Journalism, media and surveillance

The Internet and social media create new opportunities for surveillance. Governments, military organisations, intelligence agencies, corporations, market researchers, and advertisers have the capacity to erase privacy and reshape the conditions of human autonomy. Mass media representations can, potentially, legitimise or delegitimise contemporary surveillance practices. These developments threaten journalistic practice just as they create new opportunities for counter-surveilling institutions of power. How then, should we understand the interrelationships which conjoin journalism, media and surveillance? Conference participants will, we hope, respond to this general question.

International Academic Conference "Manga, Comics and Japan: Area Studies as Media Studies"

The conference will focus on three aspects:
(1) “Japan as Mangaesque,” related to the highly mediatized nature of contemporary Japanese culture, i.e. its media ecology, highlighting global and local mediations rather than national branding;
(2) “Manga Pedagogy,” applying the mediatic perspective to methodologies of Manga Studies within university programs and academic scholarship; and
(3) “Manga as Comics,” foregrounding media specifity in relation to comics and thereby extending the scope of Manga Studies beyond that of a primarily Japan-related field.

Attendance is free, but pre-registration is required for non-speakers. Please send an email with the heading “Manga conference, pre-registration” to either jberndt@su.se or ida.kirkegaard@su.se by 20 August 2018.
