This one-day symposium on digital violence seeks to theorize both the concrete forms of violence that proliferate and spread through our networked screens, and the complex processes that structure violence in a post-digital attention ecology.
What are the social and cultural logics that underpin everyday instances of violence? In what specific ways have these cultural understandings been shaped by technological processes of mediation? Similarly, there is a vital need for scholars to identify uses of media, which might expose, critique, or appropriate violence in its various forms. What critical or creative practices of archiving, excavation, and uncovering are needed to unearth and engage violence in a digital age?
