The Society for Phenomenology and Media (SPM) is pleased to receive abstracts (200 words maximum) for consideration of inclusion in its 21st annual international conference. The conference will be sponsored and hosted by the Universidad de Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia.

Proposals for 3-person panels are also accepted. These should be organized around specific media — for example: film, the Internet, mobile communication, medieval manuscripts, print media (books, newspapers, and magazines), stage drama, television, visual art, dance, etc. Panel proposals should include three papers, one of them by the panel organizer. Individual abstract submissions are assigned to a panel by the conference host.

We kindly ask contributors to align their submission with the conference theme, but welcome proposals about all areas covered by the Society.

The Society for Phenomenology and Media encourages interdisciplinary approaches and theoretical diversity. Individual papers and panels need not be limited to phenomenological approaches. In the past, papers have come from diverse theoretical perspectives, including critical theory, cultural studies, hermeneutics, Marxism, New Historicism, post-colonial theory, pragmatism, semiotics, speech-act theory, and so on. Participants have come from a wide range of disciplines: philosophy, media studies, communications, psychology, history, political science, sociology, rhetoric, literary theory, cognitive science, cultural studies, and other fields.

Doctoral students are invited to submit proposals, but should note that SPM limits the number of papers from students.

Conference abstracts and panel proposals submitted are peer-reviewed. Papers accepted and presented are published in the SPM annual Conference Proceedings; selected papers are also published in Glimpse, the annual publication of SPM.

What We Say about Media

and What That Says about Us:

Medium, Its Message, and Geopolitics

The Society for Phenomenology and Media (SPM) is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its 21st International Conference to be held in Medellín, Colombia. Sponsored by the Universidad de Antioquia, the conference will take place Wednesday, 13 March to Friday 15 March 2019.

The overarching concern of SPM is discussion of media in all of its particulars. All schools of thought are welcome, and SPM does not situate a conference theme within the context and vocabulary of any one approach, thereby placing those who do not share that approach at a disadvantage.

Since 1999, conference papers have dealt with a wide variety of media: The Internet, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, medieval manuscripts and print, radio and sound, TV, film, painting, sequential art (comix), social/anti-social media, dance, stage drama, etc. In the 20th SPM Conference in Iceland, for example, the suggested theme was “Global Media Literacy in the Digital Age,” but it should be noted that conference participants are not required to write and speak on a prescribed theme. The only condition for participation is that the paper be concerned with media, either in practice or theory.

Theoretical papers have focused on mediation, visualization, media intersubjectivity, media embodiment and disembodiment, empathy, and the specifics of individual media, and so on. While some papers have often been involved in questions of technology, participants need not work within the narrow scope of the philosophy of technology. Others prefer to situate their investigation within the political and economic context of specific media; for example, some prefer to speak on the relationship of existing media to apartheid, exploitation, propaganda and “fake news” rather than questions of media epistemology, ontology, and aesthetics.

SPM does not advocate for any one school of thought of intellectual ideology. Analytic, linguistic, common sense philosophy, phenomenology, post-phenomenology, and hermeneutics are welcome, and the variety of Marxist approaches are encouraged to join SPM.

Suggested Topics of Discussion:

Post-humanism: Racial, National,

Gender, Class and Species Transgression

in a Digital Era

The Uses of Media to Support Apartheid, Segregation, Internal Colonialism,

and Neo-Colonialism

If applicants want to join the discussion on post-humanism at the conference, they are encouraged to speak within a pro or con context.

Pro

Post-humanist ideas have created a storm of controversy in recent years. For that reason, SPM believes it needs to be analyzed and discussed in greater detail. Those interested in this topic are invited to submit an abstract.

In the last decades, both posthumanism and “new materialism” have become important topics in different disciplines. In these discourses, the complex interrelation that exists between nature and culture, between matter and discourse, has been made evident. The difference between nature and culture is being replaced by a non-dualistic concept of interaction. Moreover, this difference has been strongly questioned in scientific and technological breakthroughs that apply new forms of hybridization between machines and human beings.

Con

Opponents of post-humanist ideology claim that its use of science is opportunistic and inaccurate, elitist, Eurocentric, racist, and question its reliance on the tradition of European irrationalism. Those in the tradition of humanism question post-humanism’s inclusion and reliance on philosophers such as Peter Sloterdijk, accused by Habermas of “flirting with fascism,” and the Nazi philosopher Martin Heidegger. Opponents of post-humanism come from a variety of positions, relying on thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Noam Chomsky, and Hortense Spillers.

Media: Apartheid, Segregation,

Internal Colonialism, Neo-Colonialism

Many themes exist within this theme: blackbodies, négritude, the Harlem Renaissance, the medium of stage and film in August Wilson's work, Orientalism, testimonios vs. "academic truth," among many others. Thinkers include Frantz Fanon, Violeta Parra, Tran Duc Thao, Rigoberta Menchú Rigoberta Menchú, Juan Rulfo, Aimé Césaire, Edward Said, and so on. Panel proposals are welcome.
