CFP – Machine Communication*
*communication +1* invites submissions for its upcoming issue, Machine
*Edited by David Gunkel and Zachary McDowell*
Within this issue we hope to explore the boundaries of communication outside of the human, that which is inevitably radically other – the machine. We seek articles that interrogate the implications and the various problematics that emerge around, within, and from the engagement with the machine. What does the machine have to say about our history, our present, or our future?
Whether the question of human-machine interaction, machine-machine interaction, or machines interacting with themselves, we hope to find and collect articles probing the boundaries of concern for machine communication.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
Algorithmic Culture – Influence of machines on human or other non-machine culture; Robotic Automation – Drones, Robots, or other automated systems that exist in the corporeal world and take part in a variety of tasks;
Artificial Intelligence – Either soft-AI and its effects or hard-AI and. its possible futures / implications. Other topics might include
Cybernetics, Bioinformatics, Knowledge Representation, or various applications of Software Theory.
Please submit short proposals of no more than 500 words by December 13th, 2015 to email@example.com.
Upon invitation, full text submissions will be due April 5th, 2013, with expected publication in September, 2016
*About the Journal*
The aim of *communication +1* is to promote new approaches to and open new horizons in the study of communication from an interdisciplinary perspective. We are particularly committed to promoting research that seeks to constitute new areas of inquiry and to explore new frontiers of theoretical activities linking the study of communication to both established and emerging research programs in the humanities, social sciences, and arts. Other than the commitment to rigorous scholarship,*communication +1* sets no specific agenda. Its primary objective is to create is a space for thoughtful experiments and for communicating these experiments.
*communication +1 *is an open access journal supported by University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries and the Department of Communication
