O3C: Improving the Health of Our Online Civic Culture
Established in 2018 with an award from Loughborough University's Adventure Research Programme, the Online Civic Culture Centre (O3C) applies concepts and methods from social science and information science to understand the role of social media in shaping our civic culture. Led by Professor Andrew Chadwick it includes a doctoral training programme consisting of a team of ten academic supervisors drawn from the disciplines of communication, information science, social psychology, and sociology. The CDT enables interdisciplinary teams of researchers and PhD students to work together on issues of misinformation, disinformation, and the rise of hate speech and intolerance online. It develops evidence-based knowledge to mitigate the democratically-dysfunctional aspects of social media. It also identifies and promotes the positive civic engagement benefits of social media.

Routledge and the University of Winchester are delighted to announce Transformations in Celebrity Culture: The Fifth International CelebrityStudies Journal conference.
Keynote speakers (confirmed):
Celebrity Studies is now a rich, diverse and established field of academic study that focuses on the production, reception, and functions - social, psychological and textual - of a wide range of public figures.
Building on theories of spectacle (Boorstin 1961), histories of fame (Braudy 1986), and studies of stardom (Dyer 1979, 1986; Gledhill 1991; Stacey 1994), the academic study of celebrity was given shape around the turn of the century by a number of seminal books (DeCordova 1990; Gamson 1994; Marshall 1997; Turner, Bonner and Marshall 2000; Giles 2000; Rojek 2001; Turner 2004), readers (Marshall 2006; Redmond and Holmes 2007), and edited collections (Holmes and Redmond 2006; Negra and Holmes 2011).
The last decade has seen the publication of new editions of now-classic books (Turner 2014; Marshall 2014), new histories of celebrity (Inglis 2010; Lilti 2017), and a sustained expansion in myriad exciting directions, including online fame (Marwick 2013), celebrity politics (Wheeler 2013), celebrity and the environment (Brockington 2009), transnational stardom (Meeuf and Raphael 2013), celebrity and ‘race’ (Mask 2009), celebrity feminism (Taylor 2017), celebrity and ageing (Jermyn 2014), celebrity and disability (Howe and Parker 2012), the political economy of celebrity (Williamson 2016), queering celebrity (Halberstam 2013), celebrity and religion (Weber 2019), and literary celebrity (Honings and Franssen 2017), among many others.
Since it first appeared in 2010 under the editorship of Sean Redmond and Su Holmes, the Routledge journal Celebrity Studies has become a key international publication in the field, providing an essential platform for the best new critical scholarship on celebrity and stardom.
Following successful conferences in Melbourne, London, Amsterdam, and Rome, Transformations in Celebrity Culture thus provides the opportunity to both celebrate and take critical stock of the developments that shaped and shook the field during the first 10 years of Celebrity Studies journal, and to look forward into the future. In an era marked by crisis and anxiety, how has our understanding of stardom changed?
What has been the impact of social, political, cultural and economic developments on the cultures of celebrity? Do we discern new, alternative forms of renown?

Call for Panels: https://www.cpdpconferences.org/call-for-panels
This call for panels is aimed at academic consortia, research projects, think tanks and other research organisations. (Another call, to individuals for academic research papers, will go out towards the end of June 2019).
For the 2020 edition, CPDP takes as its focus one of the most powerful technologies of this century: Artificial Intelligence. Investment and work in AI are accelerating at an unprecedented rate while governments in several countries are swinging into action to regulate AI. What complications does AI add to the already fraught terrain of digital rights? Is the GDPR the panacea for all the legal issues arising in the age of AI? How meaningful is the concept of personal data in the face of systems which work with the logic of identifying hidden trends and behaviour and affect large groups? How can we best address the issues of social justice implicated by AI? Is AI the right framework to discuss the challenges of data-driven technologies? CPDP2020 will serve as a platform to discuss and seek answers to such questions and more. We welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to technology, privacy and data protection, but particularly invite proposals that fit the general conference theme.
We particularly seek panel proposals addressing the following topics:
We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary, geographically and gender diverse. We also welcome different types of sessions such as debates, roundtables, workshops and other non-conventional formats. More information about rules for panel composition and submission can be found here.
Please note: chosen institutions, organisations or EU research projects will become CPDP2020 event partners. This implies that the event partner is able to finance all costs of the panel speakers (travel and lodging) in addition to paying a conference contribution of €1200. In return, the event partner will be granted a number of benefits such as logo recognition, conference bag insert and full conference registration for the panelists. Organizations such as nonprofits for whom the panel fee would cause financial hardship can get in touch after submitting their panel proposal.
Panel proposals should be submitted through the online form here. Please fill in the form as completely as possible.
Final panel submission/suggestion: Sunday, 16th June 2019
Notification sent to panel convenors: Monday, 8th July 2019
Panel organisation finalised: Friday, October 18th, 2019
Dates of CPDP 2020: 22nd to 24th January, 2020
If you have an innovative idea for the set up of a panel or workshop or have any questions regarding potential panel topics, please contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The third annual RGS-IBG Digital Geographies Research Group Symposium will be taking place at the University of Birmingham on 3rd July 2019, examining the Geographies of Gaming and VR.
Since Atari released Pong in 1972 the video game industry has evolved rapidly, with an estimated global value of $137.9 billion in 2018 (Newzoo, 2018). Considering the size of the sector and notwithstanding important exceptions (e.g. Ash & Gallacher 2011, Shaw & Sharp 2013), gaming has received surprisingly little attention from geographers. VR, meanwhile, has been periodically hyped as the next big thing in technology for over thirty years. The immersive qualities of VR drive a particularly compelling experience of virtual space, yet VR has been relatively neglected by geographers (although see Hillis, 1996, Fisher and Unwin, 2002). In recent years VR has been boosted by significant investments from tech giants such as Facebook, Sony and Microsoft and is gaining traction in both consumer and professional contexts as a platform for games, socialisation and immersive media.
The programme for this event has now been finalised, and tickets are on sale via our Eventbrite page. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/geographies-of-gaming-and-vr-3rd-annual-digital-geographies-symposium-tickets-58595899914

What is coming to pass? How do we experience that which is passing us everyday? From coastal vantages, friends and lovers wish safe passage with the wave of a hand. In the berths of ships, this security is furnished both through documents of passage — visas, tickets, logbooks — as well as the logistics of oceanic travel and maneuvers of the ship.
Yet transversal, identity, and its mediations sometimes run athwart of each other. After failed attempts, user and password meet interface as impasse. Students get caught lolling in the hallway without a pass only to face the fury of administrators. No, safe passage is not guaranteed. It is a matter of strategy and planning. Taking on the clothes, haircuts, language, and gestures of gendered, sexualized, or racialized normativity, we inhabit forms of passing only to reject them in more familiar community.
Saying passage is a matter of survival is to point to both the quotidian and the crisis. One moment, we’re occupying the ethics of sociality. Someone says, “Pass the salt.” And the next, that someone has “passed on”. Passage directs us from one register to another, from one world to another. These are not merely euphemisms. Our rituals and rites of passage move us forward. They are not something we can pass up.
The 2019 Postman Graduate Conference invites graduate students, artists, and independent scholars to submit projects that attend to passage and acts of passing. Recognizing the mobility of the concept, the selection committee welcomes interdisciplinary responses, artist talks, and academic papers which meditate on passing and its possibilities as modes of inquiry and survival.
Possible topics include (but are by no means limited to):
Please email submissions to email@example.com by June 15, 2019. Abstracts should be 250-300 words in length, formatted as Word documents (.doc, .docx), and accompanied by a CV

The Université libre de Bruxelles invites submissions for abstracts for papers and panels for the 12th OURMedia Conference to be held 27-30 November in Brussels, Belgium. The deadline has been extended to June 15.
The conference will be held under the general theme ‘Mediactivism – Scholactivism’. We encourage the submission of papers that focus on the (real or imagined) gap between academia and society, exploring how academic scholarship could be useful for (alternative) media (activists) and the myriad ways in which media scholars can be committed to equality, social justice and progressive social change. The general theme ‘Mediactivism – Scholactivism’ refers to how both media practitioners and media scholars, rather than being impartial or partisan, can be ‘committed’ by actively and openly campaigning for particular ideals. As the conference will coincide with the 20th anniversary of Indymedia, we encourage the submission of papers specifically focusing on analysing its legacy, achievements, shortcomings and influence on contemporary (online) media activism.
The confirmed keynote speakers are Dorothy Kidd (University of San Francisco), Des Freedman (Goldsmiths, University of London), Keltoum Belorf (DeWereldMorgen.be) and Vincent Verzat (Partager C'est Sympa).
The conference program committee consists of Amaranta Cornejo Hernandez (Centro de Estudios Superiores de México y Centroamérica), David Domingo (Université libre de Bruxelles), Pieter Maeseele (Universiteit Antwerpen), Dimitra Milioni (Cyprus University), Ana Lucia Nunes de Sousa (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro), Robin Van Leeckwyck (Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles), Pantelis Vatikiotis (Kadir Has University).
The local organizing committee consists of Roel Coesemans (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), David Domingo (Université libre de Bruxelles), Stijn Joye (Universiteit Gent), Florence Le Cam (Université libre de Bruxelles), Pieter Maeseele (Universiteit Antwerpen), Steve Paulussen (Universiteit Antwerpen), Ike Picone (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Robin Van Leeckwyck (Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles), Victor Wiard (Université libre de Bruxelles; Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles).
We welcome both individual abstracts and panel presentations in English, Spanish, French or Dutch. All proposals must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words. Panel proposals consist of a panel description (title + framing text) and the individual abstract of each panel member contribution.
We particularly encourage the participation of activists, both scholactivist and mediactivist. A limited number of travel grants is available.
Finally, we strongly encourage travelling by train instead of plane. Moreover, a videoconferencing system will be available to those who are unable to physically attend the conference.
A special series of sessions will be dedicated to the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Indymedia, by critically approaching its legacy: the Indymedia network was set up in 1999 in London and Seattle (with the WTO protests). Using new technologies of information and communication, activists created online content in parallel to what was broadcasted and reported by traditional media. But what is left of the Indymedia network after its 20th anniversary, and how has it helped in shaping the evolution of (alternative) media? We propose to tackle this theme by asking three questions: (1) How can we explain the decline of Indymedia’s local and regional centers? (2) How has the role of Indymedia evolved over time in the social movements landscape of the regions/countries it is or was present in ? And (3) which influence has the "Indymedia experiment" had on new alternative media initiatives?
Indymedia is a form of Mediactivism, which constitutes the second theme of the conference. We encourage presentations that focus on examples of mediactivism, using online and/or offline tools. Activists’ experiences may foster scholarly discussions that take us beyond the classical division between expressivist (ie citizens’ participation) and counter-hegemonic (ie discourses and form opposed to the mainstream) media. We warmly welcome activists’ testimonies and presentations of current and future projects.
As a specific form of activism, we also put forward the question regarding scholactivism, which is the third theme of the conference. As scholars, how can we be involved in activism? To which extent can we collaborate with traditional or alternative media? How can we express our solidarity with progressive social movements, and more importantly, take inspiration from them and embed our work in their campaigns? Can we be part of the “counter-power”? We ask specific experiences that foster innovative research approaches and question established methodological practices. The goal of the conference is to make a link between mediactivism and scholactivism. How can we foster cooperation between scholars, activists and media-practitioners? How can we justify the social engagement of academia and deactivate the assumption that researchers (and professional journalists) are supposed to have a “neutral point of view”?
Looking at the Arab Spring, the Occupy Wall Street Movement or the Indignados, the anti-TTIP movements or the more recent climate marches, and the influence of Facebook and Twitter on those movements, it may seem that social media are at the core of contemporary counter-hegemonic communication strategies, in the realm of digital activism. This is the fourth theme of the conference. In this regard, social media are not always used by the same kinds of activists. Extremist right-wing political trolls seem to have found online the perfect space to bully professional politics and shape the agenda towards intolerance and hate. Are social media really helping us to structure social movements and effectively changing political power imbalances? Is the political economy of social media being critically discussed and assessed when used? For this crucial discussion, both media practitioners and scholars can exchange experiences and knowledge regarding the effects of social media platforms, their interfaces and algorithmic mechanisms in the hope to gain knowledge on how to use or distance oneself from these online services. Finally, research and debate among scholars today are generally focused on online communication. Is there still a place for offline activism and offline media? How can one develop alternative media without social media, the internet or digital technologies? Are face-to-face discussions and the quite old-fashioned leaflets still useful? We welcome contributions on the offline side of mediactivism.

Since its subject of study is changing constantly and rapidly, research on media entertainment has to be quick to adapt. This need to quickly react and adapt not only relates to the questions researchers need to ask but also to the methods they need to employ to answer those questions. For several decades now, the large majority of quantitative research on the content, uses, and effects of media entertainment has been based on data from surveys, manual content analyses, or lab experiments. While there is no doubt that these studies have produced numerous important insights into media entertainment, they have certain limitations, some of which may entail significant biases. For example, several recent studies have shown that self-reports of media use tend to be unreliable. This is especially problematic if researchers are interested in very specific, rare, or socially undesirable forms of media entertainment. Experimental lab studies, on the other hand, tend to have relatively small samples and often occur in somewhat unnatural settings. And manual content analyses are not suitable for the large amounts of data that new forms of media entertainment generate (e.g., comments on YouTube videos). Over the last few years, the nascent field of computational social science has been developing and using methods for the collection and analysis of data that can help to address some of the limitations of traditional methods. For example, the use of digital trace data, such as data collected via APIs or tracking apps/plugins, can alleviate some problems associated with self-report data, and methods from the area of machine learning can be used to (semi-)automatically analyze large amounts of media content (or reactions to it). For this thematic issue, we invite substantive as well as methodological contributions that employ computational methods—either standalone or in combination with traditional methods—to study the content, uses, and effects of media entertainment. Submissions should either apply computational methods to investigate the content, uses or effects of media entertainment (studies that combine different types/sources of data, such as surveys and digital trace data, are especially welcome) or present and discuss novel computational methodologies for collecting and/or analyzing data on the content, uses or effects of entertainment media.
We invite two types of submissions: (1) late-breaking brief reports (of no longer than 3000 words, inclusive of all manuscript elements) and (2) longer-format manuscripts (of no longer than 6000 words, inclusive of all manuscript elements). Submissions engaging in open science practices will be given particular consideration in the review process (for some practical primers on the adoption of open science practices see https://how-to-open.science or http://psych-transparency-guide.uni-koeln.de). We also especially welcome preregistered studies (for an introduction to preregistration see https://how-to-open.science/plan/preregistration/why or http://psych-transparency-guide.uni-koeln.de/preregistration.html).
Instructions for Authors: Authors interested in submitting a paper for this issue are asked to consult the journal’s instructions for authors and send their abstracts (about 250 words, with a tentative title and reference to the thematic issue) by email to the Editorial Office (email@example.com).
Open Access: The journal has an article publication fee to cover its costs and guarantee that the article can be accessed free of charge by any reader, anywhere in the world, regardless of affiliation. We defend that authors should not have to personally pay this fee and advise them to check with their institutions if funds are available to cover open access publication fees. Institutions can also join Cogitatio’s Membership Program at a very affordable rate and enable all affiliated authors to publish without incurring any fees. Further information about the journal’s open access charges and institutional members can be found here.

Call for Papers
The relations between gender, sexuality and the media are ubiquitous and firmly embedded in everyday practices at a cultural and social level. Our understanding of how people across Europe interpret and consume media content and perform gender and sexual identities within this context is changing alongside the modification of the media landscape.
Due to political and cultural changes across Europe and the rest of the world, issues connected to sexual identity and gender are in the process of being renegotiated and, in certain instances, even questioned. On the one hand, there are tendencies reconfirming patriarchal scripts; on the other hand, there are challenges and redefinitions of old paradigms.
Researchers within media studies have been working within diverse epistemological and methodological contexts in order to understand this mutation. This conference attempts to position itself within this debate with the aim of problematising such issues across research fields.
We are looking for original and innovative research within media, cultural and feminist studies, exploring the complex set of relations between media, gender and sexuality and the approaching aspects of the changing social and sexual landscape. We are especially looking for contributions that approach the topics of interest analytically in terms of production, representation and consumption, reflecting different cultural constructions and experiences.
We welcome presentations from (though not exclusively) the following topics:
Please submit your 350-400 words abstract in English, along with a short bio (up to 150 words), including contact details before the 20th of July. Abstracts will be reviewed via a blind peer review process.
