For Convergence: The Journal of Research into New Media Technologies
For Volume 3 No. 2 of the Journal (June 1997) we are seeking papers
relating to research projects or case studies on media technology and
theory. Papers addressing the work of people such as Deleuze and
Guattari, Paul Virilio, Donna Harroway, Pierre Levy etc. in the context
of developments in the field of new media/digital technologies would be
welcome. The issue will be guest-edited by Andrew Murphie, Macquarie
University, Sydney, Australia.
Submission deadline for this issue is 30 October 1996.
Convergence is a refereed academic journal which addresses the
creative, social, political and pedagogical issues raised by the advent
of new media technologies. As a research journal it provides a
forum both for monitoring and exploring developments and for publishing
vital research. Published quarterly in paper form and adopting an
inter-disciplinary approach Convergence will develop this area into an
entirely new research field. The principal aims of Convergence are:
o to develop critical frameworks and methodologies which enable the
reception, consumption and impact of new technologies to be evaluated in
their domestic, public and educational contexts
o to contextualise the study of those new technologies within existing
debates in media studies, and to address the specific implications of
the increasing convergence of media forms
o to monitor the conditions of emergence of new media technologies,
their subsequent mass production and the development of new cultural
o to promote discussion and analysis of the creative and educational
potentials of those technologies, and to contextualise those cultural
practices within wider cultural and political debates.
