    Digital democracy: promises and illusions

    A stable and peaceful society is based on a solid and strong democracy. The democratic model is the future of any society that respects human rights. New information and communication technologies and the still poorly regulated advances in Artificial Intelligence have impacted not only all human activity, but have also contributed to reshaping the relationship with politics, citizen participation, political communication and politics. national and international. Digital democracy (or electronic, cyber, digital) is a political-social phenomenon which began to emerge around fifteen years ago in very diverse national contexts. Today, it is a tool that is used mainly for electoral expression intended for a fairly small number of citizens. The purpose of this international conference is to question the phenomenon of electronic democracy not only from an instrumental point of view (e-voting tool), but to question the conditions of possibility and possible limits.

    Ideological discourse and advertising discourse in the media and the universities

    Can we distinguish in the current discourses of the media and universities their roles in our societies? This distinction is important because it refers to the knowledge that journalists and professors put forward through their communications and actions. Do they participate objectively developing the autonomous and enlightened thinking of the citizens of today and tomorrow by democratically supporting their quest for understanding? Or have they become the spokesmen of a single, and therefore partial and partial, way of thinking? What is its legitimacy and relevance when it organizes the information transmitted according to ideological interests, such as a promotional or advertising campaign?

    Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

    This second Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence (3AI) observes that an increasing number of artworks are now inspired by or produced with advanced technologies mainly influenced by generative AI, deeply infused at the very heart of the artworks. Such development interrogates the notion of Art, including the artist and the definition of artistic approach. It also questions how artworks are discovered, exchanged, collected, and preserved. The advent of increasingly advanced digital technologies provokes profound philosophical and ethical inquiries. These ongoing transformations across artistic, cultural, economic, political, and professional realms seem to be long-lasting, with implications that have started to resonate within society.

    Alternative Mediatization of Politics: Self-Media, Web TV, and Opinion Channels

    Altermédiatisation du politique : self-médias, Web TV et chaînes d’opinion

    The forthcoming issue of the Cahiers Protagoras invites authors to delve into the mechanisms by which the (ideological) monopoly of information is circumvented and challenged. Another objective is to comprehend the mediagenic strategies deployed by political actors — mediagénie, defining their inclination to “achieve their full potential by choosing the media partner that suits them best” (Marion, 1997). Evaluating the mediativity [médiativité] of these new political communication mechanisms (each medium possessing a 'specific imaginary') is another potential area for analysis. Finally, an examination of moderation and regulation practices specific to these emerging media spaces is anticipated.

    For an international transdisciplinary chair

    This Symposium aims at discussing transdisciplinarity (TD) as an international university chair : 1) TD is beyond and through disciplines, i.e., more than mutltidisciplinarity (many disciplines not interacting) and interdisciplinarity (disciplines in interaction); 2) TD is the dialogue between technoscience (the feedback process between technology and science) and culture (philosophy, tradition, and art); 3) So, TD is the dialectical process between opposites, namely the complementarity principle, which includes disciplinarity vs. TD; 4) This TD approach can be used for concrete problem solving, in public and private organizations, including civil society.

    Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW)

    The first-ever International Conference on Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW), held in Abu Dhabi in 2019, organized to spark off a series of conferences on the subject. Four years later, and following a global epidemic, it is time to reassemble for exploring and move ahead with the practises, experiences, and challenges of digital archiving in the Arab World. The inaugural colloquium/conference examined the issues of data preservation in the Arab world and eventually resulted in a publication release that continues to serve as a reference for researching the subject today (Bayoumi & Oliveau, 2020). At DAAW|2024, we aspire to address it through the more focused standpoint of the digital management and preservation of data and documents, without foregoing a broader reflection, concerning both historical and future documents and data in danger whether physical or natively digital.

    Image Deluge and Globalization

    The fields of visual studies, cultural history, and art history have encountered considerable challenges in addressing the plurality of images. These disciplines typically favor a singular outlook on images, neglecting the sheer deluge of visual representations that characterize the modern media landscape. Nevertheless, the constant flood of images has been part of our daily lives since the introduction of mass reproduction techniques, evolving alongside the gradual development of engraving, illustrated print, advertisement, cinema, television, video games, and now digital media. Observers of these consecutive stages of mass visual communication and consumption have consistently linked this phenomenon with the broader concept of globalization, often raising concerns about cultural homogenization, and loss of identity. This conference aims to provide a comprehensive exploration of image globalization, representing the wide range of subjects and methodologies used in the domain.

    “The comicization of academic knowledge”: the sequential and invisible artification of science?

    Little is known about these new scientific and educational trends. Given this situation, the aim of this panel is threefold. Firstly, it will examine the pedagogical uses of comics for transfering knowledge in schools and universities: to what extent are these comics used? By what types of teachers and for what types of teaching? To what extent are educational issues taken into account by comics authors, publishers and other players in the comics world? Secondly, we will be looking at the production of comics based on academic work: is this a trend that can be found at a more global level or is it merely limited to a handful of countries (France, Belgium, the United States, Italy…)?

    Book Erased: Print Word Censorship and US National Identity

    RSAJournal no.35

    From canonical masterpieces to the latest bestseller, the history of US literature is punctuated with books that have been banned from classrooms, libraries, and bookshops because they are considered harmful or inappropriate by a reactionary minority. By exposing the most profound fears of the US hegemonic powers and the way these have evolved or persisted, unchanged, over time, banned books mirror, and therefore provide insights into, other politically motivated acts of censorship throughout US history. This special issue of “RSAJournal” invites contributions that examine the ongoing nationwide “Ed Scare” in US public education in the context and as part of a wider, conservative political agenda aimed at maintaining the status quo by restricting and policing (among other things) the promotion and exercise of critical thinking, especially among young people.

    The relevance and rôle of digitalization technologies in the documentation, conservation and diagnosis of cultural property

    The conference raises problem inherent in-built heritage, which is its deterioration over time. Throughout its existence, built cultural heritage is exposed to numerous external threats (destruction, alteration, vandalism, etc.) and internal threats (wear and tear, deterioration, unhealthy conditions, etc.). This invaluable, non-renewable resource needs to be carefully documented and archived. What is the relevance and role of digitisation technologies in these practices? What technological tools do people have at their disposal to access built cultural heritage? What techniques are already being used for this purpose?

    Legal Issues in Textual Scholarship

    Through the practice of editing culturally and historically relevant documents, textual scholars are regularly faced with legal restrictions to their scholarly endeavours – including both copyright and non-copyright restrictions such as the privacy and moral rights of authors. In practice, these added difficulties and legal uncertainties cause funding agencies, libraries, and archives to prioritise the digitisation and publication of less legally problematic materials – which threatens to cause a bias in our output as a research field. In an effort to move forward as a research community, the European Society for Textual Scholarship (ESTS) is organising an online symposium on Legal Issues in Textual Scholarship to address these obstacles, and reflect on the legal restrictions that may affect textual scholarship in the analog and digital paradigms.
