CALL FOR PAPERS-Histories of the Surveillance Society: Transnational Contexts

Wed, 2016-09-14 17:08 -- manager

Histories of the Surveillance Society: Transnational Contexts
Edited by Robert Heynen and Emily van der Meulen

A growing number of scholars have argued that today we live in a ‘surveillance society,’ suggesting that, especially with the spread of digital technologies, surveillance and data collection have become globally ubiquitous, driving everything from state security practices to consumer culture. This is the context for the emergence of the field of surveillance studies, which has expanded enormously over the past twenty years. But how new is this surveillance society? What are its dimensions, and how have they come into being internationally?

A small but expanding body of scholarship has traced important histories, showing that many surveillance practices are not as novel as sometimes thought. Indeed, important works have been published on histories of medical surveillance (Cartwright 1995; Fairchild et al. 2007), surveillant criminology (Sekula 1986; Cole 2001; Finn 2009), and the emergence of practices of identification (Torpey 2000; Caplan & Torpey 2001; Groebner 2007; Bennett & Lyon 2008; About et al. 2013). We have also seen an opening up of perspectives from outside the European and Anglo-American worlds (Anderson 2004; McCoy 2009; Breckenridge 2014), and from Indigenous perspectives (K. Smith 2009).

This collection seeks to further broaden and deepen these emerging historical perspectives, and to break new ground in thinking about how histories of surveillance have shaped modern social systems over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. The approach of the volume is global, incorporating transnational perspectives and work from the global South. How has surveillance shaped the emergence of modern mass industrial societies, capitalism, and colonialism? What role have new media and information technologies played in this process? In what ways are various people and populations differentially targeted by and implicated in these surveillance practices?

We encourage submissions from scholars working in surveillance studies, but also those outside the field seeking to rethink their work through the lens of surveillance. We particularly encourage submissions that draw on critical literature engaging with gender, race and racialization, labour, disability, sexuality, and class.

Chapter topics may include, but are not limited to:

- The historical role of new media and information technologies (e.g., photography, film, databases) in the shaping of various global systems of surveillance

- The role of both state and non-state forms of surveillance in histories of intra- or transnational migration (e.g., identification systems, border control mechanisms, status/non-status peoples)  

- Histories of medical surveillance, including of specific diseases and blood borne viruses (e.g., tuberculosis, sexually transmitted infections), and the differential targeting of various bodies

- The constitution of disability through regimes of surveillance, including eugenic identifications, interventions, and regulations

- Cultural representations and engagements with surveillance, including but not limited to literature, film, visual art, and popular culture

- Capitalism, labour, and surveillance, in particular in relation to accumulation by dispossession, poor and vagrancy laws, workers and labour processes, and Marx’s and Marxist approaches

- State surveillance of political movements and dissidents (e.g., Red scares and anti-Communism, COINTELPRO, suppression of national liberation struggles, dirty wars in Latin America and elsewhere, dissent in the Eastern Bloc, surveillance in authoritarian states)

- The production of gendered subjects and the elaboration of gender binaries, including the policing and surveillance of queer, trans, and gender non-conforming bodies

- Histories of criminology, including the development of policing, growth of penal systems, and the extension of biometric practices (e.g., crainometry, physiognomy, fingerprinting)

- Surveillant strategies of colonial governance and the elaboration of racialized hierarchies, including colonial policing and military, labour exploitation, and settler practices  

- Architecture, urban planning, and surveillance, in particular how these are shaped by the specific power dynamics at play in different global locations and historical periods

- Systems of identity and registration (e.g., the Koseki system in Japan, pass laws in South Africa and elsewhere, criminal registries of specific populations)

- Resistance, resilience, and responses to the various practices of surveillance outlined above, including how forms of counter-surveillance or sousveillance have been used in emancipatory social and political projects, and the role of surveillance in radical and revolutionary movements
 

Abstract submission:

Interested contributors should send a 300-400 word abstract and 100 word bio by Nov. 10th, 2016  tHistories.Surveillance@gmail.com. Notification of abstract acceptance will be Dec. 15th, 2016. And completed 6,000-8,000 word chapter drafts will be due by July 1st, 2017.

CALL FOR PAPERS Book Title: Socio-Legal Imaginations: A Field in Development

Thu, 2016-09-08 14:48 -- manager
CALL FOR PAPERS
 
Book Title: Socio-Legal Imaginations: A Field in Development
 
This edited book collection critically explores theoretical developments in the emerging field of socio-legal
studies. In contrast to doctrinal legal scholarship, which primarily focuses on law as a system of rules and
regulations, the field of socio-legal studies complicates the role of law by conceptualizing its
discourse/knowledges, codes, and techniques as playing an important role in mutually constituting relations of
power, subjectivity, and identity.
 
By drawing specifically on governmentally, post-structuralism, feminism, critical race and post-colonial theory,
queer theory and critical sexuality studies, legal pluralism and/or legal consciousness, contributing chapters will
critically engage with one or more of the following questions:
- How does law’s power mutually constitute classed, gendered, sexed, racialized and ethicized bodies in
historically specific ways?
- How does law’s power (re)-produce and/or maintain dominant social structures, such as colonialism,
patriarchy, heteronormative hegemony, or capitalism?
- How does the law inhibit or facilitate dissent, social mobilization and resistance?
Topics may include, but are not limited to: Citizenship, Borders and Migration; Crime, Security, and
Governance; Critical Disability Studies; Globalization and Human Rights; Global Justice and Social
Transformation; Law, Culture and Humanities: LGBTQ issues; Policing, Surveillance, and Technology;
Indigenous Sovereignty
 
BOOK OBJECTIVE: This book aims to challenge the prevailing misperceptions that socio-legal studies is
another way to refer to the study of doctrinal law or that it exists only as a sub-discipline within sociology. By
exploring the original work of current and emerging scholars in socio-legal studies, this book will reveal how
scholars are establishing the discipline as a distinct and independent field of critical scholarship through the
development of social-legal theory and its application to contemporary social issues.
 
PUBLISHER: The book will be published with a reputable academic publishing house. We are currently
negotiating with the University of British Columbia press. The publication is expected to be released in 2018.
 
DEADLINES: Abstract submission deadline: September 23rd, 2016
Proposal acceptance notification: November 25th, 2016
Full chapter submission: June 16th, 2017
 
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:
> Title of contribution
> Abstract (350 words) and Keywords
> Brief Bio of Author & Contact Information (Name, institution, and mailing address)
*Final chapters are to be a maximum of 8000 words (not including bibliography/appendices). Contributions must

BANQUET

Enmax Conservatory, Calgary Zoo

Drinks 6 pm, Dinner 7 / “5  à 7” 18 h 00, Dîner 19 h 00

Guest speaker: John P.S. McLaren / Conférencier: John P.S. McLaren. "Empires, Colonies and Legacies: Widening the Lens of Law and History"

 

Getting there by LRT:

The easiest way to get to the zoo is by LRT (aka “CTrain”). Calgary has two LRT lines, which overlap and ultimately cross on 7th Avenue SW, downtown. You board the north-south LRT line either at the University Station or at Banff Trail (if you’re leaving from Motel Village) and travel south (toward Somerset-Bridlewood) until you cross the Bow River and enter the fare-free zone on 7th Avenue. Get out at one of the platforms on 7th Avenue and wait for the next east-west train bound for Saddletowne. Get off at the zoo station and follow the signs to the main entrance.

Of course, if you are starting from downtown, simply take an eastbound train toward Saddletowne, get off at the zoo and follow the signs.

Tickets are bought at machines on or near the station platforms. Quite likely no one will ask you for a ticket, but inspectors do pass through the trains from time to time.

Returning:

Head west on a train bound for 69th Street. Unless you’re staying downtown, transfer on 7th Avenue to a train bound for Tuscany and get off at Banff Trail or the University station. 

This is the CTrain map: http://www.calgarytransit.com/sites/default/files/content/PDF/ct-line-ma....

 

Driving:

If you are driving, go south on University Drive or Crowchild Trail to Memorial Drive. Take Memorial Drive east to the Zoo exit, St. George’s Drive / 12th St. NE. Follow the signs to the parking lots, which are north of Memorial Drive. The Zoo entrance is at the south end of the parking lot.

It is a pleasant but not inconsiderable walk (allow ten or fifteen minutes) from the main gates of the Zoo to the dinner venue. If you have mobility issues and will need to park close to the venue, please contact Lyndsay Campbell (lyndsay@iii.ca), and she will arrange parking at a smaller lot much closer to the dinner venue. The road across St. George’s Island, where the Zoo is, is closed for construction of a berm (to protect the Zoo against future floods), so you will need separate instructions to this lot.

 

At the Zoo:

Your dinner ticket includes the price of admission to the Zoo. If you arrive early, you are welcome to stroll around and enjoy the animals. Since the grounds close at 6 pm, security will begin herding you toward the Enmax Conservatory at that time, where you will be able to find wine. If you arrive after 6 pm, announce your destination to the people at the gate, and they will send you on your way. If you arrive after 7:15, press the button on the intercom to the left of the main gate to reach security, and they will send help. But don’t be that late, because we will have eaten a good portion of the food.

You walk south from the main gates toward the river and the island. (Don’t go into the North American exhibit or the Prehistoric Park.) You cross a bridge and head for more or less the centre of the island. You may possibly pass gorillas or flamingoes. The attached map is somewhat peculiar, in that you must imagine that the two dock-like things are actually connected into a bridge. The Enmax Conservatory is number 5 on the map, and the pavillion part of it, where our event will be, is circled.

 

Pour vous rendre par le SLR :

Le moyen le plus facile pour se rendre au zoo est en utilisant le SLR (train léger, “CTrain”). Le SLR de Calgary a deux lignes, qui se chevauchent et, en fin de compte, se croisent à la 7th Avenue SW, au centre-ville. Vous devez prendre la ligne nord-sud, soit à la Université Station ou à Banff Trail (si vous quittez de Motel Village) et vous diriger en direction sud (vers Somerset-Bridlewood) jusqu'à ce que vous traversiez la rivière Bow (Bow River) et franchissiez la zone de transit sans frais à la 7th Avenue. Sortez à l'une des plates-formes de la 7th Avenue et attendez le prochain train est-ouest à destination de Saddletowne. Descendez à l'arrêt du zoo et suivez les panneaux vers l'entrée principale.

Évidemment, si vous partez du centre-ville, il suffit de prendre un train vers l'est en direction de Saddletowne, de descendre au zoo et de suivre les panneaux.

Vous pouvez vous procurer des billets aux machines situées sur les plates-formes, ou à proximité de celles-ci. Il est fort probable que personne ne vous demandera pour votre billet, mais les inspecteurs vérifient les trains de temps en temps.

Retour :

Dirigez-vous vers l'ouest sur un train à destination de 69th Street. Sauf si vous séjournez au centre-ville, veuillez effectuer un transfert à la 7th Avenue en prenant un train à destination de Tuscany et descendez à Banff Trail ou la University Station. 

Voici la carte du CTrain : http://www.calgarytransit.com/sites/default/files/content/PDF/ct-line-ma....

 

En voiture :

Si vous êtes en voiture, allez vers le sud sur la University Drive ou Crowchild Trail jusqu'à Memorial Drive. Veuillez prendre Memorial Drive est jusqu'à la sortie du zoo, “St. George’s Drive / 12th St. NE.” Suivez les panneaux vers les stationnements, qui sont situés au nord de Memorial Drive. L'entrée du Zoo est à l'extrémité sud du stationnement.

La marche partant des portes principales du Zoo jusqu'au lieu du souper est agréable, mais considérable (veuillez allouer de dix à quinze minutes). Si vous avez des problèmes de mobilité et avez besoin d'un stationnement à proximité de l'endroit, veuillez communiquer avec Lyndsay Campbell (Lyndsay@iii.ca), et elle organisera votre stationnement dans un lieu plus petit et beaucoup plus près du lieu du repas. La route qui passe à travers la St. George's Island, où est situé le Zoo, est fermée en raison de la construction d'une berme (pour protéger le Zoo des inondations), donc vous devez prendre un itinéraire différent pour ce stationnement.

 

Au Zoo :

Votre billet pour le souper comprend le prix d'entrée au Zoo. Si vous arrivez tôt, sentez-vous à l'aise de vous promenez et d'aller voir les animaux. Puisque les lieux ferment à 18 h, le service de sécurité commencera à vous diriger vers l'Enmax Conservatory, où vous trouverez le vin. Si vous arrivez après 18 h, veuillez aviser les gens à la porte de votre destination et ils vous dirigeront dans la bonne direction. Si vous arrivez après 19 h 15, appuyez sur le bouton de l'interphone à gauche de la porte principale pour parler au service de sécurité, et ils enverront quelqu'un. Mais ne soyez pas en retard, car nous aurons mangé une bonne partie de la nourriture.

Vous devez marcher vers le sud à partir des portes principales vers la rivière et l'île. (N'allez pas vers la North American exhibit ni le Prehistoric Park.) Traversez le pont et dirigez-vous plus ou moins vers le centre de l'île. Il se peut que vous passiez devant des gorilles ou des flamants roses. La carte ci-jointe est quelque peu étrange, car vous devez imaginer que les deux choses qui ressemblent à un quai sont effectivement reliées à un pont. Sur la carte, l'Enmax Conservatory est identifié par le numéro 5, et son pavillon, où notre événement a lieu, est encerclé.
