[ecrea] CFP: Digital developments - special issue

Thu Apr 15 14:42:35 GMT 2010

>Digital developments: special issue
>The digital revolution, and particularly the 
>massive growth and take-up of the web, have 
>generated profound changes in the lives of 
>people in many different communities, not least 
>the cultural and heritage sectors.
>Individuals and organisations use the web to 
>present their work in new ways, which provide 
>opportunities for people to interact with 
>content and services and ideas in ways 
>inconceivable only a few years ago. And we are 
>still in the relatively early stages of 
>generating new art forms that exploit the many 
>different opportunities offered by digital 
>technologies. But we have relatively little 
>detailed analytical knowledge of how producers 
>in the cultural sector ­ in the visual arts and 
>media, in music and the performing arts, in 
>literature, and in the heritage sector ­ are 
>exploiting and leading the development of new 
>technologies in the UK and elsewhere. And we 
>have similarly little knowledge of how consumers 
>are making use of new services, and their attitudes and experiences.
>For this special issue of Cultural Trends we are 
>calling for papers which explore how different 
>individuals and organisations, within and across 
>different parts of the cultural sector, are 
>making use of digital technologies; and which 
>analyse the experiences of different groups of 
>digital consumers. The world has changed, but 
>the precise nature and dimensions of that 
>change, and of further changes to come, remain to be understood.
>The deadline for the submission of papers is 
>17th September 2010 for selection by the 
>Cultural Trends Advisory Board. Please send an 
>email headed â¬ÜCultural Trends  Digital 
>Developmentsâ¬" to the journalâ¬"s editor, Sara 
>Selwood at (sara /at/
