This Special Issue will focus on theoretically driven work that examines the mutually influential relationship between humans, platforms, devices, and code. Articles can be wholly theoretical or incorporate empirical data, broadly defined, that illustrates a theoretical argument and/or complicates existing theoretical debates. A partial list of suggested topics includes network formation and maintenance, race and racism, big data, small data, gender and sexism/cis-ism, intersectionalities, courtship and dating, sex and sexuality, algorithms and curation, privacy and publicity, digital dualism, augmented reality, popular discourses of new and social media, embodied technology, social media ecologies, prosumption/identity prosumption, political processes, and labor and exploitation. Articles published in this Special Issue will counter utopic and dystopic renderings of technological pervasiveness, and move beyond descriptive analyses. Instead, the issue will push theoretical advancements that illuminate the multifaceted relationship between humans and information communication technologies. To optimize interdisciplinarity and a broad reach, authors are encouraged to write clearly and avoid disciplinary jargon.
