Salford Workshop Call for Papers The 2nd Digital Cultures Workshop: Social Media Publics is held June 4-5th, 2009 in Salford, UK. The deadline for submitting a paper is February 28th. For more detailed information, please download the call for papers here.. Quoting from the call:
"It is clear that the boundaries between the "public" and the "private" are becoming increasingly blurred within and amongst sites of home and work. Indeed, in the wake of reality television shows, national identity card schemes, increased social media usage and the like, publicity appears to be the order of the day. For this workshop we seek papers that discuss the issues raised for those living in environments where there is seemingly little room for privacy. As was the case last year, we intend for the workshop to be multi-disciplinary in nature, broad in the approaches participants take and issues they cover. If your work is about any aspect of digital culture, this is the workshop for you! "
