Free digital culture and research event: The Selfie and Social Activism Symposium, UNSW Dec. 12.


The Selfie and Social Activism symposium will address methodological issues in practice-based research engaged with digital culture via a combination of formal papers & hands-on mini-workshops. It will explore the overlaps and convergence between art, media, design, cultural studies, sociology, and industry engagement to better understand media ethics, aesthetics and practice in the digital era. The symposium will present workshops and papers that focus on topics ranging from ‘selfies as method’ to the intersections between social media activism and mainstream media; and emerging narratives around the privacy and security of mobile media since the introduction of new Australian metadata laws.

Please note this is a free event, and catering will NOT be provided.
