Call for papers ? special issue International Journal Obs*
Networked belonging and networks of belonging

Convenors: Manuel José Damásio & Paula Cordeiro

The Task Force on Networked belonging and networks of belonging of COST Action IS0906 invites abstract submissions for a special issue of the International Journal Obs* on networked media and spaces of interaction and participation. The group has broad interests in the role networked media play in the spheres of communication, interaction, mediation processes and identity. Networks represent a core set of resources in our society, while at the same time subjects are daily confronted with original forms of experience that call for our participation and involvement with networked supported practices. Networks though stand at the same time for the infrastructural form of media organization, a set of resources at the subjects? disposal and a manifestation of contemporary experience that impels relations to the center of subjectivity and identity.

We invite submissions on the following themes:

- What are the ways audiences interact with networks in the contexts of mobile access and provision of services?

- How does sense of belonging develop in function of networks models?

- What?s the implications networked based practices have for individual identity and privacy?

- How are networked media changing modes of participation and engagement for audiences?

- Do audiences use networked media to promote new forms of societal organization and cohesion?

- What forms of political and social organization, participation and engagement are emerging in Europe around networked media?

- How are traditional media (i.e television) converging to the networked environment in different European countries?

- Do mobile networks represent original social arrangements around networks?

- How are the roles of the producers and the consumer structured in networked media?
