EXTENDED DEADLINE

CFP MeCCSA PGN Conference 2015

Deadline: Monday 23rd of March 2015

'Transformative Practice and Theory: where we stand today'

 

Pre-Conference Screening of Oscar Award Winning Documentary CitizenFour on the 1st of July

​

The multidisciplinary fields of media, communication and culture face the challenge of constantly responding to the changing landscape which they study. In recent years, these fields have shifted considerably due to the rise in digital and open media, which have opened up new spaces for debate. Our negotiation with, and use of, theory has been transformed through the turn to affect, and the ways in which we are now articulating the relationship between bodies, images and environments as permeable and interconnected. Practice has also been transformed, as engagement with what were traditionally more “static” objects has been affected due to the disrupted power relations between producer and consumer, allowing for further engagement beyond production.

In response to these changes our conference focuses on unique approaches to review the way pre-existing notions, ideas and practices in research can be reimagined. We want to promote how the use of creative and original ways of research enables the reframing of traditional ideas to fit with the needs of today. Invited speakers will contribute by sharing how their own work pushes the potentials of theory and practice in the contexts of visual and sensory culture, data subjects and open access scholarship.
 
We invite early career academics, Masters and PhD students to share their work and contribute to the MeCCSA PGN 2015 conference. All contributions which fall within the theme of ‘Transformative Practice and Theory: where we stand today’ will be considered; topics for presentations might include (but are not limited to):
