Prácticas mediáticas y productores culturales (evento en BCN)

Filed under: Noticias,TICs,Vida de tesista — Edgar Gómez Cruz @ 11:27 am

Elisenda, todo un hub multitasking, ha logrado concretar y cerrar, ella solita, un evento impresionante en el que participaremos todo el resto del equipo de Mediacciones. Les dejo la información íntegra porque creo puede resultarle interesante a más de uno (nada más con Slater y Couldry el evento ya valdrá la pena, pero si además está Dorle y Bird, pues qué mejor). Y por si fuera poco, hay un call for papers (más abajo)

MEDIA PRACTICES AND CULTURAL PRODUCERS EASA Media Anthropology Network Second Workshop
Barcelona, Spain, November 6-7, 2008

The workshop addresses media practices and the arenas of cultural production in the context of the “new media” landscape. In broad terms, the workshop will inquire into the leading theoretical and methodological
perspectives for doing anthropological research on digital mediated practices and their implications for the understanding of people’s interaction with media. The aim is to explore the circulatory flows of media practices and in particular, how digital technology use is changing media culture, cultures of media circulation and the very definition of cultural producer.

Anthropological and ethnographic studies of media have been largely focused on analyzing reception of media products (television, radio, press and film) and media consumption related to domestic appropriation of technologies. There is also a wide body of research devoted to the study of the political dimension of alternative and indigenous media. However, there has been a separation between media and Internet studies, and between the analysis of media reception and practices of self production, such as family photography or home video. Current digital media practices urge scholars to examine self production contents and media flows from a broader perspective that cross-cuts divisions between public and private, media corporative products and people releases, home production and cultural industry, political activism and domestic affairs. The workshop aims to become a locus for discussing innovative theoretical and methodological approaches that deal with such interwoven practices of media production and consumption.

The workshop will address questions like: how is self production entering circulatory matrices of media and power? How does cultural production itself become a practice of reception or consumption? What are the
implications of understanding audiences as cultural producers? Do new media practices redefine the role of cultural producers? Are self production and content sharing new cultural forms of media production?
What are the cultural implications of people’s media productive practices? Rather than an uncritical celebration of people’s empowerment, this workshop encourages exchange of research experiences about ways of doing ethnographic research by following social networks and the circuits of new media practices.

  1. Avoid paying extra for a home merely as it has a delightful view.
    You could love the view, but it will perhaps not add any value all through selling time.

    If you love a home, for the view or otherwise, you may as well buy it.
    Be sure not to pay a padded price though!

    When seeking to buy a home, be sure there is adequate
    parking for the vehicles. Especially for
    walk-ups along with other dwellings that do not have a
    driveway, you will require street parking. If you can find not a
    lot of spaces to park near the residence, you might have to walk far after parking.

  6. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!

    purchase, or promote, the particular futures deal in a specific price tag.
    There are only two potential results along with these kind of options that offer a fixed give back for those in which buy them.
