1st CEIVINDICO INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: Challenges to European Identities
and Values in Digital Communities

The CEIVINDICO research group, funded through the European network of
universities UNA Europa, is pleased to announce the 1st CEIVINDICO
International Conference, which will be taking place in a hybrid format on
the 12th – 13th of May, 2022.

We envisage this conference as a rather casual encounter that aims to foster
discussion around two central topics: digital communities and four social
phenomena at the kernel of the European Union these days:

(a) gender equality,

(b) LGBTQI+ rights,

(c) an inclusive EU citizenship that confronts populisms, and

(d) climate change and sustainability

Aligned with our global mission, we are looking for submissions that fall
within the following general objectives:

1) explorations of the role of digital communities in the creation,
reproduction and perpetuation of social discourses that pose challenges to
core European values and identities, with an emphasis on gender equality,
LGBTQI+ rights, an inclusive EU citizenship and climate change,

2) research around the impact of online multimodal discourse and
communication within digital communities as the fabric of many of the
challenges faced by the EU these days,

3) examinations of how digital communities and digital communication foster
individual and social alienation in the digital age, prompted by the
ecosystems created in online contexts that frequently rely on misinformation,
fake news or unchecked facts.

We particularly welcome early career researchers to submit their proposals.
In the attempt to encourage closer exchanges of knowledge, the final amount
of accepted proposals will not exceed 30. Additionally, and thanks to the
funding we have allocated for this, we will be selecting a number of papers
to create a cohesive, open access, special issue linked to the central issues
in the conference.


Proposals for presentations should be submitted in the form of an abstract
(500 words max., including references). Presentations (either online or
face-to-face) will last around 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for
questions and feedback.

Although the working language of the conference will be English, we are keen
on receiving proposals that explore digital communities that operate in
different languages, especially those used in the European Union (with an
emphasis on Spanish, Italian, Romanian, Finnish, Polish and Russian, that is,
some of the languages we are familiar with in the organising team).

Abstracts are expected to outline the main research question(s) and
hypotheses, as well as clear objectives, methods, data and expected results.
Please make sure abstracts are fully anonymised in the body of text.
Therefore, remove the author’s name from the title and/or in the
