CFP: Empowerment Tech

The Institute of Communications Studies at the University of Leeds (UK) has announced its Call for Papers for a May 18th conference "Communication Technologies of Empowerment."

From the announcement:
"New forms of communication have become a key tool for global social movements. Whether their struggles are focused on questions of global justice, class, gender, race or the environment, activists have found in the decentralized and inexpensive nature of the Internet and mobile telephony the media the media they need to organise themselves and make their actions public..."
Deadline for proposals: Jan 31, 2007.
