This year's theme: Precarity, Preservation, and Praxis

With the casualization of labor and the instability of the job market, precarity has become an increasingly pressing issue for both the media industries and the academy. Equally precarious is the state of preservation, as the production and circulation of media content outstrips the resources and workforce assigned to preserve it. Woven throughout and between precarity and preservation is praxis, the ways in which labor, strategy, and skill are marshaled to combat these threats in the industry and in academia.

Flow engages scholars in historical and contemporary trends and developments within media culture through a series of roundtables questions generated by the Flow community. Continuing this proud tradition, here are the 2018 conference roundtable questions exploring this year’s theme of precarity, preservation, and praxis.
