Digital Culture: Innovative practices and critical theories

ECREA Digital Culture&  Communication 3rd workshop
Barcelona, Spain, November 24-25

co-organised by the
ECREA Digital Culture&  Communication (DCC) section,
Humanities Department and Information and Communication Sciences Department, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya,
with support from the
Centre for Material Digital Culture (DMDC), University of Sussex, UK


This workshop seeks to explore innovative perspectives on digital
culture and the study of digital culture. Our concern is to focus on
developing forms of theorizing, critiquing, understanding and
researching digital culture, forms and practice. Our intention is to
contribute to emerging work responding (1) to ‘new’ new media
technologies of all kinds, and (2) to respond to developments in media research on technology and innovation.

We invite contributions of all kinds, but suggest proposals for papers may fall into three main areas. Each relates to theories, practices and methodologies of innovation. They are:

1) Digital Media and the senses. This may include works on or related to enhanced reality, locative media and virtual worlds.
2) Creative practices and participation in new media. Here we are
particularly concerned with discussing concepts of participation,
co-creativity, co-design or co-innovation in creative processes
involving audiences and independent creators in a wide spectrum of activities including art, photography, video, videogames.
3) Digital research and education in digital culture.This would seek to explore innovative theoretical and methodological approaches in digital media studies as well as innovative teaching tools.

The workshop develops concepts and ideas developed at the previous Digital stream workshop ‘Revisiting Digital Theories’ – our goal in exploring innovative forms of media culture is to do so within frameworks that are capable of thinking through technological and critical innovation whilst also recognizing the connection of both with earlier forms.

Please submit an extended abstract (500 words max.) by the 6th of June 2011 (and clearly stating which topic section you would like to submit to) to:

Venue: Centre d’Estudis i Recursos Culturals, Barcelona (Spain)
