We are pleased to informe the online publication of the second issue of the International Journal on Stereo and Immersive Media (IJSIM).
This new issue brings two invited papers by the photography and sound researchers Nuno Borges de Araújo and Luís Cláudio Ribeiro(CICANT’s researcher), and four peer-reviewed regular papers by Paolo Parmeggiani, Thaís Amorim Aragão, Sandra Camacho and Maria Isabela Mendonça.
The Universidade Lusófona and the Fine Arts Society (Lisbon, Portugal) will be hosting the 3rd edition of the International Conference on Stereo & Immersive Media during 28-30 June, 2018.
This will be an inspiring and stimulating conference that will include keynote sessions by photography experts with 3D projections, 3D experimental cinema, a Dag studio, guided tours to a stereo photography historical exhibition and to a mechanical music museum, and an exhibition of contemporary stereo and immersive projects!
CICANT’s principal investigator, Maria Claúdia Álvares, just published an article in the Feminist Media Studies journal entitled: “Online staging of femininity: disciplining through public exposure in Brazilian social media”. Claudia’s paper analyses the architecture of online environments as “facilitating both the performance and the staging, within a Brazilian context, of a sexualised femininity that is stereotypically reductive to hegemonic definitions of body image and bodily practices.”
This publication revived Claudia’s interest on Gender Studies highly related to a perspective that equates misogyny to hate speeches that are highly increased by the networks, and social media-saturated environments and interactions we are all confronted with.
