Call For Papers


We invite submissions to the conference “What Is Labor in the Digital Age”: International Conference on Digital Labor (ICDL). The conference, organized by the School of Communication of East China Normal University (ECNU) in conjunction with the Chinese Association for History of Journalism and Mass Communication (CAHJMC), will take place on October 25, 26, and 27 at ECNU in Shanghai, China.

Scholars have noted that oftentimes digital labor goes unrecognized and unrewarded, but what is digital labor anyway? The coming of the digital age has dramatically changed capitalist modes of production and the way how labor works. Does digital labor indicate that the demarcated and fixed lines between work and paly, and between production and consumption are blurred, collapsed, and overlapped? In the news industry, what is the impact of digital technologies on the labor force? What can be learned about digital labor from China's experience? While the conference is hosted by the communication school, we would like to invite scholars from varied disciplines including but not limited to communication, economy, sociology, politics, history, anthropology, philosophy and practitioners from media and IT industries. Submissions should contribute to ongoing conversations about digital labor in empirical, theoretical or methodological ways. Aspects of digital labor to be addressed may be related to the following, among others: ● Definition ● Social media ● News industry ● history ●Platform-based activities ● Digital and platform economies ● Imperialism, neocolonialism and postcolonialism ● Regulation and public policies ● Political economy of communication● Postmodernism ●Fans ● Gender, race, ethnicity, and identity. We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai in October.
