In this dissertation, I examine the social and communicative lives of deaf youth in Iquitos, Peru using a language socialization approach that combines ethnographic research with interactional analysis. I illustrate this approach using the data of three deaf boys, Luis, José, and Jeremy, whom I met while observing their regular education mainstream classroom in 2014. All three boys were similar in that they had no previous access to an established language. Their deafness precluded access to spoken Spanish, they had not received hearing assistive technology, and had not been exposed to Peruvian Sign Language.

 

Based on the existing literature, I began my research in Iquitos under the assumption that the deaf youth I would meet would be cut-off from the surrounding social world and would neither share a language with the individuals around them, nor have any language at all. Yet, through my ethnographic fieldwork, I found that these boys had remarkably rich social and communicative lives. They were integral members of their households, had friends whom they played with and had crushes on, were frequent customers at the family run shops in their neighborhoods, and attended school where they were busy doing the work of being students. The interactional analyses illustrate how the boys use their manual communication systems to navigate the distinct affordances provided by their home and school environments.

 

In this dissertation, I demonstrate how the language socialization paradigm provides an important advance to studying the communication of deaf individuals without access to an existing language. The language socialization approach sheds light on how these sign systems are co-created in interaction with a community of individuals and rely on a variety of communicative resources, including manual signs, vocalizations, eye gaze, body orientation, and the manipulation of objects. Additionally, this dissertation addresses the future possibilities for deaf youth growing up in Iquitos. I advocate for providing deaf youth with access to Peruvian Sign Language, as well as grassroots community efforts to address the numerous structural barriers that deaf individuals face as they move into adulthood in Iquitos.

Seminar: Challenges of the GDPR and data processing in the era of artificial intelligence

Although artificial intelligence (AI) and robots have been the subject of science fiction for some time, that fictional future is now a present reality: from SIRI to self-driving cars and home speakers, AI is progressing rapidly, and the interaction with human is increasing, especially in the digital environment. We are moving closer to a unified Internet of Things (IoT), and, inevitably, alongside the opportunities, there are a number of challenges arising in the sector, from the allocation of damage liability, to crucial issues arising in the field of data processing.

 

Lecturer is Lavinia Vizzoni (PhD in private law). The seminar will be held in English.

 

Sign up here - Deadline for registration is February 7.

 

Background
The recent entry to force of the EU Reg. 697/16, GDPR takes significant steps forward in the achievement of a unified protection of personal data in the European framework, but, at the same time, it raises a series of crucial challenges. The GDPR is inspired by some key principles which deserves to be identified, like accountability, data protection by default, data protection by design, and it imposes new obligations on the subjects in some way involved in the processing of data. The Regulation represents therefore a major innovation for both citizens and companies, requiring the adoption of new patterns in the light of compliance. A specific focus needs then to be addressed to Artificial Intelligence technologies, whose market and investments are more and more predicted to implement. The regulation of AI’s activities is at the forefront of legal studies, although the solutions offered by the GDPR do not always seem suitable to give efficient answers to the difficulties raised by automated devices.

 

Biography Lavinia Vizzoni
Lavinia Vizzoni holds a PhD in private law, and is a Postdoc Research Grant Holder at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. She is also an yearly Adjunct Professor of Private Law (summer course) at the same University. Her research focus on Bank Guarantees, Consumer Law, Data Protection and New Technologies. She is author of scientific publications on the main national legal journals and has given several lectures in national and international conferences. She is also a lawyer and works mainly as business counselor.

 

Target audience
SME owners-managers, Privacy officers, Project managers, Business development managers, Data protection officers, CEOs, IT and Compliance officers.

Seminar and workshop: How to engage with the influencer industry

Do you wish to learn more about Influencer Marketing and about the Influencer Industry? Then you shouldn’t miss this Transform to AAA event with the digital anthropologist Dr. Crystal Abidin.

Many young people are now vocationally pursuing celebrity on the internet as commercial, cross-platform, and highly relatable Influencers. Influencers are raking in millions of dollars, working with blue chip companies, establishing their own brands, and even effecting change in legal, economic, and social regulation in various societies. In fact, the communication formats of Influencers are so innovative that ailing legacy media formats are learning to brandjack their vernacular participatory cultures to appeal to young audiences. But how did they get here, and how can businesses meaningfully engage with the Influencer industry?

Drawing on traditional and digital anthropological research on internet celebrity since 2010 across the Asia Pacific and recent projects in Europe and the US, in this talk we will review a brief history of internet celebrities to understand how Influencers have emerged in the last decade. We will explore how attention and money are generated and circulated in the Influencer ecologies, and learn about the highly creative strategies encultured by Influencers to capture viewer attention in the increasingly saturated market.

Lecturer is Dr. Crystal Abidin, digital anthropologist and ethnographer of vernacular internet cultures. She researches young people’s relationships with internet celebrity, self-curation, and vulnerability. Crystal Abidin is listed on Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia (2018) and Pacific Standard 30 Top Thinkers Under 30 (2016).

The seminar will be held in English.

Seminar: What Swedish companies can learn from how entrepreneurs in East Asia use Instagram and Streaming Apps

Looking closely at online advertorials, personal endorsements, and knock-off material cultures as facilitated by young internet users, in this talk I present brief summaries on how young entrepreneurs in East Asia have been using Instagram and Streaming Apps for their businesses.


These include recently popular platforms such as Musical.ly/TikTok, Tudou, BeLive, and Bigo, that are widely used around Asia. We will learn about the different platform architectures that have enabled commercial activity, cultures of interpersonal exchange and self-branding among various subcultures, and the resultant implications on the brick-and-mortar shopping industry.


More importantly, we will review how some of these strategies can be applied in the Swedish context, and learn about some cultural norms that young internet users in Scandinavia value, based on pilot studies conducted in Denmark and Sweden.

Seminar: New technologies and the evolving conception of copyright protection

The purpose of this seminar is to explain the functioning of Copyright law in the technological environment determining also the possibility of recognizing new spaces for copyright protection for non-traditional works of authorship with respect to new technologies, such as 3D Printings, engineered genetic data and works generated by artificial intelligence.

This is a very relevant and topical subject at the moment and has multi-disciplinary appeal also in light of the current debate on the modernisation of EU copyright rules. The protection of new creative output is of great importance for the innovation-based knowledge society and it is a generally recognized priority for all advanced economies.

Since its conception, copyright law has been constantly evolving to keep up with technological advances it will continue to change. There is in fact a progressive expansion of copyrightable subject matter. Authors and creative people are indeed continually finding new ways of expressing themselves, being often difficult to foresee the forms that these new expressive methods will take.

---------------------

Target audience:

SME managements, Business development managers, Digital content editors, communication specialists, IP Officers, Legal Officers, creative people and companies involved in the creative industries sector.

Lecturers:

Enrico Bonadio is Senior Lecturer in Law at City, University of London (The City Law School), where he teaches various modules on intellectual property (IP) law. He holds law degrees from the University of Florence (PhD) and the University of Pisa (LLB), and is Deputy Editor in Chief and Intellectual Property Correspondent of the European Journal of Risk Regulation.

Nicola Lucchi is Associate Professor of Law at the Jönköping International Business School where he is also affiliated researcher of the Media, Management and Transformation Centre (MMTC). He holds a PhD in law from the University of Padua, a Degree in Law and a postgraduate certificate in EU Law both from the University of Ferrara, Italy.

Workshop: Using Internet Paralanguages

As new platforms and technologies emerge, young people are inventing innovative ways to express ideas and communicate with their peers using mixed media on the internet. Most prominently, internet paralanguages that draw on non-lexical visual cultures are flourishing in mainstream, subcultural, and countercultural internet communities.

 

They have been used to communicative sensitive information across networks under the radar of authoritarian censors during global social movements, and situated to demonstrate different coded meanings for different audiences by prominent internet users such as Influencers. In this lecture and workshop, participants will explore some of these internet paralanguages, how they have been deployed by various brands in Scandinavia and Europe, and draw from their personal experiences of these communicative symbols.

 

Through brief case studies, the session will demonstrate how we can systematically track and understand the emergence of internet paralanguages through ethnographic methods, and how organisations may like to employ some of these internet-native communication strategies to reach their target audience. In the workshop to follow, participants will be invited to brainstorm innovative uses of internet paralangauges to promote various causes and initiatives for their businesses, and close with a short sharing session with other attendees.
