Digital Genres

Alex Golub passes along the Call for Papers for the Digital Genres: Semiotic Technologies this Side of the Millennium conference, taking place May 30-31 at the University of Chicago.

What can slash, blogs, massively multiplayer games, fan fiction, chat rooms, and other popular genres tell us about how humans communicate? And how do they shed light on human meaning making more generally? Moving away from Seldes' concept of 'art' to a more embracing notion of 'genre' as a general method of understanding the structured, meaningful, and dialogic nature of cultural production, the conference examines a wide variety of cultural production enabled by digital technology. Please join us... Papers do not need to be overly-academic if you are not yourself overly-academic.

I'm looking forward to this and hope to see you there!
