Subject: The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Call for Submissions (deadline June 30, 2020) (109)  From: Carl Ohman Subject: Deepfakes CFP (87) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2020-05-21 12:16:58+00:00 From: Sarah Jacobs Subject: The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Call for Submissions (deadline June 30, 2020) The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy General Issue with a Forum on Data and Computational Pedagogy Issue Editors: Gregory Palermo (Northeastern University) Brandon Walsh (University of Virginia Library) Editorial Assistant: Kelly Hammond (CUNY Graduate Center) Call for submissions URL: https://jitp.commons.gc.cuny.edu/call-for-submissions/ The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (JITP) seeks scholarly work at the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. We are interested in contributions that creatively take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms and critique their limitations. We invite both textual and multimedia submissions employing interdisciplinary and innovative approaches in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Besides scholarly papers, the submissions can consist of audio or visual presentations and interviews, dialogues, or conversations; creative/artistic works; manifestos; or other scholarly materials, including work that addresses the labor and care considerations of academic technology projects. For this issue, we will accept both general submissions on any topic within the field, and contributions destined for a subsection featuring conversations on Data and Computational Pedagogy. Forum on Data and Computational Pedagogy As algorithms dynamically categorize, distribute, and elevate certain kinds of information, and play an increasing role in shaping experiences of data, how are we fostering students' critical engagement with using and making data? This featured section will showcase submissions addressing the challenges and opportunities emerging from thinking about computation, pedagogy, and data literacy together. How, when, and to what effect are educators encouraging facility with the transformation and re-presentation of data? How do educators and students grapple with issues of power and agency when using data? What pedagogical interventions might help our readers to think differently about data or computational literacy? How might our understanding of data analysis as a transformative and literate practice structure research on teaching? Pedagogical contributions that draw upon related theoretical debates are more than welcome, such as those in critical algorithm studies, data feminism and ethics, critical code studies, science and technology studies, computational humanities, writing analytics, algorithmic rhetoric, literacy studies, and information science. To float ideas and proposals for this forum specifically, please contact us at email@example.com. Brief Guidelines for Submissions Research-based submissions should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis, so as to provide a teachable model for future researchers. When possible, research data should be made publicly available and accessible via the Web and/or other digital mechanisms, a process that JITP can and will support as necessary. Successes and interesting failures are equally welcome. Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies play out in both formal and informal educational settings. Discipline-specific submissions should be written for non-specialists. For further information on style and formatting, accessibility requirements, and multimedia submissions, consult JITP's accessibility guidelines (https://jitp.commons.gc.cuny.edu/submit/#accessibility), style guide (https://jitp.commons.gc.cuny.edu/submit/#style-guide) and multimedia submission guidelines (https://jitp.commons.gc.cuny.edu/multimedia-submission-guidelines-and-best- practices/) Submission and Review Process All work appearing in the Issues section of JITP is reviewed by the issue editors and independently by two scholars in the field who provide formative feedback to the author(s) during the review process. We practice signed, as opposed to anonymous or 'blind', peer review. We intend that the journal itself - both in our process and in our digital product - serves as an opportunity to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom practices. As a courtesy to our reviewers, we will not consider simultaneous submissions, but we will do our best to reply to you within three months of the submission deadline. The expected length for finished manuscripts is under 5,000 words. All work should be original and previously unpublished. Essays or presentations posted on a personal blog may be accepted, provided they are substantially revised; please contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Important Dates Submission deadline for full manuscripts is June 30th, 2020. Please view our submission guidelines for information about submitting to the Journal. The editorial team and the JITP editorial collective want to offer any support we can to those facing increased caregiving workloads. We seek to put our pedagogical and collaborative mandate into practice by inviting constructive communication with authors developing their work during this difficult period. If you are unable to meet this deadline for whatever reason given COVID-19-related disruptions, please email the editors at email@example.com to discuss an extension. Optionally, if you would like to receive feedback from the editors on an abstract or paper proposal, please submit it to the editors by May 31st, 2020. This issue is slated for publication in December 2020. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2020-05-21 11:34:41+00:00 From: Carl Ohman Subject: Deepfakes CFP CFP: Convergence Special Issue: “The Digital Face and Deep Fakes on Screen” Deadline for Abstract Submissions: June 30, 2020 Deadline for Full Papers: January 5, 2021 “The Digital Face and Deepfakes on Screen” Special Issue of Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies Guest editors: Lisa Bode (University of Queensland), Dominic Lees (University of the West of England), Dan Golding (Swinburne University of Technology) Expected date of publication: August 2021 The past few decades in high-budget screen production has seen the emergence of digital human faces on screen. The iconic youthful likenesses of dead and aging stars have been painstakingly recreated for advertising and film franchise prequels and sequels. Actors’ faces have been pasted over those of stunt and performer doubles for sequences of breath-taking agility, or integrated with animated animalistic or mechanistic bodies for the purposes of fantasy and science fiction. Such sequences are notable for the time, labour, and technology required to make them, but in late 2017 things escalated: an open access machine learning application was released online, and the means to quickly and easily replace or alter faces in moving images became readily available. Since then, so-called ‘deepfakes’ have proliferated on video sharing sites and social media, causing widespread concern about consequences for persona rights, revenge porn, our perception of social and political reality, and the potential to further undermine the democratic process in an era of ‘fake news’. Both deepfakes and the digital human face more generally, raise multiple pressing concerns, which this special issue seeks to explore. This special issue examines how the technological processes of creating and altering the digital face impact on screen cultures, on the reception of the moving image, and on social interactions through the mobile screen. We seek papers that look at the ethical, philosophical and legal issues around the use of deepfakes in public life, and those that may explore positive cultural and creative possibilities for deepfakes and/or digital faces more generally. The editors welcome contributions from a range of disciplinary perspectives that explore questions such as: • What are the implications of digital faces and/or deepfakes for screen labour markets, screen production, visual effects workers, performers, or celebrity culture? • To what extent are established legal or ethical frameworks challenged by or vital to approaching the creation and circulation of deepfakes? • What older ways of thinking about persona, likeness, the actor/character relation, or illusionism might be useful for understanding digital faces and/or deepfakes? • How do viewers respond to digital faces and/or deepfakes in different contexts? What factors might shape persuasiveness, uncertainty, or suspicion in viewer responses? • What are the gendered, racial, or other social identity issues around digital faces and deepfakes? • Are there distinct geographic, temporal, and cultural differences in the dominant uses and/or discourse surrounding and/or reception of digital faces on screen? Deadline for abstracts: June 30, 2020 Please send a 500-word abstract and a 100-word bio to the guest editors: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit full contributions by January 5, 2021 Best Carl Öhman, Ph.D Candidate Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford 41 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3JS, UK _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
