CONF: NWCDT Conference ‘Digital Humanities, Human Technologies’, Media City, 10th – 11th Oct

    19

    The NWCDT annual conference is taking place on the 10th and 11th October at Media City UK.

    The North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership Conference 2018 is a student-led initiative which aims to bring together postgraduate, early-career researchers and scholars to actively engage into discussion and explore the concept of ‘Technology’ from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives in the Arts and Humanities.

    This conference seeks to examine and interrogate how people have and continue to understand and use technology across the Arts and Humanities. Inextricably linked to human experience, technology has the power to transform, construct and disrupt daily lives, landscapes and cultures. How people have encountered and responded to the changes that technologies bring, and the changes in technologies themselves, in both positive and negative ways form the central concerns of this conference.

    The conference will bring together papers, posters, displays, activities and performances from researchers in this field from across the country over the course of the two days.

    The conference is free for all NWCDTP candidates and all presenters.

    If anyone would like to attend the conference who is not an NWCDTP candidate then conference admission will be charged at £25 per day.

    There’s lots of Manchester Met students and alumni presenting at this conference from a range of disciplines, see the full programme on the website.
