ANZCA Conference 2019
The conference will interrogate the link between broad sociocultural dynamics and changes in communication, media and the arts, in an age of datafication. In a highly digitalised society, our transactions, communications, movements and relationships leave digital traces that can be collected and processed systematically and in massive volumes.
This datafication of society has dramatically changed the dynamics of power relations in the distribution and communication of information. It will be an opportunity to incubate and develop theories, research, and frameworks and inform methods for the field and its practices.
We invite researchers, artists and activists to problematise the challenges we face in the twenty-first century, with a special focus on the impacts of digital technology on arts, media and communication practices, and to consider how the public is responding to the new power relations mobilised by changes in communication and media.
