YECREA workshop on
"Digital methods for studying algorithms: complicating the socio-technical relation”
at Södertörn University, Stockholm
organised by ECREA’s Communication and Democracy, and Media Industries and Cultural Production Sections

We would like to invite all young scholars - doctoral students, post-docs and junior scholars - to the YECREA workshop organised as part of the upcoming conference on “Digital Democracy: Critical Perspectives in the Age of Big Data” on 10-11 November 2017 in Stockholm at Södertörn University.

The workshop will take the form of a half-day pre-conference session on the afternoon of 9 November, and will be facilitated by Annette Markham, Professor of Information Studies at Aarhus University.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for young scholars to raise and discuss questions and projects concerning methods for studying algorithms and algorithmic cultures. The workshop aims to gather a multiplicity of perspectives, frames, and questions that can extend our understanding of how to deal with algorithms in research.

If you are interested in participating, please submit a brief expression of interest (ca 300 words) in which you provide a short description of your project. Additionally, please provide a bionote stating your name, affiliation and position, as well as the stage of your project.

Please submit your expressions of interest to julia.velkova at sh.se<mailto:julia.velkova at sh.se> by 1 June 2017.

The workshop is free of charge.

We encourage workshop participants to also submit a proposal for the main conference. Please submit your abstract also by 1 June 2017 (300-word abstract for individual proposals; or 300-word panel rationale plus individual 200 word abstracts from a minimum of four speakers for panel proposals).  All abstracts for individual and panel proposals for the main conference should be submitted through: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecreadigdem2017
