The Web that Was: Archives, Traces, Reflections

A three-day conference, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, June
19-21, 2019. The third biennial RESAW (Research Infrastructure for the
Study of Archived Web Materials) conference. Organized by the University of
Amsterdam.



*** Keynote speakers ***

Megan Ankerson, University of Michigan

Florian Cramer, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences

Olia Lialina, Merz Akademie

Fred Turner, Stanford University



*** Special event ***

The conference will host a lecture-performance by Geert Lovink (Institute
of Network Cultures, Hogeschool van Amsterdam) and guests on the history
and preservation of Amsterdam’s early internet culture.



*** Call for contributions ***

As the first generation of web users goes grey, it's clear that the
internet they remember is no longer around. The early web is now simply
another object of nostalgia. Tech anniversaries are a dime a dozen, while
once cool digital aesthetics have made several ironic comebacks. All of
this reinforces a sense that we’ve left behind a digital history that was
as clunky and slow as it was idealistic and naïve.



How can we rethink this relationship to the web's past and the past web?
This question is crucial today as the open web continues to lose ground to
platforms and apps. How can this history be reconstructed and re-evaluated,
and how are web archives and web histories impacted by technological
change? What do traditional problems of preservation and historiography
look like at scale? And what stories capture the diverse transformations
and continuities that mark nearly 30 years of web history?



There is of course no single web history, materially or conceptually
speaking. There is instead a politics of archives, technologies and
discourses that needs to be uncovered. How can we expand our view of web
history beyond Silicon Valley and celebrated cases? And how can we reveal
the technological, social and economic contexts that have shaped not just
the present web, but how we access its past? What role do archives play in
uncovering the histories of the web, platforms and apps, as well as their
production and usage contexts?



This conference aims to bring together scholars, archivists and artists
interested in preserving, portraying and otherwise engaging with the web
that was. In addition to paper submissions, we invite proposals for
audiovisual installations, posters, software demos, or other media that
connects to the conference themes.



Submissions in the form of an abstract may relate to, but are not limited
by, the following topics:



* Web and internet histories

* Historicizing the web and digital culture

* Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and critiquing periodizations

* Past futures and paths not taken

* Platformization and the changing structure of the web

* Social imaginaries of the early web

* Archives and access

* Research methods for studying the archived web

* Methods for platform and app histories

* Ethics of (studying) web archives

* Technicity of web archives

* Software histories

* Archived audiences and histories of internet use

* Identity, intersectionality and web history

* Digital activism and web history

* Histories of net criticism

* Media industries and their online histories

* Web histories elsewhere: forgotten and marginalized web cultures

* Realtime, time travel and other web temporalities

* Future histories and the archive of tomorrow



*** Submissions ***

Submissions are welcomed from all fields and disciplines, and we would
particularly encourage postgraduate students and early career researchers
to participate.



* Individual papers of 20 minutes length (750-word abstract and a short
author bio of 100-150 words).

* Panel sessions consisting of three individual papers, introduced by a
chair (750-word abstract for each paper, a brief description of 300 words
of the purpose of the panel, and a short author bio of 100-150 words for
each speaker).

* Posters, demonstrations, and audio/video/interactive installations (short
abstract of no more than 300 words, a list of A/V or other requirements,
and a short author bio of 100-150 words)

* Workshops (a 500-word rationale for the workshop, including discussion of
why the topic lends itself to a workshop format, and a short author bio of
100-150 words for the workshop organiser(s)).



Deadline for submission is 19 October 2018.
