Hyderabad to host international seminar on "Digitality & Communication: The Cultural Logic of Data Societies"
A three-day international seminar on "Digitality & Communication: The Cultural Logic of Data Societies" is going to be held on September 5 - 7, 2018 at the Department of Communication, the English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad.

According to conference organizers, the digital has become inescapable today as it permeates and mediates representation, exchange, interaction and symbolization calling for revisits, revisions and renewal of almost all domains of human enquiry.  Thus, the enormous social consequences of technologies devoted to big data and algorithmic processes have also opened up new fields of enquiry that require more scholarly attention.

Keeping the foregoing in view, the seminar envisages the exploration of the digital, not just in its material manifests, but also as a way of thinking, as an ideological and cultural logic that has come to define and shape human life.

"The digital turn has drastically altered the options, promises and risks associated with the intertwining domains of social, economic, religious, cultural, literary and political practices by challenging traditional barriers of speed, space, volume and expression. The transformation has been marked by a swarm of technological gadgets and assemblages in the last few decades. The enormous social consequences of technologies devoted to big data and algorithmic processes have also opened up new fields of enquiry that require more scholarly attention," informs the concept note of the seminar.

The presentations and discussions during the seminar will prod the vital historical, cultural, material and technological links that contemplate the integration of discourse, data and devices through the digital, it is informed.
