CAIS research group hosts digital international workshop

After our workshop had to be postponed last year due to the Covid pandemic, this year we invite to a digital event: Our research group will discuss the topic “Unequal visibility in digital spaces” with international guests on March 18 and 19, 2021.

Our first guest, Olivier Driessens (Phd), Assistant Professor at the University of Copenhagen, will focus on the relationship between the concepts of visibility and attention. Joëlle Cruz (PhD), Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, will then speak on “(In)Visibility in alternative organizing from the perspective of postcolonial approaches”. The following day, we look forward to an interactive input entitled “Other sensing possibilities: Permeability, leaking” by Johanna Schaffer, Professor for Theory and Practice of Visual Communication at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, and the Berlin artists MELT (Isabel Paehr and Loren Britton).

As respondents, we will welcome Dr. Joan Ramon Rodríguez-Amat, Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, and Dr. Sarah Liu, Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.

We are looking forward to an interesting exchange and in-depth discussions and we would like to thank the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS), Bochum, which made the international workshop possible and provided funding.
