Digital Media reading group: Autumn 2012 schedule

Posted on Updated on

An active and interdisciplinary reading group on digital themes, organised by Doctoral Researchers in the School of Media, Film and Music: Ryan Burns and Russell Pearce. The Autumn schedule is set up so you can plan which ones you’d like to attend.

Digital Media reading group imageThe Centre for Material Digital Culture reading group will be meeting again this year (see programme below, or download the programme PDF).  The reading group meets in Silverstone 203 on alternate Tuesdays from 4.30 – 5.30pm to discuss recently-published texts relating broadly to the theme ‘digital’.  All welcome – no need to book in advance, if you’re interested just come along.  Meetings will appear on the events page and the calendar, and the list is available on the website.

If you have any questions, feel free to email
Ryan or Russell .

We have set the programme for the Autumn term in advance to give people a chance to plan for the sessions (see below).  We would like your suggestions for readings for the Spring and Summer terms – all that’s required is that they are available online (including via the electronic library) and that they have some connection to digitalness.  If you have any readings to suggest, please email us.
