How do we move beyond a fascination with new digital things and
interfaces that we engage with on the internet, which are increasingly
becoming the objects and sites of our research and creative practices?
How do we engage with these on their own terms, and perhaps also against
the grain? What "new" is being brought in, performed, and afforded by
these digital artefacts in our daily lives? How can our concerns and
practices benefit from developing an awareness of their aesthetics,
functions, and politics?
This call is for researchers, workers, and others interested in closely
– or from a distance – commenting on these topics and questions.
Please note that we are interested in essays that explore the 'how'
question regarding studying internet and society in India. We very much
welcome essays that reflect on the author's own research practices and
challenges, and/or involve multi/trans-media approaches.
Do write back to us if you have any queries.
