Cette journée souhaite interroger les évolutions qui ont traversé le Web, ses usages et ses acteurs depuis les années 1990 autour de la thématique de l’attention. Du nommage au profilage, des compteurs et premières bannières à une véritable économie de l’attention et de la recommandation, des premières interfaces Web au développement du Web Design, des identités numériques en gestation jusqu’aux identités post-mortem, nous analyserons l’évolution de l’attention portée aux internautes, à leurs identités, à leurs expressions numériques et celle que l’on cherche à susciter de leur part. Plusieurs dimensions seront prises en compte et croisées qu’elles soient techniques, sociales, économiques, politiques, juridiques, éthiques ou encore cognitives.

Call for proposal Changing Platforms of Memory Practices. Technologies, User Generations and Amateur Media Dispositifs – March 30th

10-12 September 2015, University of Groningen, the Netherlands

Keynote speakers:·

John Ellis, Professor of Media Arts, Royal Holloway, University of London

Roger Odin, Professeur Émérite – Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3

José van Dijck, Professor of Comparative Media Studies, University of Amsterdam

Call for proposals:

We currently witness a process of rapid transition of mediated memory practices. Digital media platforms like YouTube enable the distribution of private audiovisual memories that differ radically from past amateur practices and media uses. The conference aims to grasp the technical, social and cultural dimensions and changes in the use of technologies of memory, such as home movies, home videos, sound recording and digital technologies. We propose to explore the complex relationship between media technologies, user generations, and mediated memory practices from both a contemporary and long term historical perspective. Papers might focus on the operationalization of concepts of, e.g. dispositif, user generations, media archaeology, socio-technical ensembles or media ecologies.
