Announcement for submitting papers for
South Asian Conference on

'New Media Technologies and Freedom of Expression'

3 - 4 May 2009, Kathmandu, Nepal

______________________________________________________

The 'freedom of expression' as safeguarded by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 19 has consistently been subject to intimidation by various social, political and economic actions in the sub-continent of South Asian democracies in the past few years. Lately in South Asian countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka and Pakistan the press has been attacked, journalists assassinated, threatened and intimidated in their endeavour to uphold the principles and ethos of freedom of press and freedom of expression.

Though how dismal the situation maybe with press freedom and freedom of expression in South Asian countries, the new media technologies such as the Internet, hand-held devices (cell phones, PDAs) and wireless devices, and their applications like citizen journalism, blogs, Youtube and so on have provided promising opportunities to uphold freedom of press and freedom of expression in the sub-continent and elsewhere.

In this context of opportunities provided by new media technologies, to commemorate the World Press Freedom Day (3 May 2009), Panos South Asia (PSA) is organising a two day sub-regional conference 'South Asian Conference on New Media Technologies and Freedom of Expression' in Kathmandu, Nepal from 3 - 4 May 2009. The conference aims to provide a forum for practitioners of new media technologies and freedom of expression for knowledge sharing and fostering a regional solidarity.

Interested individual and institutional practitioners, researchers, academicians and related others from South Asian countries and elsewhere, in this regard are requested to submit an abstract (not more than 500 words) on three categories of: 1) New Media Technologies and Mainstream Media; 2) New Media Technologies and Citizen Journalism; and 3) New Media Technologies and Freedom of Expression/Information. In the first category the papers should address the issues of how new media technologies have been applied in the context of upholding press freedom in mainstream media practices. In the second category, submitted papers should address the issues of new media and citizen journalism and how it upholds freedom of expression/information. And the last but not the least category, the papers should discourse the overall issues of new media technologies and freedom of expression/information.

Papers submitted shall be selected on the basis of the accuracy to address and discourse the themes categorised in the preceding paragraph. For each category 4-5 papers shall be selected, which will be presented during the conference and published later by Panos South Asia.

Interested individual and institutional practitioners, researchers, academicians and related others may submit their abstracts with a brief bio-data by e-mail to prsa@panosradiosouthasia.org by 25 March 2009. Only selected paper authors will be notified by PSA by 31 March 2009. The complete papers of the selected abstracts need to be submitted by 20 April 2009. The costs (travel, food, hotel etc) for attending the conference by the authors of the selected papers shall be covered by Panos South Asia.

2. Single Kedua Efek Rumah Kaca: "Mosi Tidak Percaya"

Single Kedua Efek Rumah Kaca: "Mosi Tidak Percaya"
 
Album kedua Efek Rumah Kaca, Kamar Gelap, cukup menuai respons positif dengan penampilan single pertama "Kenakalan Remaja di Era Informatika"- sebuah lagu up beat yang mengangkat fenomena menyebarnya rekaman video seks dengan menggunakan kamera hand phone.  Kini Efek Rumah Kaca memperkenalkan single kedua berjudul "Mosi Tidak Percaya".
 
"Mosi Tidak Percaya" terdengar menghentak. Pendekatan musik dan liriknya begitu langsung pada apa yang ingin disampaikannya. Sebuah lagu bertema politik tentang orang-orang kepercayaan kita yang sulit dipercaya. Mengusung tema politik sekali pun- dalam kemasan Efek Rumah Kaca-  tidak menjadikan lagu ini "berjarak" dengan pendengarnya, terutama anak muda. Bahkan mungkin saja terasa sangat kontekstual dengan iklim politik sekarang. Hari ini, bisa jadi "semua orang" ngomongin politik.
 
Secara musik, "Mosi Tidak Percaya" menunjukkan aroma punk rock yang terasa kental. Sangat catchy, mudah disimak, berenergi. Tapi, tetap dalam rasa khas Efek Rumah Kaca. Bagi mereka yang mengikuti band ini, tidak jadi kehilangan sidik jari. Labih pada kejutan yang seru.
 
Bagian refrain "Mosi Tidak Percaya" bagai anthem yang mengajak pendengar untuk bernyanyi bersama. Siapa pun bisa dengan mudah mengikuti teriakan resah vokalis/gitaris Cholil : "Ini mosi tidak percaya/ Jangan anggap kami tak berdaya".
 
Bahkan, Cholil sudah geram sejak bait-bait pertama:
 
Ini masalah kuasa
Alibimu berharga
Kalau kami tak percaya
Lantas kau mau apa?
 
Lalu, dengan suara yang lebih tenang, Cholil mengulang-ulang kalimat ini: "Janjimu pelan-pelan akan menelanmu".
 
Dibalik campur aduk emosi lagu ini, apa yang ditawarkan Efek Rumah Kaca sebenarnya hal yang sederhana. "Mosi Tidak Percaya" tentang apa yang sedang kita bicarakan bersama. Karenanya, bisa ada di pikiran siapa saja.
 
 
EFEK RUMAH KACA adalah:
Cholil: gitar & vokal
Adrian: bas & vokal latar
Akbar: drum & vokal latar
 
Untuk berbagai informasi promosi, tangga lagu/chart, dan sebagainya silakan menghubungi Yuri (Booking/Promotion Manager) melalui efekrumahkaca@gmail.com atau 081394257339.
 
Terima kasih.
