Panel on Latin American Digital Culture

Latamcyber is pleased to announce that a proposed panel on Latin American Digital Culture, put together by the latamcyber project members, has been accepted at the 50th Anniversary Conference of the Society for Latin American Studies. The conference will take place at Birkbeck, University of London, on 3 and 4 April 2014.

The panel covers topics such as local expression and new media technologies, tactical media, the representation of locality online, digital video, mobile media, the role of social media in urban protest movements, and the creation of local content. It aims to offer a broad range of methodologies and approaches, combining and drawing on approaches informed by cultural studies, visual culture studies, internet ethnography, and public opinion, amongst many others.

Papers are invited on topics related to any country within Latin America, and also including Latina/o and Chicana/o communities within the US. Papers are particularly encouraged that focus on the following aspects:

. the interface between local expression and new media technologies

. the practices of tactical media

. the representation of locality and place online

. digital video and mobile media

. the role of digital technologies and social media in urban protest movements

. the relationship between internet use and democratization and/or modes of political participation

You can see the full panel abstract, and submit a paper for consideration at the panel here. For more details on the conference, see the SLAS conference website.

We look forward to seeing many of our readers at SLAS 2014!
