Call for Papers: M/C 'transmit' Issue, and Other 2006 Issues

We've now finalised the M/C Journal issue line-up for 2006, and posted the first call for papers for the 'transmit' issue. I'll be editing 'collaborate' with my friend and colleague Donna Lee Brien at the University of New England in Armidale early in 2006 as well, and I think we've got a number of other interesting issue topics and editors planned for the rest of the year as well. Start writing your articles!

Call for Papers: 'transmit'
Edited by Hendrik Huijser and Brooke Collins-Gearing

In an increasingly globalised and networked world, to transmit is to exist. In a sense this has always been the case as transmitting is at the heart of human communication and works on many different levels, including information, knowledge, culture, language, and media. What has changed then is not so much the action of transmitting itself, but rather the speed of transmission, facilitated by increasingly sophisticated transmission tools and widening access to those tools. This in turn has major implications for the volume of transmissions and the ability or inability to process them. In this context of content overload and fierce competition for attention, to transmit effectively becomes vital, whether on a professional, personal, community or global level.

This issue of M/C Journal invites reflections on 'transmit' from all potential angles relating to media and culture, including its potential and its limitations. This could include analyses of the tools of transmission, the content of transmission, including the transfer of information, knowledge, culture, language and all forms and genres of media, or a creative combination thereof.
