> Hi everyone,
> A reminder that John Jones of Ohio State and I have a call out for our
> edited collection on The Crisis in Digital Democracy. We're accepting
> 500-word proposals through January, 25th that explore:
>    *The effect of online content laws in hindering or promoting
> online accountability or  abuse
>    *The spread/growth of clickbait, memes, and “fake news” and the
> impact of bots and sock-puppet accounts on distributing such content
>     *Targeted social media campaigns and advertising
>     *The role of Internet-era actors like Wikileaks in influencing
> public opinion and policy
>     *The history of media disruptions in elections and how this
> history can inform current issues
>     *The design of networked platforms and software as well as their
> role in privileging particular online interactions
>     *The evolution of social media tastemakers, including activists,
> pundits, and entertainers
>     *The role of anonymity and platform liability restrictions on
> civic discourse
>     *Expressions of government accountability (or lack thereof) in
> digital spaces
> We're are particularly interested in papers that frame global events
> around 2016 as we move forward and learn from those events.
