New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU Tisch School of the Arts launches the second issue of Adjacent, an online journal of emerging media.

Nancy Hechinger, ITP faculty member and Adjacent’s editor-in-chief, said, “This journal is conceived, edited, designed, programmed, and produced by ITP students – at the same time they are carrying a full course load. The quality of the journal – both its look and content – is a testament to their dedication and professionalism. When we were planning this issue, we were drawn to articles that not only covered a variety of topics but also shared common threads. The subject matter in this issue is complex and pressing, and we hope they spark good conversations as they did in our editorial meetings.”

Some of the featured articles in this issue include:

A Case for Clarity in the Age of Algorithmic Injustice
by Jen Kagan, ITP ’17 and research resident, (2017-2018) covers New York City’s attempt to develop a policy that addresses the true implications of algorithmic decision-making, the first city in the nation to do so.

Crowdsourced Data and the Fight Against Florida’s Sea Level Rise

A Literature of the Feed and the Shift to a Fragmented Self

What You See May Not Be There: The State of the Subject Amid Pervasive Computer
