This week the 18th annual conference of the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) will be held at Tartu, Estonia. NPC's Elinor Carmi has organised a panel called 'Sonic Publics' together with Professor Aram Sinnreich (American University), where she will present her paper titled: "The hidden listeners: Regulating publics through media, from telephone operators to social media content moderators". In her talk Carmi is proposing a new theoretical approach to conduct research on media power by using listening rather than seeing/vision as a knowledge production practice that structures various types of power relations. This panel will also include: Aram Sinnreich, Nancy Baym, Andrea Alarcon, Lana Swartz, Larisa Mann, and Ian Dunham. Join the panel on Thursday 19th October at 9am.
Elinor will also participate in a 'fishbowl' titled 'Privacy beyond the individual', where she will talk about the discussions around the European Union ePrivacy Regulation on Friday 20th October at 9:00am. In this fishbowl she collaborates with Airi Lampinen, Ralf Patrick De Wolf, Tuukka Lehtiniemi and Sander Schwartz.
