we know this is also the *attention economy*

Field of Mobility Studies....
Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures invites essay submissions for a special issue addressing mobility in relation to youth texts and culture(s). We welcome essays that consider registers of race, class, gender, and disability. Essays should be between 6,000 and 9,000 words in length and prepared for blind peer-review.
Mobility invites us to think about bodies, identities, and agency from diverse disciplinary and methodological perspectives. Im/mobility can be many things: geographic, physical, ideological, imaginative, temporal, social. What are some of the ways that we might analyze this amorphous—in fact, mobile—topic in light of young people, their texts, and their cultures?
Submissions are requested by: 30 June 2015.
Topics may include:
- Dancing children
- Border crossings and home(land) security systems
- Movement as performance/choreography
- Narratives of upward/downward mobility
- Transformations through mobility/mobilizing transformations
- Mobile audiences and audiences of mobility
- Movement as affect and affect as “being moved”
- Planes, trains, and automobiles
- Immigration and generations
- Ability and impairment
- Kinesthetics or kin-aesthetics
- Mobilizing youth polities
- Digital movement and mobile communication
- Play and playgrounds
- Containment and freedom of movement
Inquiries may be directed to Larissa Wodtke, Managing Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org

Where are we now?
rooted in patriarchy/racism as the very conditions for controlling/constructing knowledge & subjectivity
Thus the very conditions for "knowing" as such are *NOT* neutral.
conditions of cognitive triage
Mark Carrigan (http://markcarrigan.net/2015/03/24/life-in-the-accelerated-academy-1/)
"The urgent is crowding out the important"
(identity, image, consumption)
(friendship, ties, intimacy, privacy)
shrinking, compressing, multiplying, etc.
'cognitive triage’ notion initially used by "Kevin Roose to describe the frantic state of day-to-day survival into which trainee financiers fall in order to survive their deliberately brutal socialisation period.
When we’re triaging, we attend to the most immediate requirements and our
. Under these conditions,
imagination becomes more difficult
so too does extended deliberation about our circumstances and what matters to us
. ...We can see many contemporary trends as attempts to escape triaging and to get beyond ‘the day-to-day’ e.g. digital detoxes, information diets, life hacking, productivity culture, mindfulness." Skeptical: "because they tend to intensify our focus on our immediate behaviour: even if they help us cope with the pernicious effects of cognitive triage, they further narrow our horizons rather than broadening them"
Cognitive triage breeds a mentality within which tasks become obstacles to negotiate rather than activities through which we can become who we are. Consider the to-do list: each item is given a equal weight, regardless of the meaning it holds for us. When we’re triaging, we rush. We don’t attend to the task at hand, following its internal logic as we lead our way through it. There’s a relational richness to practical activity which can so easily be obliterated by the mentality produce by triaging.
Let's try visual frame analysis:
Point of departure = the first comprehensive descriptions of visual lexico-grammar by O’Toole in Language of Displayed Art (1994) & Kress & van Leeuwen in Reading Images: The Grammar of Visual Design (1996)
- most ambitious descriptive efforts yet and the most commonly applied as well.
-fundamental for more recent multimodal work (e.g. Kress & van Leeuwen 2001, Baldry & Thibault 2006, O’Halloran 2004)
