Blog Entry Internet Researchers' Conference 2018 (IRC18): Offline - Call for Sessions
by P.P. Sneha published Sep 20, 2017 last modified Sep 21, 2017 10:42 AM — filed under: , , ,
Does being offline necessarily mean being disconnected? Beyond anxieties such as FOMO, being offline is also seen as disengagement from a certain milieu of the digital (read: capital), an impediment to the way life is organised by and around technologies in general. However, being offline is not the exception, as examples of internet shutdown and acts on online censorship illustrate the persistence and often alarming regularity of the offline even for the ‘connected’ sections of the population. The *offline* is the theme of the third Internet Researchers' Conference (IRC18). We invite teams of two or more members to submit sessions proposals by Sunday, October 22. The session selection process is described below. The Conference is expected to be held in Himachal Pradesh during February 22-24, 2018. The venue and dates will be confirmed soon.
