    Believing in technology - mediatisation of the future and the future of mediatisation

    Ce dossier se propose d’identifier, de mettre en exergue et d’interroger les caractéristiques et les enjeux de la médiatisation du futur de l’homme et de la société dans le contexte spécifique des croyances et dogmes de la foi en la technologie. Entendue comme une partie du processus de construction communicative de la réalité socio-culturelle actuelle d’un monde dans lequel la science conquise par l’intelligence artificielle est rattrapée par la religion, la médiatisation du futur, d’une part, agglutine les craintes d’une apocalypse où la prise technologique du contrôle sur la vie serait le sens de l’avenir de l’humanité, et, d’autre part, suscite l’espérance quasi évangélique d’une percolation salutaire de la technologie dans le corps humain et dans son environnement.

    3rd International Conference ComSymbol

    The objective of this conference is to provide answers to two major issues: How religions being conquered by digital technologies are expanding and renewing their community life experiences and their social networks by generating new symbols and signifiers whose rapid spread in the public sphere is based on the development of innovative forms of production of science and knowledge circulation? How scholars, communication professionals, social activists, journalists, political, industrial and economic stakeholders are involved in the social transformation that accompanies the keen interest of religions for digital technologies and how to understand these distinct but interrelated changes?

    European Muslim's Participation in (New) Media

    The increasing growth of the Internet is reshaping Islamic communities worldwide. Non-conventional media and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming more popular among the Muslim youth as among all parts of the society. The new channels of information and news attract new Muslim publics in Europe. The profile of the people using these networks range from college students to Islamic intellectual authorities. Such an easy and speedy way of connecting to millions of people across the globe also attracts the attention of social movements, which utilize these networks to spread their message to a wider public. Many Muslim networks and social movements, political leaders, Islamic institutions and authorities use these new media spaces to address wider Muslim and also non-Muslim communities, it is not uncommon that they also address and reach certain so-called radical groups.
