Post-Representative Participations: Engaging with Civic Action in the Times of Digital Citizenship

The Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association’s Postgraduate Network (MeCCSA PGN), the Participatory Communication Research (PCR) section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), and the Centre for Digital Media Cultures, University of Brighton invites postgraduate students, early-career researchers, filmmakers, civil society members and activists to submit proposals for our joint one-day conference at University of Brighton.

The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for the critical dialogue between Participatory Communication Research communities and media practitioners (such as activists, filmmakers etc.) to examine the issues of social, political and cultural change in the times of digital media, giving a particular focus on ‘digital citizenship’. It also aims to bring together international academics and media practitioners to explore the creative participatory methods. We are keen to involve not only academic presentations, but also workshops and film screenings by media practitioners at the event, giving them the chance to present their work, ideas and practices to an international audience.

“New perspectives on data”, SMiDs årsmöte 2018.

Digital technology has changed the relationships between media and communication researchers and their data. The collecting, storing, and handling of data have always been subject to changing definitions and theorizations, but with the “digital turn” these changes are more prominent than before. Thus, with digitalization, “old” media as well as “new” exist in novel configurations of technology, production, and usage, and these processes influence the ways researchers collect, engage with, and communicate empirical material. Even though phenomena such as “big data” and datafication are important in this development with their emphasis on large datasets and quantification, the digital turn also influences qualitative research that relies on, for example, interviews, ethnography, discourse analysis, etc. Not everything is digital, and analogue and electronic materials remain important to media research. However, the change in materiality that follows from digitization transforms infrastructures and tools for researchers to engage with their data.

Music and the Sacred

In the conference, the aim is to address the various ways in which music intersects with sacred phenomena, and vice versa.
