Call for Papers: Special Issue of First Monday on “HIV/AIDS and Digital Media”
Call for Papers: Special Issue of First Monday on “HIV/AIDS and Digital Media”

Special eeditors: Marika Cifor and Cait McKinney

From the prominence of epidemiological “virus” and “bug” metaphors in describing computer networks at risk to contemporary understandings of health data in viral-load management and virality in social media, the histories of HIV and AIDS and the Internet have long been meaningfully and messily entangled. This special issue of First Monday uncovers and examines these linkages, both historical and contemporary, literal and figurative.

AIDS and the Internet grew up together. However, the linkages that inhere in their conjoined histories and presents have been neglected in scholarship. HIV circulated through social and sexual networks in the 1960s and 1970s, though it was not until 1981 that the U.S. medical community identified clusters of “homosexual men” diagnosed with previously rare opportunistic infections. A toxic mixture of paranoia and scientific ignorance about the retrovirus’ cause and means of infection created a widespread panic about AIDS in the United States. Politicians and the media amplified these characteristics, leading to widespread discrimination, stigma, violence, and inaction, and the rise of an ongoing and global pandemic. Over the same decades research funded by the U.S. federal government developed the earliest robust communication with computer networks and led to the development of interconnection between regional academic and military networks. The rise of hobbyist networks in the 1980s, followed by commercial networks in the 1990s supported pervasive commercialization and the incorporation of the Internet’s services and technologies into nearly every aspect of life. This special issue seeks to more deeply investigate the shared temporalities of emergence between AIDS and computer networks, following their entanglements into contemporary digital cultures.

Since the 1980s, AIDS activists have taken digital technologies into their own hands, building powerful, pleasurable, far-ranging, life-sustaining, and politically meaningful platforms, spaces, and networks. Simultaneously, such digital technologies and platforms produce, reproduce, and reify deadly AIDSphobia and spread misinformation, discrimination, and violence. Serostatus disclosure cultures in hookup and dating apps, or the development of biometric data-collection tools in global regions with limited network access are two examples. Now, well into the fourth decade of the epidemic and the popular Internet, the histories and genealogies of their conjoined development both constrain and generate who and what is recognized and remembered, what is and is not known about HIV as an illness, political crisis, and cultural formation, and what kinds of futures can be imagined and built for those most urgently affected.

We seek submissions from a broad array of disciplines and perspectives representing a diverse collection of topics and geographical positionings including, but not limited to:

● The role of computing in AIDS activism and social movement building online

● Bugs, viruses, and other HIV metaphors and analogies in technocultures

● AIDS art and digital tools for cultural production

● HIV+ online dating, serostatus disclosure, and social networking

● AIDS memory and memorialization practices on social media

● The relationship between network imaginaries and HIV/AIDS

● Gendered and racialized HIV stigma and AIDSphobic violence in digital spaces

● The implications of the AIDS epidemic for early internet histories and infrastructures,

especially outside the U.S. context

● Digital AIDS archives, histories, and curatorial practices

● Sharing HIV/AIDS information and conducting education using digital platforms

● HIV/AIDS data bodies, vulnerability, and models of individual responsibility

● The role of the Internet in the surveillance and criminalization of HIV-positive persons

First Monday is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal focused on internet studies. More information about First Monday is available at .

CFP: Debates in the Digital Humanities Pedagogy
CFP: Debates in Digital Humanities Pedagogy
Brian Croxall and Diane Jakacki, Editors
Deadline for 500-Word Abstracts: April 1, 2019

Part of the Debates in the Digital Humanities Series
A book series from the University of Minnesota Press
Matthew K. Gold and Lauren F. Klein, Series Editors

Over the last decade, Digital Humanities (DH) has reinvigorated discussions of pedagogy in the academy. Unconferences on DH pedagogy and blogs about teaching with digital methods in the humanities classroom have led to extensive discussions about approaches to teaching at annual disciplinary conferences. At the same time, conversations and debates about teaching digital humanities—whether to undergraduates, graduate students, or to the faculty themselves—have led to more and more people becoming involved in the field, each of them coming from different subjects bringing their own perspectives and praxes with them to the teaching of DH. We have arrived at a moment when institutions are formally integrating DH into the curriculum and granting degrees; we are creating minors, majors, and even graduate certificates in DH; all of this while many of us are still new to the experience of (teaching) DH. This calls for another round of discussion of DH pedagogy or a discussion of pedagogy in a new key.

The Monad.Reader
The Monad.Reader is a electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but somehow more enduring than a wiki-page. There have been a wide variety of articles: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.

The Scientific Paper Is Obsolete
"maniac in the middle"

"I spoke to a neuroscientist-turned-software-developer who contributed to Jupyter, who told me that the professor in charge of his former lab was originally an electrophysiologist—he actually measured neuronal activity with implanted electrodes. 'This kind of data is basically so costly, so expensive, and so good,' he said, that nobody would ever share it. 'You collect one batch of data and you can mine it for the rest of your career.'"

MEP receives NEH grant to build online resource exploring early cinema history – The Media Ecology Project at Dartmouth College
The Paper Print and Biograph Compendium will produce a collection of data on over 400 select films from the early silent cinema era that document the transition of visual culture from stage to screen. It will combine highly influential and rare works archived in the Paper Print collection of pre-1930 cinema at the Library of Congress with additional American Mutoscope and Biograph Company (Biograph) films preserved at the Library of Congress and the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, plus a digitized version of the Biograph Exhibitors Catalog from The Museum of Modern Art, in order to create a digital resource for film scholars around the world.

As primary sources of cinematic history, the Paper Print and Biograph films have received considerable attention. This new compendium will take an innovative approach to annotating the digitized films with diverse types of scholarly description, archival metadata, and machine-generated annotation to present online visitors with a variety of analytic lenses embedded in a single, simple interface. The Compendium will offer scholars a reliable home from which to compare disparate types of data, create linkages to fields outside film studies, and otherwise begin to produce new lines of scholarship about these essential films. Participating scholars will include film historian Paul Spehr, Dan Streible (NYU), and Jenny Oyallon-Koloski (U Illinois).

The Compendium will unite MEP’s existing Semantic Annotation Tool (SAT) with the popular scholarly publishing platform Scalar, produced by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture. It will provide scholars a simple way to relate their work to other transdisciplinary studies of early cinema and highlight emergent relationships between seemingly independent quantitative and qualitative data. Technology developed to create the Compendium will be made available to other researchers who can apply it to analyzing their own collections as well. The Scalar-compatible version of SAT will provide scholars with an accessible way to manage detailed annotations of embedded video in their human-readable publications while simultaneously making those annotations available as data that can feed machine learning systems, quantitative analysis, and semantic web consumers.
