Digital Inclusion, Policy, and Research Conference (DIPRC) 2022 — 20th September 2022

Registration link: https://events.digitalpovertyalliance.org/diprc-2022/ 

We live in an age that is highly saturated with digital technologies. These offer a range of considerable opportunities in terms of socialisation, work, entertainment, and participation in society.  However, they also present risks ranging from digital exclusion, and issues of privacy and financial safety to misinformation and online abuse. There has also been an ever-growing reliance on digital technologies within our societies, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic. People’s main channels of communication have now, either partly or entirely, transferred to digital services, platforms and apps. As a result, everyday life is increasingly mediated by the internet and digital devices. This might include working remotely, interacting with family and friends, using services relating to health, undertaking leisure activities, following the news, or engaging in community or political activities.

These changes make it essential to ensure that different populations and groups are provided with equal opportunities to use and benefit from the use of digital technologies.  However, issues of digital exclusion and inequalities are far from resolved in our societies and, because of the pandemic, may have become more pronounced. These issues require research, policy and practical interventions that can address these inequalities. On the one hand, they can ensure that the digital environment is deployed, designed and run by ‘big tech’ and government in ways that are safe, accessible, and affordable. On the other hand, they can directly support different groups, especially the most vulnerable, to thrive in the digital age.

Indeed, how platforms and digital services are run and managed are often called into question because of under-regulation and the affordances of digital technologies – what these do or do not enable users to do.  Digital exclusion and inequalities can arise on multiple levels.  In terms of infrastructure and skills – from the rollout and pricing of digital infrastructure and services through to a lack of provision of educational and skills training.  Or in terms of the design of platforms and digital services. They are often designed, using algorithms aimed at providing personalised content and at boosting its visibility.  Though, it is now well established that algorithms potentially make it easy for issues of misinformation, polarisation, and online abuse to impact users. Very often issues of infrastructure, skills and online harm combine to further marginalise key groups or place them at greater risk.

These challenges lie at the intersection of research policy and practice around digital inequalities, inclusion, and literacies. These are at the heart of this fourth edition of the Digital Inclusion, Policy and Research Conference (DIPRC) 2022. As part of this conference, we invite scholars and practitioners to present their latest work on these topics. Questions that are particularly relevant to the conference include but are not limited to:

  • Which groups are the most vulnerable and struggle the most in terms of access, and/or benefit from the use of, digital technologies?
  • How should different groups be provided with the support they need to develop digital and data literacy skills?
  • How can key groups and communities use their knowledge to help them better navigate online risks and opportunities?
  • What types of policy and practical interventions are needed to tackle digital inequalities and promote digital literacy in our contemporary societies?
  • How can different governments, regions, and local municipalities respond to challenges relating to digital inclusion and digital literacy?

The conference aims to focus on global, national and local developments in this area, emphasising research, policy, and practice. Digital inequities have become an important part of broader persistent issues of social equity and justice. Key themes of the conference include:

  • Material and financial access to digital technologies
  • Digital literacy
  • Use of digital technologies by citizens and communities
  • The impact of socio-economic factors on digital inclusion
  • Users’ motivations to use, and attitudes towards, digital technologies
  • Socio-economic and socio-cultural variations in patterns of usage

Please register here: https://events.digitalpovertyalliance.org/diprc-2022/

Workshop

The conference workshops are three to six hours long sessions focused on a particular game-related topic. Workshops provide an opportunity for new ideas, theories and trends to be presented and discussed. Workshops can also be practical tutorials.

Concise workshop proposals of no more than 1000 words (excluding bibliography) should include major objectives and expected outcomes of the workshop, the justification for the workshop informed by current trends and research, the format and activities planned for the workshop, the organizers’ background, the anticipated number of participants and the way they will be selected.

Please note that the submission  should not be anonymous as the organizers’ background is very important in the decision-making process for workshops.

Call for abstracts

Research conferenceDec 8–10 2021Warburg-Haus Hamburg

Hosted by the German Research Council (DFG) funded project “Dis/connectivity. Imaginaries, Media Technologies, Politics”, Leuphana University Lüneburg’s Centre for Digital Cultures and the Chair of Sociological Theory, Department of Social Science, University of Hamburg. Convened by Timon Beyes ([email protected]), Urs Stäheli ([email protected]), Clara Wieghorst ([email protected]) and Lea Zierott ([email protected])

Confirmed keynote speaker: Marilyn Strathern, Cambridge

From
offline cafés to unplugged classrooms, from digital detox camps to
anti-tracking-apps and the “right to disconnect” from work:
spaces, devices, practices and political struggles around the
possibilities of cutting and disconnecting from networks are
beginning to shape digital cultures. Self-help literature focuses on
‘digital minimalism’ and in novels, a world without the Internet
is imagined.

While
different forms of disconnecting are gaining critical or celebratory
attention in popular discourse, little attention has been given to
these phenomena in the fields of sociological, culture-theoretical
and media-theoretical research. Yet such ‘disconnectivity’ takes
the form of a discrete social and media-technological praxis which
should not be reduced to an individualized ethics of ‘opting out’.
It neither implies an absolute state (as a complete opt-out of
networks) nor a mere restriction of the reach of digital media, but
rather a temporary and situational practice that reduces
connectivity, produces indifference and/or cuts relations.

These
practices, infrastructures and imaginaries of disconnecting challenge
mostly unquestioned assumptions about the primacy of connectivity,
network expansion and relationality. The phenomena of disconnection
problematize the analytical and ontological reach of relational
theories and call for the development of ‘arelational’ concepts
and analytical strategies.

The
aim of this conference is to map and reflect on phenomena of
disconnection, to develop an understanding of digital cultures as
marked by cuts, gaps, absences and pauses, and to consider the
implications for a relational, or perhaps arelational, theorizing.

The conference’s rationale is based on pioneering studies in anthropology, media studies and social theory. Anthropological research has pointed to the practice of “cutting the network” and the need to rethink relationality beyond its focus on the making of connections (Strathern 1996; Candea et al 2015), even to move beyond ‘relationism’ (Piette 2015). In the field of organization studies, there is long-standing (if atechnological) interest in organization as an arena of disconnecting (Munro 1997). Closer to the impact of digital technologies, media theorists have approached the emergence and critical potential of disconnection in the context of social media platforms (Portwood-Stacer 2013; Light 2014; Karppi 2018), in relation to media infrastructures (Galloway 2011) and the limits of networks (Meijas 2013), or by studying disconnection as practices of non-use, resistance and disruption (Hesselberth 2017), as voluntarily limited and self-governed “ambient commons” (McCullough 2015) and as the return of secret societies (Lovink and Rossiter 2018; Beyes and Pias 2019). Such political aspects of disconnectivity have become matters of concern in artistic thought and experiments with materials and infrastructures of disconnecting (Stäheli 2013, 2016; Harvey 2010, 2013; Steyerl 2013).

Based on and going beyond these trajectories, we invite contributions that empirically and theoretically engage with the expanded field of disconnectivity, its infrastructures, imaginaries and practices, its organization and politics. Submissions from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, and using different methodological approaches, are welcome.

How to participate

To participate, please submit an abstract by October 1, 2020. Abstracts should be of no more than 1,000 words.

Authors will be notified of acceptance or otherwise by November 2, 2020.
