First Call for Papers - History of Computing, AI, etc. in the European South - Tensions of Europe Digital Workshop Festival

                Dear all,

Please see below (and attached) the First Call for Papers for the
International Digital Workshop on:

*Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Algorithms, Internet of
Things, Social Media, Automation, Robotics and Cybernetics: Historical and
STS Perspectives from Mediterranean/Southern/Southeastern Europe - **June
29th 2021, 10 am – 6pm (CET)*



Part of the ‘Tensions of Europe Digital Workshop Festival’, 28 June-2
July
2021 (https://shtwebinars.nl/)





The workshop aims to advance scholarly research and discussion on the
appropriation, localization, adaptation, adjustment, maintenance, repair,
use and reconfiguration in use of computing and related technologies in the
context of Mediterranean, Southern and Southeastern Europe. We are
interested in contributions that rely on historical and STS perspectives in
order to address issues of relevance to the discourses and materialities of
computing technology and science. Especially welcomed are: papers that
address critically the rhetoric of universalism surrounding computing and
related technologies; papers on the co-shaping of technology and society,
from angles that take into account issues of relevance to work, leisure,
gender, race, ethnicity, disability and borders/migration;  and papers on
the public history of computing and related technologies, which are in
conversation with fields like Cultural and Media Studies, Cultural
Heritage, Museum Studies,  Digital History, Science Communication, Digital
Heritage and Digital Humanities.

Submissions may relate (without being limited) to the following topics:

·       Histories of computing, from mainframes to microcomputers (home and
personal)

·       The emergence of the internet, the web, email and the social media
in the European South

·       Historical and STS perspectives on the technologies associated with
the so called ‘4th Industrial Revolution’: Artificial Intelligence, Big
Data, Algorithms, Internet of Things

·       Historical and STS perspectives on Automation, Robotics, Cybernetics

Deadline for abstract submissions (250 words, plus a brief author CV):* May
**2nd **2021*. Workshop participants will be invited to contribute to a
special journal issue and an edited volume, which will focus, respectively,
on historical and STS perspectives. Details on all of the above will be
provided through the workshop website, which will become available together
with the Second Call for Papers later in the spring of 2021.
