CALL FOR PAPERS

SURVEILLANCE, ENCRYPTION AND PRIVACY
Special issue of “Mediatization Studies”
Guest editors: Dr. Jakub Nowak (University Marie-Curie Skłodowska Lublin),
Dr. Johanna E. Möller (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz)

For a special issue of the peer-reviewed and open-access journal
“Mediatization Studies”, we invite proposals referring to “Surveillance,
encryption and privacy in the digital age”. The focus is on submissions
considering the inter-connected issues of surveillance, encryption,
privacy, data protection as well as digital technology design, definition,
development and regulation. Papers by young researchers, that is, post
doctoral and doctoral researchers, from Europe, are very welcome.

The special issue is linked to a workshop with politicians and NGO
representatives from Poland and Germany that engage in issues related to
surveillance, privacy and encryption. Interested authors of accepted
abstracts, especially young researchers, will be invited to participate in
a two-day session to present and discuss their work. The workshop will
take place in March 2018 in Lublin (Poland). Following the workshop, full
papers will be submitted and peer-revised.


THEME

This call for papers invites contributions by researchers interested in
surveillance, encryption, and privacy considering political implications
of media and media infrastructures. Facing an increasingly complex set of
phenomena summing up to mediatization of all spheres of people’s lives,
sometimes dubbed “deep mediatization”, we acknowledge the growing role of
digital technology in how we participate in social collectivities,
cultures, or politics nowadays. As digital technology provides us with
tools and increasingly with spaces for everyday action, it has become
political in every respect. This is why we attach great importance to how
technology is designed, discursively defined, produced, and, not least,
regulated. Being faced with raising concerns on how people’s private data
is aggregated, stored, exchanged, and used for political, economic, and
academic purposes, we want to pay closer attention to the political
implications of digital technology.

We are interested in submissions covering these issues, including topics
like:

•	Information access and control in digital infrastructures: concepts,
debates, and agents (state, market, societal) involved
•	Practical aspects (policies, practices, regulations) of surveillance,
encryption and privacy
•	State and market policies/regulations of surveillance
•	Technology-related concepts of surveillance, privacy and encryption
•	Tactical responses to surveillance in the fields of technology design
and usage
•	Political aspects of designing data protection technologies: the fields
of technology design, policy (regulations), media practices and
technological solutions
•	Discursive position of surveillance nowadays and (counter-)discourses of
digital privacy and data protection
•	Particular, Polish, German, or Polish-German comparative perspectives on
surveillance, encryption and privacy.


PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Peer-review follows a two-step procedure. In a first step, we accept
extended abstract submissions until January 15th, 2018.

Submissions should include:
1)	extended abstract of the paper with a clear outline of its argument,
not exceeding 1.000 words (except literature)
2)	author’s current affiliation, academic position (PhD student, post-doc,
or other)
3)	address and contact information.
Please send your extended abstract to [log in to unmask]

In a second step, we will invite selected authors to submit full papers
until April 15, 2018. Submissions must consider the following guidelines:
http://journals.umcs.pl/ms/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions
Accepted papers will be published in 2018 in the open-access,
peer-reviewed “Mediatization Studies” journal (ISSN: 2451-1188), published
by the Faculty of Political Science of Marie Curie-Skłodowska University
in Lublin. It covers theoretical ideas and research results on various
aspects of mediatization. See: http://journals.umcs.pl/ms. There will be
no publication fee.

Authors of selected abstracts, especially young researchers, are invited
to participate in a workshop on surveillance, encryption, and privacy
issues that will take place in Lublin in March 2018. Beyond networking and
exchange with politicians and NGO members, the meeting in Lublin will be a
forum of a peer-feedback during which all paper-proposals can be discussed
before authors submit final versions of their work. Submitting a paper
without attending the workshop is possible. Participation in the workshop
does not necessarily imply publication in the special issue.

Both, special issue and workshop, are part of a Polish-German research
project, “Surveillance and Privacy in the Digital Age”, funded by the
Polish-German Foundation for Science. The project is a cooperation between
the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz and Maria Curie-Skłodowska
University in Lublin.


TIME-LINE

Abstract submissions: January 15th, 2018
Notification of abstract acceptance: January 31st 2018
Workshop in Lublin (paper presentation and discussion): March 1-2nd  2018
Submission of full papers: April 15th, 2018
Notifications of full paper acceptance: August 2018.
