Subject: call for papers - Media Consumers: Consuming Subjects

Dear Colleagues, 

Please see below...

Regards,
Agnes Gulyas



Call for papers
Media Consumers:
Consuming Subjects
A one day conference 22 May 2009
What is the status of the media consumer in multinational, corporate,
and internet mediated society?
We are told that our subjective points of view matter - in phone-ins,
opinion polls, blogs, wikis, chat rooms and elections - yet society is
increasingly professionalised, industrialised and massified.
One-to-one communication is growing, but is the one-to-many model of
mass communication still the norm?
It is still possible to be an individual - but a century of philosophy
and theory has described him or her as alienated, ego/id, case history,
problem, deconstructed, outsider, cyborg, and post-human.
Where does a media consumer go from here?

We invite 250 word abstracts for 20 minute papers - in the fields of the
arts and humanities, from theoretical, practical and/or
transdisciplinary perspectives - that interrogate these concepts,
including but not limited to:
* What is the relationship between the individual and media
organisations in today's media environment?
* Citizen versus consumer: do the two complement each other?
* Is there a crisis of the subject in the postmodern era?
* Is there such a thing as 'society' in Web 2.0 networks such as
Facebook, LiveJournal, Bebo and beyond?
* How is the individual represented in film, TV, radio, broadcasting,
drama, journalism, and other media?
* How far does the media permit free speech and feedback?
* How is the credit crisis impacting on the consuming subject in the
market-driven economy?
* Is information now more valuable than knowledge?
* Where is the body and the other located in the hybridized worlds of
digital media?

Abstracts should be sent to
