Automation by Design: <https://cse.umn.edu/cbi/Automation-by-Design>Politics,
Culture, and Landscape in an Age of Machines That Learn
<https://cse.umn.edu/cbi/Automation-by-Design>CFP--Deadline Friday, April
29th <https://cse.umn.edu/cbi/Automation-by-Design>

*Automation by Design <https://cse.umn.edu/cbi/Automation-by-Design>* is a
global, interdisciplinary, virtual CBI symposium on the politics and
culture of digital automation. We welcome papers in a broad range of fields
across the humanities and social sciences. These include history, STS,
sociology, anthropology, media studies, policy, legal studies, geography,
communication, rhetoric, information studies, and philosophy.

The platformization of society, fueled by automation and machine learning,
impacts IT users in deleterious, discriminatory, democracy-threatening, and
at times deadly, ways that intersect and compound. This symposium seeks
papers that explore how automation—from its algorithmic and architectural
design to its structuring, materiality, maintenance, and use—has developed
jointly with social politics. We are especially interested in papers that
address education, law, capitalism, labor, science, medicine, leisure,
privacy/security, surveillance, the body, and the environment.
