Subject: DECLARATIONS - Call for participation

Call for Participation


We are planning a symposium, DECLARATIONS of [inter]dependence and 
the im[media]cy of design to be held on October 25 - 28, 2001 at 
Concordia University, Montreal. The symposium will bring together 
designers, artists, educators and activists to explore the public 
sphere as a space of democratic voice and citizenship with an 
emphasis on graphic agitation, manifestoes, interventions, 
alternative modes of public address, and culture jamming. We are 
committed to the development of a discourse for a socially engaged 
design practice that seeks to address the complex and contradictory 
role designers play as cultural producers in capitalist societies.

Important in our discussions will be the links from theory to 
practice - the strategies for action adopted by image makers and 
cultural producers working both inside and outside "the mainstream." 
Moreover, the rapid expansion of digital technologies is implicated 
in this discourse as a tool and medium for expression. Digital media 
have transformed the discipline of design - changing the ways in 
which we work, allowing direct access to communication networks, and 
opening the door to cross-disciplinary collaborations.

We are actively seeking proposals for interdisciplinary 
presentations, parallel events, interventions, performances, 
roundtable discussions, and workshops. Suggested themes include:

The crisis of meaning in culture and communication design; 
reformulating the roles of consumers and designers as cultural 

* The designer as author
* The role of "content producers" in the new information economy
* Co-opting the language of activist politics in consumer culture
* History and theory - towards a revisionist interpretation of social 
responsibility in design

Strategies for opening public spaces to participatory democracy

* What does it mean to be a visual activist?
* Coalition building - bridging communities of designers, activists, 
artists, and academics for social change
* Virtual unrest and concrete politics
* Activist strategies for street intervention

The methods and means of a dialogic, political, and socially engaged practice

* Self-publishing & alternative press
* How to employ a socially engaged design practice in client-based 
* Non-consumptive forms of visual communication
* When are we selling out? Is there a place for the manifesto in a 
discipline often
characterized by compromise?

Potential contributors should submit a written description of their 
proposal no longer than 500 words together with any relevant visual 
documentation, by April 15th 2001. Please indicate all special 
requirements, such as nature and size of space needed, and any 
equipment necessary for the presentation. Notification of acceptance 
will be made by April 30th 2001.

Subject: Getting Into Your Genes: Protecting Health Information- March 14- Privacy Lecture Series


Getting into your Genes: Protecting Health Information
Wednesday, March 14 2001
7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Brendan Seaton
PRIVA-C Solutions

140 St. George, Room 728
Faculty of Information Studies (building adjacent to Robarts Library)
University of Toronto

Of all the information that exists about us, health information is the most 
private. This is because health information describes the very core of our 
being. It speaks to our physical and mental states, and says much about our 
life circumstances and lifestyle choices. In the future our genetic code 
will be available. Whether it will be available for all to see, or 
available to those to whom we choose to disclose it remains to be seen. It 
will be up to lawmakers and technologists to protect our interests.

This presentation will look at the special quality of health information, 
at the ethics of the use and disclosure of health information, and the 
methods we can employ to protect it. Issues concerning the private versus 
the public good will be presented, and hopefully debated in a lively and 
entertaining exchange.

Brendan Seaton is the President of PRIVA-C Solutions, a company 
specializing in information privacy and President of COACH, Canada's Health 
Informatics Association. He is also Chief Privacy and Security Officer for 
Ontario Smart Systems for Health, an initiative to establish a secure 
health information infrastructure to link health care providers in Ontario. 
Brendan has held senior management positions in Veterans Affairs Canada and 
Ontario Blue Cross. He is one of Canada's leading experts in the security 
and privacy of health information.

The lectures are FREE of charge, and there is NO need for registration.

>From the 15th until the 17th of March, the tyrannies of globalisation
will partecipate to the third Global Forum about e-government in Naples.
At the same time thousands of peoples will fill the roads and the squares
of the city to protest against this international summit. The sense and
the goals of the counter-Global Forum are the same that characterised the
mobilizations of Seattle, Melbourne, Prague, Nice, Davos, and that we will
find another time in Genova. In Naples, as well as in the other occasions,
we want to contrast the neoliberalist globalisation with the globalisation
of the rights and of the social movements.

expressions of identity.

simulating the experience of on-line video chat, this work combines
sequenced screen images from cu-see me reflector sites, text from
real-time chat sessions with sound clips of new york city internet
artists&theorists reflecting on net-based communication. the work as a
whole has the combined effect of functioning like an extended,
self-reflexive conversation taking place in both real and delayed time,
amongst geographically dispersed participants mediated by the surface of
their computer screens.

Re:mote_corp {AT} REALities is part of an an on-going exploration regarding
on-line communication in an era obsessed with technology.

Subject: call for papers -- Digital Divide

                            CALL FOR PAPERS
             EJC/REC: Electronic Journal of Communication/
                 La Revue Electronique de Communication

            A Digital Divide? Facts, Explanations, Policies

    Interested scholars are invited to submit manuscripts for a special
issue of Electronic Journal of Communication/La Revue Electronique de
Communication (EJC/REC) that will focus on research and theory concerning
the so-called digital divide.  Presently, heated discussions are taking
place in America and Europe, in particular, about whether there is such a
digital divide or not.  And when it is deemed to exist, the next question
is whether it will close or widen in years to come. Most of this
discussion is politically charged.  Solid scientific research and analysis
are scarce.  In the meantime, official statistics are beginning to appear,
like those of the US Census Bureau, summarized in the NTIA's reports
Falling through the Net I, II, III, the Eurobarometer and United Nations
Development Reports.  However, research and analysis based on these
resources and other primarily descriptive statistics does not take into
consideration the multifaceted nature of access, the social, cultural, and
psychological causes for lack of access, the need for theory to explain
these problems and policy measures to address them, and the contributions
that a communicative or psychological perspective can provide.

    We invite manuscripts that address the digital divide and any of the
problems associated with understanding its nature, its origins, and its
potential solutions.  In particular, we welcome:

    * Empirical studies related to the existence of a digital divide
(clearly defined) among one or more of the categories of income,
education, occupation, age, sex, race and ethnicity.  Multivariate
analyses are preferred.

    * Summary statistics and other concise descriptions of distributions
of computers, networks, skills and uses around the world, including
Northern America, European Union, Eastern Europe, Eastern Asia and the
Third World.

    * Explanations of (in)equalities based on longitudinal data and/or
multivariate models, new conceptual distinctions, and/or theories of
(in)equality in the information and network society.

    * Studies highlighting problems of attitudes towards digital
technology, digital skills, usage styles and actual usage in different
social contexts, with special attention to the social categories mentioned

    * Studies supporting or refuting popular claims about digital
technology and its opportunities to solve inequalities.  For example, has
digital technology enabled higher rates of political participation in
general or has it benefited the existing political elite and already
politically active with yet another instrument to increase their

    * Descriptions and analyses of concrete policy measures pursued by
governments, corporations, union-, consumer- and user groups and civic

    Manuscripts should be prepared following guidelines of the American
Psychological Association (4th ed.).  Authors should be careful to remove
all personal references from the manuscript to allow for blind review.  
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically.  After acceptance both a
hard copy and an electronic copy will be required.  Deadline for the
receipt of manuscripts is July 31, 2001.

    Notification of (non)acceptance within 5 weeks (receipts in June and
July 2 weeks longer).

Authors should submit manuscripts to the Guest Editor:
