[ecrea] CFP - LaborComm 2016 - The 7th International Labor and Communication Conference

Fri Dec 25 23:10:12 GMT 2015

LaborComm 2016
The 7th International Labor and Communication Conference
7-8 May 2016, Ankara-Turkey

As a part of the Eleventh International Labor Film & Video Festival,
The 7th International Labor and Communication Conference, intended to
bring together scholars and activists working on labor and communication
issues, will be held on 7-8 May in Ankara-Turkey.


Nowadays analyses, both on the Internet and the social transformation
mediated through the Internet, are still centered around discussions on
“promises”. Although this framework of academic inquiry on delivered and
undelivered promises contributed to the creation of a very large
literature and substantial amount of critics, it is insufficient for a
truly critical and comprehensive understanding of our conditions. Given
that the Internet has become a global communication system, it is
extremely important to reconsider social transformation and the Internet
in order to achieve a critical and comprehensive understanding.
LaborComm 2016 aims to produce a critical and comprehensive knowledge of
our time, to create projections for the emancipation of labor and the
necessary praxis for the fulfillment of these projections. To do so, it
welcomes your contributions. Possible topics include (but are not
limited to):

* Political economy of the Internet and networks
* Technology and labor processes
* New conceptualizations on labor and labor processes (such as digital
labor, audience labor, prosumer, prosumption)
* Existing or potential impacts of information and communication
technologies on production processes
* Labor organizations and new forms of organization based on technology
