Promotion of Law incubators in FP7 Call 10 Objective ICT-2013.11.5

Sub-objective "c" aims at developing bridges between ICT SME, start ups, young entrepreneurs, and law students through the setting up of "law incubators". A "law incubator" functions as a pro-bono legal clinic where law students are challenged to give legal advice (under the supervision of their Professors) to companies and start-ups having to deal with the complexity of legal issues related to information and communication technologies. The law incubators are by no means substituting the legal expertise of a dedicated legal consultancy made by professional lawyers. They rather aim at building the ecosystem for potential and emerging European tech companies by: • providing tech start-ups with legal support to start them off as viable and job-creating businesses; • providing practical training to the next generation of lawyers to address the broad and evolving needs of tech ventures. The applying consortia are ideally composed by a group of Universities in Europe plus some entities with direct access to start-ups, tech entrepreneurs, spin-offs of universities and research centres, European funded R&D projects, etc. (this list being neither exhaustive nor mandatory).

CFP: Equality Equals…? Conference

Equality Equals…? Conference

April 5th-6th 2013

 Sponsored by the Department of Communication Studies Graduate Student Association at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

 Keynote Speaker: Dr. Dana Cloud, The University of Texas at Austin, Department of Communication Studies

 Call for Participants:


The conception of "equality" is often understood to be a self-evident good. But is it? The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Department of Communication Studies' conference, Equality Equals…?, seeks to explore the complex relations of equality. In the current contexts of "Occupy Everywhere," neoliberal universities and education, the public, the stage, the family, and others, "equality" is yet again emerging in complicated ways that include questions of social, political, economic, and cultural import. In some cases, equality is celebrated; in other cases, it is an undesirable goal. For some, equality seems impossible, thus putting under question the utility of equality as a moral/ethical conviction.

As an interdisciplinary attempt to speak to the complex, transforming, and often contradictory conceptions of equality, this conference is concerned with the multiple perspectives that may exist on equality. How, for example, might class, sexuality, gender, race, age, space, technology, politics, personal and professional relations, performances, and more (re)make and be (re)made by, and in relation to, conceptions of equality? How do notions of equality constrain and/or enable various perspectives and possibilities?

We invite proposals that address multiple conceptions of equality as taken up in disciplines such as (but not limited to): Communication Studies, African and African American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Architecture and Design, City Planning, Criminology, Cultural Studies, Economics, English and Comparative Literature, Ethnic Studies, Geography, Health and Behavioural Sciences, History, Internet Studies, Journalism, Legal Studies, Media and Visual Arts, Politics and International Relations, Public Policy, Religious Studies, Social Work, Sociology, Theatre and Performance Studies, Tourism Studies, Transportation Research, Urban Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies.

We invite proposals that speak to multiple questions of equality, such as:

  • In what ways does equality transform when addressed along lines of race, class, gender, age, and/or sexuality?
  • How is equality memorialized? What are the complications associated with equality and time?
  • How and why does equality become attached to and organized by space? ("Safe Zones," Ground Zero Mosque controversy, etc.)
  • What are the interconnections between assumptions of equality, freedom, and mobility?
  • How is equality embodied or disembodied?
  • In what ways does equality become ir/relevant in the face of economic or environmental disaster?
  • How is equality organized? Who organizes equality?
  • What is the interplay between equality and difference?
  • As a central ideal of modernity, how is equality understood as both/either a moral and/or an economic end?
    • If equality is a moral concept, how/when do we understand equality as an individual issue more than a collective issue (and vice versa)? What does this indicate about (neo)classical notions of economic liberalism?
    • If equality is an economic concept (class), how do we understand equality as an element of democracy? What is the role of the state (as a representative entity) in resolving the contradictions between equality and capitalism in general?
  • In what ways do knowledge, information, and equality become articulated or disarticulated?
  • How might we imagine a pedagogy of equality? A pedagogy for equality? If we could imagine those, would they even be desirable goals?
  • What is the role of the family, the community, and the state in resolving issues of equality in our personal and professional lives?
 Interested presenters should submit a 250-word proposal to equalityconference@gmail.com by December 10th, 2012. Please put "Equality Equals" in the email subject line, and include your name, department, and university in the email. Accepted presenters will be contacted early 2013.

CFP: Music and Labour

MUSIC AND LABOUR

IASPM-Canada 30th Annual Conference

McMaster University

23-26 May 2013

 

From the earliest days of academic popular music studies, concepts of labour have been of paramount importance both for their intellectual richness and for their ability to link academic practices with broader patterns of social and political action. More recently, the increasing pace of globalization and digital networking have profoundly altered the nature of musical labour, making it crucial to think about how existing ideas may continue to be of use, how they may need to be changed, and what new concepts might be needed to address similar questions in these new contexts.  In addition, the recent global economic downturn gives issues concerning music and labour a new urgency, impacting both production and consumption in myriad ways.

 

The site of this conference, at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, resonates both with the history of labour in Canada and with the contemporary transformation and reinvention of those urban spaces which originally developed around heavy industry. These broad social histories, along with the gritty, steeltown reputation of "the Hammer" (as it is sometimes called by locals), intersect with several vibrant strands of popular music history and culture in Hamilton: the blues, punk, and indie scenes that have developed in the city, institutions like Grant Avenue Studios (started by Daniel and Bob Lanois and Bob Doige) and Sonic Unyon Records, the routes traveled by touring musicians, and recent arts-centred efforts of urban renewal.

 

While proposals on any topic relating to popular music are welcome, the conference organizers especially invite proposals for individual presentations, panels, workshops or performances on topics related to the theme of the conference, including, but not limited to, the following:

 

      Popular music's place in the politics and policy of the labour movement

      The role of the popular music industry in shaping musical labor

      How understandings of popular music making as work are affected by ideologies of race, gender, class, sexuality, age, (dis)ability, etc.

      The impact of digitization and networking on the nature of popular music and musical labour

      Copyright, commodification, and musical labor

      Popular music in the workplace

      The labour of popular musical scholarship

      Musicking as embodied labour, including reproductive labour

      Theoretical and activist perspectives on the changing nature of musical labour and its social, economic, and political situation

  

Proposals for single papers, workshops, performances or other forms of presentation may be submitted. Abstracts for individual papers, roundtables, and workshops should be no longer than 300 words; proposals for panels should include an abstract for the panel as a whole (300 words max.) as well as an individual abstract for each paper proposed for the panel (300 words max.). It is possible that the program committee may accept a panel but reject an individual paper on that panel.

 

The local organizers will be applying to SSHRC for conference funding. SSHRC requires the following information from each presenter. Please submit this, along with your 300-word abstract, in a single Word document (use your last name as the document's file name--e.g., "Hendrix.doc" NOT "IASPM abstract.doc"). Please do not submit your proposal as a PDF file.

CFP ‘Exploring modern South Asian history with visual research methods: theories and practices’ Conference

Call for papers: 'Exploring modern South Asian history with visual research methods: theories and practices' Conference, University of Cambridge, 15 – 16 March 2013.    Call for papers deadline: 31 December 2012    Conveners: Dr Annamaria Motrescu (University of Cambridge)
 and Prof. Marcus Banks (University of Oxford).     The Centre of South Asian Studies, University of Cambridge, and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CRASSH) are organising the first international conference on 'Exploring modern South Asian history with visual research methods: theories and practices'.     This conference aims to investigate the ways in which visual research methods support the development of new perspectives on modern South Asian history. It will explore the strategies employed by historians and scholars of visual (digital) culture, film and visual anthropology when incorporating representations of South Asian history within the framework of traditional historical scholarship. Also, the role of interdisciplinary research in terms of producing, distributing, re-interpreting and repatriating visual records of South Asian history will be assessed throughout several roundtable discussions.     The conference will create for the first time the opportunity to strengthen the network of historians, anthropologists, visual and digital scholars and artists concerned with the re-examination of modern South Asian history across visual records. It proposes four themes of investigation that will support new scholarly developments:     ▪       digital humanities and issues of South Asian history, visuality and ethnographic enquiry  ▪       theories of visual anthropology relevant to historiographical research of South Asia  ▪       examples of historical scholarship strengthened by visual research methodologies  ▪       historical and anthropological practices replicated in visual artwork inspired by South Asian history     Keynote addresses will be delivered by Professor Marcus Banks (University of Oxford) and by Professor Christopher Pinney (University College London). Papers, panels and roundtable discussions led by international scholars such as Professor Christiane Brosius  (Heidelberg University), Denis Vidal (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris), Dr Clare Harris (University of Oxford) and Professor Ravi Vasudevan (CSDS, Delhi) will explore new perspectives on visual research methods and modern South Asian history. Also, there will be three exclusive presentations by the renowned visual artists Pushpamala N., Rajkamal Kahlon and Ayesha Abraham. The opening address will be delivered by Professor Sir C.A. Bayly, Director of the Centre of South Asian Studies.    Location: CRASSH, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DT.     The conference organisers invite proposals for papers or presentations of 20 minutes in length. Abstracts of 300 words and an author biography (including institutional affiliation) should be submitted via email to exploringsouthasianhistorycsas@gmail.com by 31 December 2012.
