Student Media Projects Competition digital sparks 02


For the second time the MARS Exploratory Media Lab of the Fraunhofer
Institute for Media Communication is organising the higher education
competition >digital sparks<. The aim of the competition is to allow a
structured and extensive insight into research and teaching at German
universities and colleges in the above subject areas and at the same
time to promote the next generation of scientists and artists.

All projects submitted will be published online on the Internet platform
netzspannung.org and presented in the form of a virtual exhibition. 

netzspannung.org is a dynamic knowledge portal for digital culture which
is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and
developed at the MARS Exploratory Media Lab of the Fraunhofer Institute
for Media Communication headed by Monika Fleischmann und Wolfgang
Strauss. The platform serves as a multi-disciplinary link between media
art and media design, science and technology and communicates the many
different activities in the media culture scene in an up-to-the-minute
information pool.

We are looking for exceptional and groundbreaking concepts and
implementations from the past year in the fields of media art, media
design and media IT. The projects can be submitted online from May 3th,
2002 on http://netzspannung.org/digital-sparks

Submission Deadline: May 31, 2002

The Politics of New Media Research: Methodologies, Debates and Practices

Edited by Mary Griffiths and Susan Yell
Monash University, Gippsland

Three contexts inform the theme of this issue. The first is the rise 
of the new communication technologies and their increasing centrality 
across the spectrum of what were formerly discrete communication 
mediums, practices and institutions. Second, the diverse genealogies 
of communications studies and research - organisational and social 
psychology, sociology, political economy, rhetoric, cultural studies, 
linguistics - have led to a corresponding diversity of methodologies 
and theoretical frameworks. Third, a new generation of communications 
scholars (spawned from the rapid expansion of university 
communications programs) is emerging as more Net-literate than their 
predecessors and is contributing to the acceleration in the changing 
research agenda.

This issue aims to address questions concerning the methodologies and 
approaches appropriate to researching new communications media.  It 
calls for papers which give case studies of research in new media, 
and a defence or critique of the chosen methodologies.  We invite 
papers which take up one or more of the following issues:

* the politics of new communications research agendas - what is 
funded, and why?  How do research agendas relate to institutional 
* the nature of the fit between more traditional methodologies and 
new technologies - e.g. how does new media research challenge the 
boundaries of empirical research, which is also the dominant paradigm 
in research and funding criteria across the disciplines?
* frameworks for theorising and researching the new forms of 
embodiment associated with new media - how can the interface between 
'real' and virtual bodies be conceptualised?
* suitable and successful qualitative research methodologies - is the 
virtual environment more or less easily researched?
* the changing ethics of privacy, security and data collection as 
they relate to intellectual property regimes;
* the role of interdisciplinarity in new media research; which 
disciplines count as authoritative, and which (if any) are privileged?
* is the corporatised university providing a supportive framework for 
emerging new media researchers, and what sort of research is being 
conducted by networks independent of the university?

Papers should be approx. 4500 words. Under special circumstances 
longer papers will be considered. Please send us 3 hard copies of 
your paper, double -spaced on white A4 paper, with your name and 
institutional affiliation on a separate sheet to facilitate anonymity 
in the evaluation process. You may submit electronically - please 
contact the editors for details. An abstract (max. 100 words) is 
required, and a biographical note of no more than 50 words. 
Referencing should follow the MLA Style Manual (1988) 'works cited' 
form of documentation (for further details see 
http://www.bedfordbooks.com/rd/mla/cited.html). Discursive notes 
should be avoided. Full details of editorial policy are available on

_The End of a Festival_


// Twenty days ago, in a hot sunday afternoon, we send a _call for noise_ 
for a certain number of lists and friends. We asked people to send audio 
and visual noises to mix up, in a three-night experience, with projections 
and live music. The response from all over the world was great and we are 
happy to release some results of the project.

// But the game isn't over, yet!

// We move into this project to develop new ways of "public performance" 
that excide the classic"on-stage" experience.
We are interested in the idea of public performance as a stream of sounds, 
images, loops and videos, unleashed from set lists, tech rides and time 
limits. The two last experiences took place at the ESCAPE and Torre Malakoff.

// You can keep sending images, sounds, loops, videos to 
radio_recombo {AT} manguebit.org.br, we'll be thankfull and we gonna use all 
material on the next Radio Re:combo, allways a site near you...

**Press Release**


Montreal, May 2, 2002 - The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and
Technology is launching a call for research proposals in the program of
grants for researcher in residence. This program being in its second year,
the Foundation hopes to foster critical thinking about how technologies
affect people and their natural and cultural environments.

Following an international competition open to historians, curators,
critics, independent researchers, artists and scientists, the Foundation
will enable two researchers to work in the collections and archives of the
Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D). The research project must
focus on one of the Foundation's collections; a profile of the Foundation's
collections is available at the following URL: 

Twice a year, the CR+D will welcome a researcher for three to six months.
The researchers will be given access to computer and audiovisual equipment,
the Foundation's database and its documentary collections. Their research
findings will be published on the Foundation's Web site.

For more details on this initiative, consult the program of grants for
researcher in residence in the Funding Programs section of the Foundation's
Web site: 

The deadline for applying is *August 31, 2002*. If you don't have Internet
access, or if you have any questions about how to submit a project to the
Foundation, please contact the program officer Jacques Perron.

Subject: New Media initiatives in developing countries...?


My name is Manne Granqvist and I am an undergraduate informatics (systems
development) student from Sweden. I am combining informatics studies with
social sciences and focusing on the political/social aspects of systems
development and information technology.I am particularily interested in
economically poor regions and how information technology might be used to
support and emancipate people in those areas.

This fall I will carry through a thesis work in a low-income-country. I
would like to study some project that tries to develop and/or use
technology in alternative ways, on the conditions of the indegenous
culture/situation. I thought that maybe you know of any ICT projects in
such countries that you yourselves find promising and that you think would
suit my particular field of interest.I am particularily looking at Latin
America since (a) I know some Spanish and (b) I have been given a grant to
go there.

I would be very grateful for any help you may provide.

Maybe it would be better to post a request like this one on the nettime
discussion board...?
