Call For Papers

2016 Special Focus: Communication & Media Studies: After the Internet?

The ‘Internet age’ has come to frame the dominant challenges in contemporary communication and media studies. There is a growing movement, emerging from the theory and practices of digital art, asserting that we might be entering a ‘Post-Internet’ Era. The argument is not that the Internet age is ‘over’, but that its current ubiquity and normalcy demands a rethinking of the media and mediations of the Internet in our everyday lives.

What are the challenges of communication and media studies After the Internet?' Is After the Internet a useful analytical category? At a more general socio-historical level, what happens when ‘new’ media becomes ‘old’ media? How do we frame media and communication legacies: material legacies found in media objects, and immaterial legacies in grammars of analytical and everyday communication?

In addition, we also welcome proposals for presentations related to the following themes:
Media Cultures
Media Theory
Media Technologies and Processes
Media Business
Media Literacies
