The Centre for Digital Cultures at the University of Birmingham is hosting a two day event to showcase the work of current and future researchers in Digital Cultures on the 6th and 7th of November 2019.
Day 1: Wed 6 Nov: 13:00-18:00
The first day will be aimed at UG and MA students with introductions to key themes in the field, discussion of central theorists and relevant writers from other fields, and with a focus on writing essays and dissertations on Digital Cultures topics.
Day 2: Thu 7 Nov: 13:00-18:00
The second day is for researchers at all levels, with a greater focus on research methods, developing funded projects, and presentations of current research in digital cultures.
All are welcome at both days and you do not need to have existing expertise in digital cultures. Please do circulate to other staff and students who may be interested in attending; the event is free, but registration is essential. Please RSVP using our event page:
Call for Participants:
Both days will be collaborative and participatory, and we invite you to contribute to the following sessions:
Day 1: Theory Pitch: Introduce a theorist you think is important for your work or for Digital Cultures more broadly (5-10 minutes).
Day 2: Research Showcase: Share an aspect of your research, with an emphasis on though-provoking ideas, problems, and other discussion points (10-15 minutes).
To contribute to either, or both, of these sessions, please email Matt Hayler and Dorothy Butchard at firstname.lastname@example.org by the 21st of October 2019.
