Digital Memories Seminar

This joint initiative between the Centre for Media and Culture Research (CMCR) and the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory (CCM) seeks to address the impact of globalization and digitization on the production of individual and collective memories. The seminar will open with Anna Reading’s conceptualization of the notion of ‘globital memory’ which is changing the epistemology of memory, followed by an exploration of memory work in digitally networked environments. The second part of the seminar will focus on two specific case studies. The seminar is aimed at researchers, research students and those working in the broad memory studies field.

Screenworks — Practice Based Research site

For MA and PhD students interested in seeing how postgraduates around the UK are defining their practice-based research projects take a look at the latest edition of the Screenworks website produced in association with the Journal of Media Practice.

In addition to students providing 1000 word rationales for their work, Screenworks includes comments from peer reviewers. Well worth a look. Patrick
