    Tiziano Bonini, Emiliano Treré

    Tiziano Bonini and Emiliano Treré's new book is out: Algorithms of Resistance. The Everyday Fight against Platform Power, open access thanks to MIT Press and Direct to Open: https://shorturl.at/deLVW

    *************

    DESCRIPTION:

    Algorithms of Resistance (MIT Press, 2024) is an inquiry into agency in the age of Artificial intelligence and algorithmic governance of work, culture and politics. The book describes how global workers, influencers, and activists develop tactics of algorithmic resistance by appropriating and repurposing the same algorithms that control our lives.

    The authors begin by outlining their key theoretical framework of moral economies, arguing that algorithms exist on a continuum. At its two extremes are two competing moral economies: the user moral economy and the platform moral economy. From here, Algorithms of Resistance chronicles the various inventive ways that individuals can work to achieve agency and resist the ubiquitous power of algorithms. Drawing from rich ethnographic materials and perspectives from both the Global North and South, Bonini and Treré reveal the moral imperative for all of us—from delivery drivers to artists to social movements—to resist algorithms.

    ***********

    PRAISE:

    “Bonini and Treré's superb analysis of how users struggle with algorithmic power is a wonderful guide to the dynamics that animate the platform ecosystem. Essential reading for anyone interested in the sociotechnical processes of contemporary media.”

    (José van Dijck, Distinguished Professor of Media and Digital Societies, Utrecht University; author of The Culture of Connectivity; coauthor of The Platform Society)

    “A celebration of human agency and resilience in the face of an ever-more pervasive algorithmic culture. Bonini and Treré analyze the many ways that resistance is possible.”

    (William Uricchio, Professor, Comparative Media Studies, MIT; coauthor of Collective Wisdom)

    “Based on rich field work, digital ethnography, and interviews in India, China, Mexico, Italy, and Spain, this book provides a deeply insightful exploration of how gig workers, creators, and activists tactically engage with platform algorithms.”

    (Thomas Poell, Professor of Data, Culture & Institutions, University of Amsterdam; coauthor of The Platform Society and Platforms and Cultural Production)

    Journal of Advertising (Special Issue)

    Deadline: March 31, 22024

    Detailed information can be found here.

    Developments in digital technologies have greatly transformed the landscape of advertising around the world. The technical possibilities and low costs of collection and processing of consumer data have led to the domination of the landscape by digital data-driven advertising (e.g., personalized advertising, social media advertising, computational advertising, programmatic advertising, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered advertising).

    Given the centrality of consumer data in advertising practices and increasing amounts of surveillance both online and offline, this special issue seeks to publish innovative papers that examine the theoretical and managerial implications of surveillance and ethics in advertising. Our hope is to stimulate further research in this area. This special issue also responds to broader calls for a more diverse and contemporary development of advertising theory. We encourage submissions from multidisciplinary research teams bringing together different perspectives on the topic, as well as (comparative) research focusing on non-WEIRD countries (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic). 

    Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Theoretical frameworks to study (new) ethical & surveillance questions
    • Consumer perspectives on and perceptions of surveillance
    • Consumer vulnerability, stereotyping, and social sorting
    • Privacy concerns and privacy cynicism related to surveillance and ethics
    • Transparency and information asymmetry
    • Consumer empowerment, agency, and autonomy
    • Impact of surveillance on consumer well-being
    • Chilling effects and its implications for advertisers
    • Industry perspectives on surveillance and ethics
    • Consensual advertising models
    • Ethics-washing
    • Environmental impacts of dataveillance
    • The role and responsibilities of the tech industry
    • Ethical questions related to the affordances of new technologies
    • Power relations between stakeholders
    • Fairness in data-driven advertising and algorithmic persuasion
    • Technological solutions (e.g., blockchain)
    • Regulatory solutions (e.g., blacklists)
    • The regulatory perspective on surveillance and ethics
    • New methods to study surveillance and ethics (e.g., data donation studies, computational approaches)

    Submission deadline: March 31, 2024

    Any questions about the Special Section can be sent to the guest editors: Drs. Claire M. Segijn, Joanna Strycharz, and Sophie C. Boerman at surveillanceJA@gmail.com.  

    Please consider contributing to this Special Issue and help spread the word among your colleagues.

    Far Right Fictions (Special issue)

    Deadline: March 15, 2023

    As part of the research project ‘Far Right Fictions’, based at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and headed by Professors Joke Bauwens, Benjamin De Cleen and Kevin Smets, we are currently compiling a special issue proposal on ‘The Far Right and Audiovisual Fiction’. A leading journal in the field of media and communication studies has already indicated a keen interest in our idea and we are looking for a number of additional contributors before we submit the final proposal. 

    Our special issue looks to close a gap in existing research by looking at the role audiovisual fiction (film, TV series, computer games) plays in the (online) lives of people with far-right leanings. Our proposed special issue will explore the ways in which reactionary, far-right actors engage with audiovisual fiction and the diverse ideological and strategic reasons for doing so. We aim to bring together scholars from critical, media, cultural and far right studies, working with empirical data from diverse geographical locations, to understand the multifaceted ways in which the far right interacts with audiovisual fiction. We are particularly interested in contributions that address one or more of the following topics: 

    • The world of far-right influencers and audiovisual fiction; 
    • The role of audiovisual fiction in online far-right communities;
    • Far-right critique of audiovisual fiction;
    • Far-right audiences and far right fandom;
    • The appropriation of audiovisual motifs and imagery in far-right strategy and campaigning;
    • The use of audiovisual fiction as a medium to disseminate far-right ideas; 
    • The use of audiovisual fiction to legitimise far-right ideas and/or delegitimise the status-quo; 
    • The way in which far right engagement with audiovisual fiction differs from and/or resembles other audiences.

    We naturally welcome any other ideas that shed light on the role of audiovisual fiction on the far right. Should you be interested in contributing to our proposed special issue, please send a 300-400 word abstract (with references) to omran.shroufi@vub.be by Friday 15 March 2024. Please note we can only accept abstracts that directly engage with audiovisual fiction, rather than with popular culture or digital media more generally.

    Once we have selected contributions, we will be submitting a complete proposal to a prominent peer-review journal that has already indicated an interest in our topic.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Omran Shroufi omran.shroufi@vub.be

    We look forward to receiving your abstract.

    #TRIPODOS56

    Deadline: March 31, 2024

    Expected publication: Autumn 2024

    Guest editors: Cyril Hovorun

    Since February 24th 2022, the global mediatic and political attention is focused in Ukraine. The Russian attack started a war in which both countries are still involved. This conflict, in which NATO members are supporting Ukraine, represents the main step of a new Russian expansionism (Zubok, 2023). However, Vladimir Putin’s plans are not new (Grigas, 2016). Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine have been in conflict since 2014, and it seems that this is not the only objective in the Russian’s president's ideas (Atlantic Council, 2022). Considering the situation, Russia is nowadays in the eye of international relations and international media, as this conflict seems to build a New Iron Curtain in the world (Marcau, 2022).

    Tripodos issue 56 aims to delve into the past, present and future of the global situation looking at this new Russian neo-imperialism through the lens of communication but also through a deep international relations’ analysis. For this reason, we invite scholars working in the areas of international politics, conflict analysis, conflict narratives, journalism, digital media, to send their manuscripts. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

    - Putin’s geostrategy

    - Narratives about the Russia-Ukraine conflict

    - Reporting on the War: coverage analysis

    - The New Cold War

    - Censorship and freedom of press in Russia

    - Historical evolution of the Russian geostrategy since the collapse of the USSR

    Submission

    Papers should be sent by March 31, 2024. In order to submit original papers, authors must be registered with the journal (www.tripodos.com) as authors. Following this step, authors must enter their user name and password, activated in the process of registering, and begin the submission process. In step 1, they must select the section “Monograph”.

    Rules and instructions regarding the submission of originals can be downloaded at www.tripodos.com.

    For any queries, please contact the editorial team of the journal at tripodos@blanquerna.url.edu. The issue will be entirely in English.

    University of Ljubljana

    Deadline: March 17, 2024

    Pre-conference to the 10th European Communication Conference

    With the endorsement of the ECREA Journalism Studies Section

    Conference Topic

    AI, algorithms, and automation are increasingly becoming part of newsrooms, influencing nearly every aspect of journalism (Cools, 2022; Zamith, 2020). Both the pervasiveness (Thurman, Lewis & Kunert, 2019) of these innovative tools and their disruptive potential in restructuring news work and professional roles become central elements worth studying (Lewis et al., 2019). Even more so as the pervasiveness of automation entails new relational dynamics in the newsroom (Wu, Tandoc & Salmon, 2019), but also with the audience (van Dalen, 2012), and other intermediaries and tech companies. This process leads to creating a new hybrid scenario (Porlezza & Di Salvo, 2020), where the boundaries of journalism are increasingly contested, and new skills and competencies are required. In this context, journalists are forced to renegotiate their communicative space as news work is confronted with shifting human-machine relationships that could result in ‘shared decision-making’ between the ‘human’ and ‘the machine’. Similarly, AI, algorithms, and automation also lead to new actor categories and professional roles such as programmers, designers, legal, and cybersecurity experts, both internal and external to media organizations. These changes entail both opportunities and challenges regarding journalistic relevance and authority (Amigo et al., 2023; Carlson, 2015; Wu et al., 2019), the internal organization of newsrooms (Thurman, Dörr & Kunert, 2017), and ethical (Porlezza & Ferri, 2021) as well as governance issues (Porlezza, 2023).

    The pre-conference aims to explore new AI actor constellations in the journalism field to identify central players and map new interrelations, power imbalances, new dependencies, potential instances of boundary crossing, or even dissolving boundaries in the wider journalistic field. Overall, the pre-conference aims at overcoming newsroom-centered perspectives on the design and use of AI in journalism by focusing on emerging actors such as tech companies as well as intermediaries, who exert an increasing social and economic influence on journalism and the news industry (Simon, 2022). The pervasiveness of AI in the whole news cycle and the restricted capacity to develop AI systems on their own is likely to increase the news media’s dependence on tech and platform companies, challenging not only journalism’s autonomy, but also the news-making process itself in terms of shifting practices, roles, and an ethical as well as responsible design and adoption of these systems. Such an approach aims at challenging predefined conceptions about the impact of AI in the news while expanding our understanding of how the technology reshapes actor-related questions about autonomy, dependence, and governance:

    Submissions may focus on - but are by no means limited to - the following themes and perspectives:

     What kind of actor constellations (within and outside the news organization) deal with AI systems and their development and/or implementation?

    Which actors are involved, what kind of roles do they have, and how are they contributing to the development/implementation processes regarding AI systems?

    What kind of AI literacy skills and competencies are required to navigate a datafied media environment?

    What kind of practices, skills, and knowledge are involved?

    How are ethical issues dealt with in such an AI actor constellation?

    What kind of governance structures are needed to avoid power imbalances?

    Different types of submissions are possible. You can submit a traditional research talk on one of the pre-conference topics, but you can also submit “work-in-progress” contributions on research projects that are still in progress. For those, the conference provides an opportunity to discuss questions about their theoretical and methodological approach, research design, data collection as well as other matters of interest.

    The pre-conference would like to bring together researchers from different backgrounds. Experts from outside academia are also welcome, particularly to foster the discussion between scholars and practitioners on central actors when it comes to the implementation of AI in journalism. In addition, we specifically encourage submissions from young and emerging scholars, particularly from the YECREA network.

    When submitting, please note

    The conference will be held in English.

     Speakers are expected to be present. Virtual presentations are not possible.

    Submissions have to be in English and should be submitted as a .pdf file.

    Please state whether your contribution is a research talk or a work-in-progress talk.

    Please indicate whether the first author is a PhD student.

    The abstracts should include the main idea/argument, research questions, theoretical perspectives and/or information on methodology and empirical findings (if relevant).

    What, where, and when to submit

    • Abstracts of no more than 500 words (references excluded) should be sent to aiactorconstellations@gmail.com by 17 March 2024, 23:59 (Central European Time)
    • All submitted abstracts will undergo a review. Acceptance notifications will be sent out on March 31, 2024.
    • Deadline for confirmation of participation is April 10, 2024.

    The pre-conference will take place on September 24, 2024, at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana. More information can be found at: https://ecrea2024journalismai.wordpress.com/

    The conference fee will be kept to a minimum, with lower prices for PhD students in part-time positions. Participants with special needs are kindly asked to get in touch with the organizers.

The conference will examine Hollywood films by expatriate directors, German films based on American literary works, and American films based on German literary works, including remakes and international co-productions from the early twentieth to the twenty-first century. Particular attention will be given to émigré and exiled directors, stars, and crews of the Pre- and Post-World-War years, to the Junger/Neuer Deutscher Film of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, but also to contemporary co-productions and international blockbusters. We welcome proposals addressing the manifold forms that adaptation can take in order to reflect on its discursive effects on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

    - The “literary canon” of US-Mitteleuropean cinematic adaptation (Eric Maria Remarque, Patricia Highsmith, Vera Caspary, James L. Cain, etc.)

    - Adaptation and expatriate directors (Michael Curtiz, Fritz Lang, Ernst Lubitsch, Otto Preminger, Robert Siodmark, Douglas Sirk, Erich von Stroheim, Josef von Sternberg, Billy Wilder, Fred Zinnemann, etc.)

    - Adaptation and the Junger/Neuer Deutscher Film (Schlöndorff, Fassbinder, Wenders, etc.)

    - Audiovisual translation as adaptation

    - Post-adaptation effects: paratexts (book packaging: retitling, book covers, etc.) and reception (book reviews, etc.)

    - The mediating role of authors/scriptwriters/producers/actors in the adaptation process

    - Adaptation and film genres

    - Adaptation and film remakes

    - Adaptation and film scores

    - Adaptation and place: the double careers of expatriate/international stars

    - International co-productions (Wes Anderson, Wolfgang Petersen, Tom Tykwer, etc.)

    August 21-22, 2024

    Gothenburg (Sweden)

    Deadline: May 31, 2024

    Publishing in international journals is a given for researchers. Nevertheless, it can often be difficult to get an overview of the range of journals and to understand the different steps involved in the publication process. There are many pieces that need to be in place before a manuscript reaches its readers. Among other things, there is a review process where you – as a scholar – make sure that another’s manuscript meets the highest standards of scientific quality.  

    To help sort things out, Nordicom is organising a workshop on academic journal publishing. The workshop is aimed at doctoral students in journalism, media and communication studies, and related subjects in the Nordic countries, and the goal is to give participants a thorough orientation in the academic publishing process. The main points of the workshop are: 

    • The publishing landscape: What does it look like, and how do you select a journal to submit your work to? 
    • Preparing a manuscript for submission: Why is it essential to be nitty gritty with references, language, formatting, etc., and what can you do to make it less tedious? 
    • Writing a good review: What makes a good review and how do you succeed in writing one? 
    • Receiving reviews of your work: How do you make sense of reviews, and how should you respond to them? 

    The workshop includes presentations from Nordicom's experienced editors and exercises where participants get feedback from other participants as well as Nordicom’s editors. 

    Prior to the workshop, all participants will be given exercises to do on their own, which will then be followed up on during the workshop that takes place 21–22 August in Nordicom's premises in Gothenburg. 

    The workshop corresponds to 3 ECTS credits. After completing the workshop, all participants will receive a certificate if they have done the preparatory exercises and participated throughout the workshop.

    University of Bologna (Italy)

    Deadline: February 29, 2024

     5th Media Mutations Conference

    Organized by Paola Brembilla and Marco Cucco (Università di Bologna), Christopher Meir (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid)

    Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Courtney Brannon Donoghue (University of North Texas) 

    In an age defined by digital transformation and the global circulation of cultural products, intellectual property has assumed a central role in shaping the landscape of media industries.  From film and television to music, literature, and beyond, the management and governance of intellectual property are pivotal to the production, distribution, and reception of creative content.

    Intellectual property (as expressed and protected by copyrights, trademarks, patents, etc.) encompasses the intangible assets that form the foundation of creative and cultural expression in the media industries. IPs are the driving force behind the economic vitality of media sectors, influencing revenue streams, market dynamics, and business models. Politically, they are subject to complex legal frameworks, international agreements, and debates about access and regulation, making them a powerful instrument for shaping the global media landscape. Narratively, they are the building blocks of captivating stories, beloved characters, and transformative storytelling experiences. Culturally, they define the identity of societies, influence social norms, and play pivotal roles in fostering dialogue, reflecting diversity, and preserving heritage.

    The International Conference Media Mutations 15 – The Matter of Intellectual Property invites scholars, researchers, and practitioners to explore and engage with the multifaceted dimensions of intellectual property and specific intellectual properties in media industries. This conference aims to foster a comprehensive dialogue that analyzes both the economic and legal aspects of the concept but that also delves into the political and cultural dimensions of intellectual property management. 

    In our pursuit of a deeper understanding of intellectual property management in media industries, we encourage collaboration across diverse academic disciplines. Intellectual property is a multifaceted field, and its management touches upon economics, law, political science, cultural studies, and more. We seek to bring together scholars and researchers from these various disciplines to evaluate how different research methods can be brought together to generate new insights, approaches and collaborations. Through this interdisciplinary exchange, we can address the complex challenges and opportunities that intellectual properties present in media and work collectively toward holistic solutions to the problems found in the media industries.

    Acknowledging the global nature of media and cultural exchange, this conference also emphasizes the need to explore intellectual property management practices, policies, and challenges from diverse regions around the world, in order to shed light on the nuances and variations that exist in IP management on a global scale. For instance, we are interested in how global phenomena (such as that of the Korean Wave) exemplify how effective intellectual property management can lead to economic growth, cultural diplomacy, and a global presence for emerging economies. How does the strategic management of IPs contribute to the global recognition and commercial success of these emerging cultural forces?

    Media Mutations 15 encourages submissions that use diverse approaches and methodologies, such as:

    The Economy of Intellectual Properties:

    ·   IP management and business models.

    ·   Monetization strategies, royalties, and revenue distribution.

    ·   The role of intellectual property in investment and financing.

    ·   Corporate strategies and ownership.

    ·   Market trends, consumer behavior, and the economics of content creation.

    The Politics of Intellectual Property:

    ·   Copyright law, trademark, and patent regulation in the media sector.

    ·   Policy-making, international agreements, and their implications.

    ·   Intellectual property enforcement.

    ·   Ethical considerations in IP governance.

    ·   The politics of open access, open source, and public domain.

    The Cultural Aspects of Specific Intellectual Properties:

    ·  Cultural impact, diversity, and representation in IP management.

    · Opportunities and problems of IPs in preserving and promoting cultural heritage.

    ·  The relationship between IPs and creative freedom.

    ·  Fan cultures, remix culture, and participatory media in the digital age.

    ·  Franchise storytelling and IPs in the convergence era.

    The official language of the conference is English. Abstracts (300-500 words for 20-minute talks) should be sent to submissions@mediamutations.org by February 29th, 2024. Please attach a short biography (maximum 150 words) and an optional selected bibliography (up to five titles) relevant to the conference theme. The conference will be in person, with no option for remote presentation. Notification of acceptance will be sent by March 18th, 2024. A registration fee will be requested after notification of paper acceptance (€80 for speakers and professional attendants).

    This Conference is promoted by the Media Mutations Association and financially supported by DAMSLab, Dipartimento delle Arti, Università di Bologna, the Master in Management del Cinema e dell’Audiovisivo (Università di Bologna), and The Academy of Korean Studies, in collaboration with Centro Dipartimentale La Soffitta.

    The Conference is sponsored by the Film Studies Section and the Television Studies Section of ECREA.
