MZES Open Social Science Conference 2019 (OSSC19)

Open Science refers to a broad, transdisciplinary movement aiming to open up research processes to promote the integrity, reproducibility, and value of scholarly work. Responding to pressing credibility and replicability problems in science, this movement has thoroughly changed the fields of psychology and economy. Clearly, a similar fundamental rearrangement is coming in all social sciences, including political science, sociology, and communication. This interdisciplinary conference brings together a mix of leading senior and junior scholars to present and discuss state of the art and future directions for open science practices in the social sciences.

21 Mar to 23 Mar 2019

Gorizia, Italy

Automation, Animation and the Imitation of Life in Cinema and Media

the 2019 Udine/Gorizia International Film Studies Conference will investigate the interrelationships between automation, representation and “viewing/listening dispositives” from early to late modernity/postmodernity. In doing this, we would draw on the “1900 episteme” (which is the main feature of the “technical society that come into being in the 17th century and became the flourishing industrial society of 19th century”) and the tripartition spectator (or user)-machine-representation” (Albera and Tortajada, 2010). More precisely, we aim to stress the function of automatism in long-term dynamics of dispossession, integration, training, disorientation, deprivation, proletarization, and rejection of the human being/“subject” as a creator/producer and as a consumer/viewer/listener: how do these dispositives imitate human faculties? And how do they imitate the world that surrounds us? How do they imitate life?
