Digital Studio Seminar
Recoding relationality: Indigenous new media and digital storytelling
Seminar held on 5 December 2018
This seminar critically explored the theoretical, cultural, political-economic, and gendered dynamics underwriting the histories and futures of Indigenous new media. A key focus was examining the ways in which new media and digital storytelling connect to and support key issues in the field of Indigenous studies, such as sovereignty, self-determination, decolonisation, and land rights.
This event was organised by the Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration, a new research unit at the University of Melbourne, and hosted in the Digital Studio. You can follow the Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration on twitter at @ISCollaborates
