> accepting session proposals until* March 9, 2022.* For the updated call

> movement-building.
> Submissions can be sent in to workshops at cis-india.org.

>> Hello,
>> The Centre for Internet and Society is happy to announce the fifth
>> edition of the Internet Researchers’ Conference (IRC22)! The
>> conference will be held online in April, 2022.
>> For the call for proposals, and more details, see:
>> https://tinyurl.com/irc22
>> See below for a description of the theme of this year's conference:
>> The ‘home’ has been a key line of defense in efforts to curtail the
>> spread of COVID-19. Public health recommendations and governmental
>> measures over the last two years have relied on the construction, and
>> assumption, of home as a familiar, stable and safe space.
>> As we continue to come to terms with, and find ways to reorient the
>> disruption of life, being at home has acquired many new meanings. What
>> has it meant to be at home, and what is home? What is and has been the
>> role of the internet and digital media technologies in navigating the
>> contours of a changing ‘normal’? How have/can digital technologies
>> help overcome, or exacerbate existing social, economic and political
>> challenges during the pandemic? What forms of digital
>> infrastructure—tools, platforms, devices and services—help build,
>> sustain and alter the notion of home?
>> The conference will focus on three sub-themes as they relate to the
>> notion of home - violence and care, labour, and movement-building. The
>> sub-themes are outlined here:
>> https://cis-india.org/raw/irc22-call-for-sessions-pdf
>> We invite contributions that speak to these provocations through one
>> or more of the thematic areas outlined above.
>> The deadline for submission of session proposals is February 5, 2022.
>> Submissions can be sent in to workshops at cis-india.org.
>> Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
>> Best,
>> Ambika
