The aim of the research cluster is to bring together academics from a range of backgrounds with an interest in technology and new media in order to explore and discuss recent and ongoing research. We welcome all students (undergraduate and postgraduate), staff, and visiting scholars to attend and participate in any/all sessions.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, the Technology and New Media Research Cluster convene during the term on alternating Mondays 12-1.30pm in 17 Mill Lane Seminar Room E.

This year, the cluster will cover a wide range of research topics including trust, automation, and digital labor, connectivity in marginalised communities, democracy and censorship on social media, privacy, intimacy and gender in digital spaces, values and narratives of artificial intelligence, digital mediations of music, art and the avant-garde, and augmented reality. Many speakers will join the research cluster exclusively for their session, and we therefore encourage anyone with an interest on the topic not to miss the opportunity.
