- Journalism and practices of othering the body
- The mediated body as spectacle
- Celebrity bodies and the spectacles of transformation
- The abject body 
- Stigma and the body
- De-colonizing and de-westernising the mediated body
- Neoliberalism, policy and austerity politics
- (Dis)Empowerments of the disabled body
- The objectification of the disabled body in the media
- Contemporary coverage of disability in print/online/television/radio
- Reality television and the body
- Auto-ethnographic accounts of the body in / through digital media
- The medicalised body in the media
- Representing wounds and scars
- Affective labour of bodies
- The body and trauma

Digital Humanities + Data Journalism Symposium

This September, the University of Miami Libraries, School of Communication, Center for Computational Science, and College of Arts and Sciences will host the second annual Digital Humanities + Data Journalism Symposium (DH+DJ) http://dhdj.com.miami.edu. This year we have an incredible line-up of speakers, including Deb Verhoeven, Alberto Cairo, Mona Chalabi, Thomas Padilla, Safiya Noble, and more.

Registration is now open ($99 inclusive for the full conference) -- please join us! If you're curious about what the Symposium is like, check out this write-up of last year's DH+DJ -- or feel free to email the organizers with questions at dhdj.info at miami.edu.

Digital humanists and data journalists face common challenges, opportunities, and goals, such as how to communicate effectively with the public. They use similar software tools, programming languages, and techniques, and they can learn from each other. Join us for lectures and tutorials about shared data types, visualization methods, and data communication — including text visualization, network diagrams, maps, databases and data wrangling. In addition to the scheduled content, there will be opportunities for casual conversation and networking.
