<nettime-ann> CFP: CONF: New Media in South Asia, Southeast Asia, Middle East, North Africa

Berlin | New Media Configurations - Changing Societies? | Call for Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS for the international conference: New Media Configurations - Changing Societies? Current Research Perspectives on South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North Africa on 28-30 November 2013 at Humboldt University Berlin, Institute for Asian and African Studies.

Organized by the DFG research network âMedialisation and social change outside Europe: South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Arab-speaking regionâ, Berlin, funded by the German Research Foundation.
Deadline for abstracts: 15 June 2013

Deadline for full papers (7-10 pages): 30 October 2013

The three-day international conference will explore the interrelationship between processes of me-dialisation and sociocultural change in South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.

The conference is based on the assumption that social and cultural change never originates exclu-sively from the media or technological innovations, but rather depends on the changing conceptions with which people adopt media technologies and integrate them in their daily lives. Besides the transregional exploration of new media configurations and changing media practices, the conference will discuss the specific economic, legal and political structures in the different local and national contexts of what is increasingly referred to as the Global South.

Confirmed keynote speakers are Prof. Maitrayee Chaudhuri, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India, and Prof. Ziad Fahmy, Cornell University, USA.

The conference program includes five panels:

Panel I: Research, Media Art and Documentary Filmmaking
Panel II: The Political Economy of Media: Politics, Ownership and Technologies
Panel III: Changing Media and Religious Renegotiations
Panel IV: Media Changing Identities: Focus on Gender and Generation
Panel V: Converging Media - Changing Practices: What is new about New Media?

Deadline for abstracts
The deadline for abstracts is Saturday, 15 June 2013. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by a selec-tion committee. Authors will be notified by end of July 2013. The deadline for the submission of full papers (7-10 pages) is Wednesday, 30 October 2013.

Abstracts should be between 250-400 words and must include the presenterâs name, institutional affiliation, email and postal address, together with a short CV.
