International Research Conference and PhD Workshop
Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany
22-24 November 2012
In the context of developing a platform for knowledge exchange and research across the arts and sciences, the reSource transmedial culture berlin/transmediale festival has established a partnership with the Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana University of Lüneburg and the Digital Aesthetics/Participatory IT Research Centre, Aarhus University to foster new forms of collaborative research, peer-review, publication and performative knowledge dissemination.
The international research conference and PhD workshop takes next transmediale’s thematic framework (BWPWAP, Back When Pluto Was a Planet) as a broad starting point, and is a chance for researchers to share ideas and development processes across and beyond the time/space of academic research paradigms. The conference and workshop asks how BWPWAP can be interpreted in the context of research culture that has been significantly destabilised by network culture and digital media.
Around 20 international PhD students have been selected after submitting their research abstracts via a public call. Students and researchers will meet at the Luphana University to present their activities and reflect on further networked research practices, which will culminate into the publication of a P2P reviewed newspaper presented in the framework of transmediale 2013.
The event follows on from similar events organised in 2012 and 2011 at Universität der Künste (Berlin), and Aarhus University, respectively. For the publication resulting from the last events, visit the following.
