     Call for Papers: 'joke' - edited by Paul Denvir & E. Sean Rintel

It has been argued that jokes produce arousal in social beings because they
represent a rupture in, or a temporary subversion of, the routine character
of social life. Laughter, it is further argued, is a spontaneous
physiological response to the violation of deeply embedded expectations
about 'what kind of thing should be happening here.' If this is true, then
we may further argue that an examination of jokes, as apparent breaches of
a known-in-common social order, can tell us much about that very social
order. If we examine jokes, will we find that there is always some kind of
cultural expectation being poked and prodded?  And why should we enjoy this
so much? Perhaps jokes provide us with morally, politically, or
interactionally safe ways to express our relationship with the restrictions
that any kind of order - even the order we voluntarily produce and
reproduce - will inexorably impose?

We may also wonder what it is that social beings actually and practically
do with jokes. Whatever jokes may 'mean' in the philosophical sense, it is
hard to ignore the fact that jokes, whether in everyday social life, in
films, or on stage at the Improv, are produced in situ by social actors in
particular times and places for the consumption of other social actors in
particular times and places. We need to know more about what jokes do for
tellers and recipients as they jointly produce an intelligible social
order. Contributors are invited to discuss potential contributions with
either editor via the issue's email address and encouraged to submit well
in advance of the due date.

M/C Journal was founded (as "M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture") in 1998

Subject: CFP: "Identifying New Media," Winter 2003 special issue, Post Identity

Post Identity, a national, fully-refereed journal of the humanities, publishes
scholarship that problematizes the narratives underlying individual, social, and
cultural identity formations; that investigates the relationship between
identity formations and texts; and that argues how such formations can be

Increasingly we, our contributors, and our readers are finding that the most
powerful of these cultural formations and their most provocative critical
challenges are combining text, images, and sound: we use to watch films; we now
consume DVD assemblages of multiple cuts, interviews, and games. We use to only
print our work; we are now publishing web sites that embed that work in
multimedia settings. 

In response to these cultural and disciplinary changes, Post Identity has
partnered with the University of Michigan’s Scholarly Publishing Office to
transform itself into an audio-, graphic-, and video-enhanced web-based journal
that can make available the new forms and subjects of contemporary critiques of
identity, as well as more traditional text-based scholarship. 

The theme for our Winter 2003 special issue is “Identifying New Media.” We are
looking for submissions that theorize how new media forms (DVDs; e-books;
Internet blogs, digital archives, interactive gaming; etc.) are changing
cultural and academic understandings of identity and authorship, and/or how new
media might provide models for new forms of scholarship. We especially are
interested in experimental work that performs its theory, such as essays or
projects that offer alternative models to the standard academic essay. We are
interested in the relationship between the form and content of academic
discourse, and the ways in which this discourse might evolve in light of the new
media scene. 

We invite the immediate submission of 300-word abstracts of essays and other
academic projects on this theme. We encourage submissions from a variety of
theoretical perspectives and from all disciplines for which the critique of
identity is of vital and central concern. Final essays/projects should fall
within the range of 3,000 to 10,000 words and will be due September 30, 2003. 

Please submit abstracts to Professor Rosemary Weatherston at Past print issues of Post Identity are available until
September 2003 at The new web-based format
of PI is under construction at

Call for Papers

Critical Discourse Studies: An interdisciplinary journal for the social 
A Routlegde Journal -- New for 2004

Norman Fairclough, Lancaster University, UK
Phil Graham, University of Queensland, Australia
Jay Lemke, University of Michigan, USA
Ruth Wodak, University of Vienna, Austria

Authors are invited to submit papers for publication in Critical discourse 
Studies, a peer-reviewed international journal published by 
Routledge-Taylor & Francis.

Critical Discourse Studies is an interdisciplinary journal for the social 
sciences. Its primary aim is to publish critical research that advances our 
understanding of how discourse figures in social processes, social 
structures, and social change.

The journal has been established in response to the proliferation of 
critical discourse studies across the social sciences and humanities. We 
will consider for publication papers that meet the needs of scholars in 
diverse disciplines and areas of study which develop critical perspectives 
on the relationship between discourse and social dynamics.

Relevant areas and disciplines include, but are not limited to:
cultural studies
ethnic studies
gender studies
legal studies
literary studies
management studies
media studies
migration studies
political economy
political science
technology studies
urban studies

The ediitors also welcome papers which connect critical academic research 
with practical concerns and agendas, including those of activist and 
grassroots political movements.

The scope of critical discourse studies is not limited to linguistic 
studies, or articles that are primarily empirical or analytical. Critical 
examination of non-linguistic phenomena that take a significant discourse 
orientation, as well as theoretical and methodological papers that advance 
critical understandings of discursive phenomena, are welcomed.

Recognising the diversity, depth, and history of scholarship in the growth 
of critical discourse studies, no particular theoretical, disciplinary, or 
methodological "schools" or paradigms will be privileged over others in the 
selection of papers for publication. The primary criteria for publication 
are originality, scholarly rigor, coherence of argument, relevance and 
timeliness of research.

Critical Discourse Studies encourages contributions from both new and 
established scholars. The journal recognises that the new and rapidly 
changing social relations of the current age call for new approaches and 
new understandings that bridge disciplinary and cultural boundaries. 
Therefore the editors strongly encourage the submission of papers that help 
us achieve these aims.

Critical Discourse Studies aims to be accessible. It aims for papers that 
are written clearly, explain key terms and concepts in an accessible way 
for readers at many levels, and recognise the needs and interests of its 
diverse community of readers.

For further information, or to submit manuscripts, email .

Further information, including notes for authors, is available at the 
Routledge-Taylor and Francis Critical Discourse Studies webpage:

               Forum e-Government of the Austrian Computer Society

Content: Numerous applications use the Internet for business and
administrative transactions. The question remains, however, how the
Internet can be used for the support of democratic decision making and
citizen participation ("e-democracy"). In order to achieve this,
technical challenges have to be solved; however, also legal and

volume is to summarize the current state of the discussion not only in
Austria, but also on the development of e-democracy on an
international scale. 

This call for contributions addresses mainly the presenters in the
course of the working group but contributions from all researchers and
practitioners in the field of e-democracy are welcome. Contributions
may specialize in the fields of IT-related issues, legal, political or
sociological aspects of e-democracy. Both theoretical research,
comparative studies and case study reports are welcome. 

Publication: The volume will be published in the series OCG/Forum

Editors: Prof. Alexander Prosser, Mag. Robert Krimmer 
The members of the working group serve as review board. 
Language of contributions: German or English 

Kind of contribution: Either a Full Paper (4.-5.000 words) or a Short
Note (1.500 words) shall be submitted. 

Important Dates: 

31st July 2003: Deadline for submitting extended abstracts (500 words)

20th August 2003: Author Notification of Acceptance 
30th September 2003: Submission of camera-ready papers 

The proceedings volume will be presented during the OCG AT21
conference in Vienna (18th November 2003) and Graz (4th December 2003)
to the general public (AT21 dates are subject to change).

Subject: M/C: 'logo' issue now available


                         M/C - Media and Culture
    is proud to present issue three in volume six of the award-winning

                               M/C Journal

              'logo' - Edited by John Pace & Jason A. Wilson

Ever since the printing press gave us the logotype (or since even earlier,
when chattels and communiqués carried the owner's specific 'brand') symbols
have been created to condense ideas and functions of ownership,
advertisement, distinction and desire. In concert with the rise and
proliferation of capitalism, the logo gained importance, to the point where
contemporary western capital is primarily concerned with symbolic
production. From a simple distinguishing mark, to seductive enticement, the
logo now rides shotgun on the interface of contemporary capitalism.

The prominence of the contemporary logo is evidenced by the attention given
it in schools of management, design and cultural studies, by the feverish
corporate work attendant upon brand maintenance, and not least by the
recent focus by anti-capitalist movements on the logo as a ready symbol,
and startling vulnerability, in the edifice of corporate capitalism. Naomi
Klein's No Logo, a publishing sensation in 2000, gave a popular account of
(and manifesto for) activism that focuses on the brand-driven
multinational; groups like Adbusters modify advertisements to critical
ends; boycotts and actions target particular logo-dependent corporations.

More recently, though, the "logo-centric" approach embodied in such
critiques and actions has been questioned for its effectiveness, and the
quality of its analyses. It's not only other activists wondering whether
all this reduces to a form of consumer sovereignty-style activism, but
others who want to proclaim the aesthetic value and efficacy of the logo as
a lubricant of flows and exchange. Is logo-based activism the new left-
puritanism? Is it too unsystematic a critique to make real changes? Or is
it the last, best chance to rally critique against an increasingly
pervasive and dromocratic form of capital? Is the logo the brain-candy of
consumerism, or the latest refinement of communicative (t)arts?

The articles in this issue address a wide range of these issues. We invite
you to explore the views of our contributors!

staircase showing the orignal webcasted sequences.
webcasting or streaming is the live-transmission of audio/video via the
internet. to transmit and receive audio/video-data in low bandwidth as
well, one needs the smallest possible traffic-volume to be accessible. to
be like that the audio/video data has to undergo strong compression, which
causes a clearly noticeable and a strong deforming effect on the video.
this effect caused by real-time compressing and encoding of data varies
its progression in time and its intensity. the members of pingfm have been
working with this aspect ever since. is an internetbased platform for audio/video experiments.

Subject: InfoTechWarPeace posts interesting "intervention" on "technologies of empathy"

Hey all,

Found this really interesting project InfoTechWarPeace that just did 
this feature on what they call "Technologies of Empathy" or 
"technologies that promote communication, understanding, and empathy." 
Seems like a kind of new and interesting idea. Apparently they've been 
at this for a couple years and this feature has video commentary from 
Geert Lovink (see him on <nettime> a lot), so they've got some cred.

Definitely check out the video clips and some of the essays posted. 
They also have a listserv that I joined.

Subject: Note on Evian and the organisation of the movement

Dear all,

Some of you might be interested in Max Watson's recent note on Evian and
the organisation of the movement. It has just appeared in the journal
'ephemera' ( - see issue 3(2)

Where Do We Go From Here? Notes on the Anti-Capitalist Movement After
Max Watson

At the end of May this year, the G8 leaders of the world met in Evian,
France, and the European anti-capitalist movement met at the same time
to protest against their world of war, imperialism, third world debt and
famine. The protestors gathered in Geneva and Annemasse, as the 30km red
zone around Evian made entrance into the town impossible for all but the
delegates of the richest nations on earth. After joining the protests
and some of the debates in Geneva, I would like to take the opportunity
of this note to report back on some developments from the Evian
protests, and introduce some of the questions and issues of organisation
faced by the anti-capitalist movement. The Evian anti-G8 protests were
an opportunity to bring together the European social movements, the
anti-capitalist movement, and the anti-war movements. The coming
together of the European Social Forums in Florence last year made the
anti-war movement truly international. What exactly is the relationship
between the anti-war movements and the social forums? How are they to
develop, locally and nationally, in the UK? What need is there for such
organisation? And on what level are the social forums actually creating
alternative democratic assemblies to the G8 World leaders of

Subject: 306090 06> Call for submissions


For Immediate Release:

306090 06>
SHIFTING INFRASTRUCTURES is accepting submissions for publication.

Call for works:

Our territorial and occupational processes are increasingly negotiated
through mobile communication methods and information technologies. Systems
of communication, data and material distribution (newscasts, fashion
trends, freight shipping, peer-to-peer file sharing software) create their
own unique infrastructures and inform existing exchange structures.
Newscasts, for example, require and affect events reported as well as the
physical hardware and transmission channels through which they broadcast.

Thresholds, transitions and discontinuities embedded in this dynamic of
infrastructural exchange suggest new (participatory or empirical)
processes to strategically discharge immanent manifestations of matter
and information.

306090 06>SHIFTING INFRASTRUCTURES will examine the current technological
infiltration into civic and social realms, where physical and cultural
infrastructures across diverse spatial and temporal scales are redefining
themselves as shifting, modulating entities via the use of new

Submissions are due 30 November 2003.

Emergent Voices: 306090 Publishes politically charged articles and
projects that defy contemporary norms. We encourage work of a
controversial nature which challenges the academic, cultural and
professional institution of architecture. 306090 is dedicated to
representing the work of students young professionals in architecture
and design.
