> Dear colleague,
> Apologies for the somewhat impersonal nature of this email.
> You'll be aware of my work on the concept of produsage over the past
> few years, chiefly in the book Blogs, Wikipedia, Second Life and
> Beyond: From Production to Produsage (New York: Peter Lang, 2008).
> I am writing to you now to let you know about the CFP for a special
> issue of the journal New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia on this
> topic, which my colleague Jan Schmidt (from the Hans-Bredow-Institut,
> Hamburg) and I have been invited to edit. We would be delighted if you
> could pass the CFP below on to any of your colleagues who may be
> interested in contributing, and/or if you were able to contribute an
> article yourself.
> The full CFP is below - and of course we'd be happy to respond to any
> queries you might have. Many thanks in advance !
> Exploring Produsage
> A Special Issue of New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia
> Call for papers
> The concept of produsage points to the shift away from conventional
> producer/consumer relationships, and highlights the more fluid roles
> of users and contributors within social media environments.
> Participants in open source projects, in Wikipedia, in YouTube and
> Second Life are no longer merely consuming or using preproduced
> material, but neither are they at all times acting as fully
> self-determined producers of fully formed new works; rather, they
> occupy a hybrid position as produsers of content.
> Produsage processes are now evident across a wide range of activities
> - mainly online, but increasingly also extending to the offline world
> - from citizen journalism and communal knowledge management through to
> collaborative artistic activities, from learner-led education models
> to citizen engagement in political processes. As such models establish
> themselves, what does an examination through the lens of the produsage
> framework reveal about their internal operations? How do they affect
> the existing institutional, industrial, social, and cultural
> environments within which they operate? How may they be guarded
> against cooptation and exploitation by corporate interests? What
> possible futures do they foreshadow?
> Potential contributions to this special issue could include, but are
> not limited to, areas such as:
> * Conceptualising produsage: theoretical frameworks for examining
> produsage activities, practical examples of produsage projects, ...
> * Historical and comparative perspectives: produsage and other forms
> of collaborative and commons-based work, precedents of produsage, ...
> * Technologies and practices of produsage: collaborative dynamics of
> leading produsage spaces, impact of the technological foundations of
> produsage, ...
> * Empirical perspectives on produsage: case studies of produsage and
> its effects, ethnographic research into produsage communities, ...
> * Methodology: research approaches to the study of produsage, tracking
> and evaluating produser activitities, ...
> * Critical perspectives: economic, legal, pedagogic, sociological
> perspectives on produsage, ...
> For this special issue of NRHM, we invite contributions on these and
> other topics related to produsage. Full papers should be around 7,000
> words; shorter papers (around 3,000 words) for technical notes,
> industry perspectives or opinion pieces are also welcome. More
> detailed instructions for authors can be found online:
