Dear all,

I'm passing along this cfp for Visible Evidence XVII (August 2010)

*Spreadable Media, Social Media and the Viral/Virtual Witness *

This panel invites explorations of how spreadable media, social media, and
viral/virtual witnessing both continue traditional documentary debates and
open up new challenges in the areas of theories, aesthetic forms, open space
formations, ethics and human rights. New circulatory networks of media, new
participants in documentation and documentary and ubiquitous tools for
film-making are impacting on the possibilities for creating human rights
action through media, on our understanding of the generation and reach of
testimonial story and visual evidence, and on the established traditions of
documentary. Where do issues of circulation, aggregation and remix intersect
with human rights values, documentary tradition and real-life social change?
What is at stake in the new mutating economies of representing and
circulating other peoplesí suffering and our own? What new conceptual models
of advocacy media do these new media ecologies of networks and circulatory
systems necessitate? What is at play in the transition from curated space to
viral space? And what are the implications of circulation rather than fixed
exhibition? What place does aggregated user-generated content occupy in a
landscape of advocacy media? And what new palettes for advocacy media are
being invented, developed, imagined and mobilized in the current new media
ecology? What ethical issues are emerging in this new sphere?

Please send panel proposal to Sam Gregory (sam_at_witness.org) and Patty
Zimmermann (patty_at_ithaca.edu) *by March 12.*
