*Call for Papers - (In)Equalities and Social (In)Visibilities in the Digital Age – Journal Interações*

The influence of new technologies in public and private spheres of society, rather than a reformulation, has given rise to a new social field and directly interferes with how we perceive the world, relate to it and others. In Pierre Bourdieu's (2001) theory, field arises as a configuration of socially distributed relations.

Progressively, a universe of socialization has emerged and consolidated: cyberspace. Although virtual, it exists and produces effects. It can be defined as the space boosted by the different digital communication platforms and assumes itself as an individual communication model, allowing the receiver to be simultaneously emitter. Space of flows (Castells, 1996), cyberspace translates the social dimension of the Internet enabling the diffusion of communication/information on a global scale. This causes an intense process of inclusion and exclusion of people in the network.

The reference to info-inclusive and info-excluded societies of the digital scenario is imperative when it is reflected in the geography of the new socio-technological spaces. The dynamics of these territories are directly associated with the way social, demographic, economic and technological variables condition each other, revealing the potential for dissemination of information and knowledge through technologies.

In this special issue of the journal Interações we propose a reflection on (In)Equalities and Social (In)Visibilities in the Digital Age. Unpublished works that present research results and/or theoretical reflection on this theme are accepted (although this special issue is not limited to these topics):

- Digital and social and economic inequalities in different geographical contexts;
- Promoting equality by digital;
- Visibilities and social invisible created by movements of exclusion or social inclusion, digital, media, economic, etc.;
- Invisible social groups in the digital age;
- Digital literacy and vulnerable social groups;
- Digital as a geographical barrier;
- Conditioning created by technology to the individual in a social context.

Deadline for submission of articles: June 25
Notification of acceptance: July 10
Publication: July 31

The articles must be sent via email:(interacoes /at/ <mailto:(interacoes /at/>

Any questions should be addressed to the same email.
