BEYOND AUTHORSHIP
24-27 June 2014
University of Newcastle Australia

This symposium seeks to move beyond authorship as the primary focus of
corpus-based studies in early modern literature, to consider broader
questions of language and style, genre and form, influence and
adaptation; to interrogate the new literary histories enabled by
electronic text corpora, and the new methods of analysis they make
possible.

Confirmed speakers include Douglas Bruster, Gabriel Egan, Jonathan
Hope, MacDonald P. Jackson, Lynne Magnusson, and Michael Witmore.

The convenors, Hugh Craig and Brett D. Hirsch, invite proposals for
long and short papers (20/40 min) and quick-fire poster presentations
(5 min). For consideration, abstracts should be received by email to
<hugh.craig at newcastle.edu.au> and <brett.hirsch at uwa.edu.au> before 14
February 2014.

21st Jan: Info-viz and political activism. Paolo Gerbaudo (King's College London)
Abstract: Info-visualisation is a practice that has been widely utilised in contemporary digital culture, in order to get to grips with the complex patterns emerging from huge sets of data. Among the different categories utilising info-viz, including programmers, marketers, financial analysts, security personnel, and government advisors, also activists have found in info-viz a powerful visual language to get to grips with the complexity of social grievances and economic problems in a highly complex and globalised world. In my presentation I will look at the political positioning of info-visualisation as a radical political language in collectives such as Bureau d-Etudes and RTMark, as well as drawing on my own work infondoalmar.info. I will discuss the extent to which info-viz can constitute a platform for radical politics, and look at some possible lines of future development of these practices.
Speaker bio: Paolo Gerbaudo (1979) is lecturer in Digital Culture and Society at King's College London. He has worked as a reporter for the Italian Left newspaper Il Manifesto and has been involved in anti-corporate, global justice and ecologist campaigns. His current research focuses on the use of new media and social media by social movements and emerging digital parties. He is the author of Tweets and the Streets (2012), a book analysing social media activism in the popular protest wave of 2011, from the Arab Spring, to the indignados and Occupy Wall Street. He has a PhD from Goldsmiths College, where he worked under the supervision of Professor Nick Couldry. He has previously taught at Middlesex University and the American University in Cairo. He is currently the convenor of the Digital Culture and Political Protest module at King's College London.

The event is free of charge but registration is required.
