Anthropology Network Workshop "The Digital Turn in Media Anthropology"

is getting closer (see details below).

All the best,

Philipp, Sahana and Elisabetta

Abstract

By building on the Media Anthropology Network panel at the EASA 2018 
conference in Stockholm and the follow-up e-seminar from 16 Oct. - 9 
Nov. 2018  (http://www.media-anthropology.net/index.php/e-seminars), 
this workshop critically explores “the digital turn” in the 
anthropological study of media, and aims to push further ethnographic 
knowledge into the role that digital media technologies play in people's 
everyday life and broader sociopolitical transformations. In so doing, 
this workshop contributes to the reassessment of media anthropology in 
digital times, and raises critical questions on how digital media have 
posed new epistemological challenges, inspired methodological 
innovations, and offered opportunities for political activism for media 
anthropologists. A key question that drives this discussion is whether 
the digital turn has reconfigured the classic distinction between “home” 
and “field” through temporally intensified “horizontal” networks on a 
global scale. Have these connections – culturally translated across 
different societies – collapsed the distinction between “home” and 
“field”? As users and researchers of digital media, how do we rework 
anthropology’s classic conundrum of home-field, distance-nearness and 
us-other in radically progressive ways? What does the “digital turn” 
entail in terms of how we engage research participants, and how do we 
use these new pathways to critique the multidirectional “colonial matrix 
of power” (Mignalo & Walsh, 2007) that is riding on the very 
infrastructure of contemporary digital media?

We invite scholars to engage with these questions through various topic 
fields they are researching, and consider this reflexive move as an 
important step towards challenging “the global fact” of racial, gender, 
ethnic and religion-based exclusions. We also invite scholars to bring 
cases of innovative use of digital research to overcome prevailing 
hierarchies in anthropological knowledge production – between 
researchers and research participants, as well as within the academic 
community.

Drawing from their own research, and from their engagement with relevant 
literature, workshop participants will ask the following questions:

What is the present state of anthropological study on digital media 
technologies and their impact on culture and society?
What are the main questions in need of urgent research (especially in 
connection to decolonizing media/digital anthropology, gender, 
visuality, extreme movements and speech)?
How have digital technologies transformed (media) anthropology and how 
does the future look for media anthropologists?
What is the role of digital technology in transforming knowledge 
production and dissemination in media anthropology?
How can anthropologists contribute to the interdisciplinary effort of 
theorizing digital media practices and digital technologies?
Who will be the main beneficiaries of this research, both in academia 
and beyond?

We invite ethnographic and/or theoretical papers that focus on the above 
questions.

Participants who need travel support to attend the workshop are invited 
to mention the same (limited financial support is available for travel 
and accommodation).

*In a single word document, please send your abstracts of 1000 words and 
a short bio (100 words) stating your current affiliation, mentioning 
whether you are an EASA member.*
Please use the filename format: authorlastname_digitalturnworkshop2019, 
and send this *no later than 1 June 2019* to 
[log in to unmask]

Selected participants will be notified by 30 June 2019. EASA members 
will get the first preference in travel bursaries.
