Due to the current situation the workshop will not take place. We will inform about a possible alternative date on this website. (Update, March 2020)
“Unequal visibility in digital spaces“ — our research group will discuss this topic with international guests at the Bochum Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) on the 19th and 20th March 2020.
Our first guest, Olivier Driessens, Assistant Professor at the University of Copenhagen, will focus on the relationship between the concepts of visibility and attention. The second contribution is an interactive input entitled “visiblity [programmability]” by Johanna Schaffer, Professor for Theory and Practice of Visual Communication at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, and the Berlin artist Isabel Paehr. The following day, Graham Meikle, Professor of Communication and Digital Media at the University of Westminster in London, will speak on “Beyond social media: Networked sensors, communication and visibility.“ As a respondent, we will welcome, among others, Joan Ramon Rodríguez-Amat, Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.
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.
