Critical Digital and Social Media Research Conference
March 6-8, 2019
Umeå University

Organised by DIGSUM (Centre for Digital Social Research) at Umeå 
University and the CAMRI (Communication and Media Research Institute), 
University of Westminster

https://www.umu.se/en/events/critical-digital--social-media-research_7318389/

Keynote speakers: Mark Andrejevic, Christian Fuchs, Kylie Jarrett, Simon 
Lindgren, Evgeny Morozov, Tiziana Terranova

This combined symposium and PhD workshop aims at showing that critical 
theories, critical methodologies and critical practices are cornerstones 
of digital and social media research and how they act as tools for 
questioning big data fetishism and the dominance of overly data-driven 
analytics.

The event, aside from the keynotes, presents an opportunity for PhD 
students and postdocs to present a short paper and receive feedback from 
CAMRI and DIGSUM researchers, and prominent international participants.

Applications to take part in the conference are accepted on a running 
basis starting November 29 2018, and the first 16 candidates to be 
accepted will have their participation (all travels and accommodation) 
fully funded by DIGSUM and CAMRI.
