*This is a reminder that the deadline for responding to roundtable
questions for the upcoming Flow 2018 conference (Precarity, Preservation,
and Praxis) is approaching. We invite responses to the roundtable questions
in the form of a brief (150-word) abstract. To ensure full consideration,
please submit your abstract by Sunday, May 20 at 5 PM (CST). With the
casualization of labor and the instability of the job market, precarity has
become an increasingly pressing issue for both the media industries and the
academy. Equally precarious is the state of preservation, as the production
and circulation of media content outstrips the resources and workforce
assigned to preserve it. Woven throughout and between precarity and
preservation is praxis, the ways in which labor, strategy, and skill are
marshaled to combat these threats in the industry and in academia. As such,
the 2018 Flow Conference, to be held September 27-29th at the University of
Texas at Austin, has chosen to focus on this tripartite theme of precarity,
preservation, and praxis.This year’s roundtable questions
<> include a rich
assortment of related topics and issues surrounding: - Access & archives-
Authorship & authority- History & materiality- Labor & compensation-
Pedagogy & praxis- Policy & politics- Identity & nationality- Transcultural
flows & borders- Precarity & professionalization- Technology &
ephemeralityFor the full list of questions and complete details on the
conference and submission process, please visit the Flow Conference website
<>. We will notify all
participants via email in mid-June. Upon acceptance, respondents will be
asked to expand their abstract to a 600-800 word position paper that will
be due in late August 2018.Please direct any questions or concerns to
