TOWARDS DIGITALISM

 

With the spread of COVID,  the terms such as  “digitality”, “digitalism” , “digital culture”, “digital  philosophy”, “transhumanism”,  and “great reset” have started to be used  in our lives. Digitalism, the condition of being locked  down in our homes and living in a digital world,  has had reverberations in all walks of life particularly in arts, education and literature. The purpose of this volume is to touch upon the echoing of digitalism in arts, literature and education. Hence,  the topics to be covered  include these  terms,  exploring them from  various viewpoints, including sociological and philosophical aspects, and attempt to pinpoint them in a cultural and artistic context.

Themes addressed may include, but are not limited to:

•    Literary representations of transhumanism

•    Graphic narratives of cyborgs

•    digitality in films, web series, television, popular culture

•    Digital philosophy

•    Enhanced bodies and spacial politics

•   Challenges in virtual  education

 

Those who wish to contribute to the volume/volumes are kindly asked  to send their proposals of 400-500 words  to Dr. Feryal Cubukcu, cubukcu.feryal@gmail.com by  January 30. The full texts will be due by April 30, 2021.
