Lugar: Dublin, Irlanda
The Centre for Critical Media Literacy (CCML) at Dublin Institute of Technology looks forward to welcoming you to its second annual conference.
With societies experiencing a widespread loss of trust in ‘surveillance capitalism’, how can a genuinely critical media literacy help to analyse and transform the relationship between personal and civic data and corporate profit? What alternatives — social, political, economic and technological — already exist, and what further innovations can we generate?
Papers will be presented from various disciplines, on themes including computation for social, gaming and information networks; participation and engagement; legacy media in perpetual ‘crisis’; social-media institutions and platforms; and pedagogy in and beyond media studies.
The CCML is seeking to develop models for participatory research and universal access. Alongside the conference, the centre will host a parallel event, based on universal design, for maximum participation from communities that are often excluded from academic events.
