Call for Papers
Taking Back the Web: Participation, panic, power – public and private
Conference at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland
19-20 October 2018

The Centre for Critical Media Literacy (CCML) at Dublin Institute of Technology is seeking proposals for papers and panels at its second annual conference.

With societies experiencing a widespread loss of trust in ‘surveillance capitalism’, how can a genuinely critical media literacy help to analyse and transform the relationship between personal and civic data and corporate profit? What alternatives — social, political, economic and technological — already exist, and what further innovations can we generate?

Proposals are welcome from various disciplines, on themes including but not limited to:
computation for social, gaming and information networks;
participation and engagement;
legacy media in perpetual ‘crisis’;
social-media institutions and platforms;
pedagogy in and beyond media studies.

The CCML is seeking to develop models for participatory research and universal access. Alongside the conference, the centre will host a parallel event, based on universal design, for maximum participation from communities that are often excluded from academic events.

Abstracts and panel proposals, of no more than 250 words in length, should be sent to *(deborah.brennan /at/ <mailto:(deborah.brennan /at/>* by July 15th, 2018.
