver
content to mobile devices and the gatekeepers that regulate access. It
also extends to those firms and individuals operating “outside” of the
mainstream who are looking to create innovative connections to the
digital, global, and mobile audience.

This call for papers invites contributions that focus on the evolving
economics, technologies, regulations, texts, and audience practices of
connected viewing. Possible topics may include digital distribution
technologies and platforms; global markets and audiences; the
economics of connected viewing; web series and transmedia content;
data collection and privacy; cloud technologies and internet
infrastructure; network neutrality, internet governance, and other
regulatory issues; audience engagement and fandom.

Contributions on the following questions are welcome, but we are open
to any substantive inquiry:

**What are the historical continuities that limit or expand the
landscape for digital media innovations?

**Legacy companies today compete not only with each other but also
with new entrants like Netflix and Amazon. How is the struggle between
these companies transforming traditional media practices?

**What innovations has connected viewing brought to the production and
circulation of content, especially across platforms? How has this
affected creative labor?

**What are the emerging business models driving connected viewing, and
how might these impact audience practices and priorities (i.e. in
terms of digital divides, affordable content, privacy protections,

**What are the most dynamic connected viewing developments in Latin
American, Asian, European, or emerging economic markets?

**Do “independent” companies have a competitive advantage in the
connected viewing market for either film, TV, or games?

**What audiences have the advances of connected viewing left behind,
particularly considering racial, gender, class, and age differences?
Alternatively, how have audiences pushed connected viewing practices
forward in ways media companies have not?

**How is connected viewing transforming ideals of the public sphere
and community life?

Research articles will be in the range of 6,000-8,000 words and all
submissions should be formatted in the SAGE Harvard reference style.

We are also interested in publishing interviews of 3,000-5,000 words
with connected viewing creators, intermediaries, distributors, etc. If
you are interested in conducting an interview for this issue, please
email the editors with a brief description to determine suitability.

Submission Instructions:
Please upload submissions of full papers to the Convergence manuscript
submission site ( by 31
July 2015. When prompted to enter a manuscript type, select “special
issue: connected viewing” to flag your submission as a response to
this call.

Communication and media temporary job opportunity

In Semester One or Semester Two, the appointee will be asked to design
and run a new module in media writing in second year for approximately
40 students. ‘Media writing’ is to be interpreted broadly. It could mean
forms of journalistic writing (though note that we do not run journalism
degrees as such), or screenwriting, or other kinds of professional
writing skills, to complement a suite of existing modules with a
primarily academic focus.


In Semester One, the appointee will make a significant contribution to
compulsory first year undergraduate teaching (seminar support and marking).

In Semester Two, he or she will make a more substantial contribution to
a module called News Media and the Everyday (up to half of all lectures,
seminars, marking and other duties). Details of these two modules can be
found on our website at Communication and Media module details.

There will be additional teaching, supervision and administrative duties
to be negotiated with the successful applicant. This may include an
additional second/third year module that fits with the existing
curriculum, and/or the sharing of existing modules.

If this possibility is of interest, please send me your current CV by
July 16^th , so we can assess the extent of the interest and the
likelihood of attracting a strong field of applicants.
