There is currently an open call for papers for Ways of Being in a Digital Age: a review conference, which takes place on 10th and 11th October 2017 at the University of Liverpool.
The conference will close the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) project Ways of being in a digital age. The project was commissioned by the ESRC to help identify and prioritise future areas and methods for research on the social, economic, political, psychological and cultural impacts of digital media and technologies.
Led by the University of Liverpool, the project team consists of academics from eight UK universities, and a broader international steering group that represents 18 universities and organisations from across the UK, France, the USA and Singapore. The final project report is to be published soon.
The purpose of this academic conference is to extend and deepen the project work completed to date. Papers that offer systematic, thematic or methodological reviews of existing research on any aspect of the seven project domains are sought. The domains are:
- Citizenship and politics
- Communities and identities
- Communication and relationships
- Health and wellbeing
- Economy and sustainability
- Data and representation
- Governance and security
The project team intends to include the conference papers in an edited collection developed from the project.
