The Centre for Postdigital Cultures would like to invite you to our Digital Subjectivity and Mediated Intimacy Conference on 22nd–23rd November at Coventry University.
In this two-day event, we look towards creating an assemblage of ideas, concepts, thoughts and equivalences between a number of projects. The starting point for this assemblage is the TubeCrush project, funded by the British Academy, which aimed to tap into a web of concerns, including but not limited to: contemporary masculinity, the city, digital media, the shareability of images, urban workplaces, intimate relationship and privacy and consent.
Taking our cue from the project, the work presented over these two days will ‘call at a number of stations’, exploring how these concerns have influenced others’ work and how they have come to shape other projects. In doing so, we hope to create two days that will ‘scale out’, rather than ‘scale up’, and provide connections between research in a way that is exploratory and relational.
Included in the two days, and based on our own experiences and those of some of our speakers, are workshops that will speak to academic concerns about how research in gender and feminist studies can engage with the public and with impact.
