2019 research seminars and series

The Digital Studio hosts a diverse range of seminars, leading debates and discussion for digital scholars; whether critics, creatives or champions.

Digital Politics

The digital environment and the political sphere are now inextricably linked. Digital interference in elections, the rise of online activism, and everyday understandings of politics mediated via Twitter or Facebook, raise new issues for research. What are the digital trends, actors and interventions that are critical to the activity of democracy, policy formation, and political activism? This seminar series examined these intersections between the digital and the political. This seminar series is presented by the Digital Studio in partnership with the School of Social and Political Sciences and The Policy Lab.

Indigenous Australia and Digital Futures

Digital technology is rapidly changing the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ history and contemporary culture; both within Indigenous communities and for settler Australia. Presenting the work of researchers engaged with the influence of digital technologies on Indigenous futures in Australia, this seminar series interrogated questions of cultural expression, activism, relationality, sovereignty, and decolonisation within the digital world.

This seminar series was presented by the Digital Studio in partnership with the Indigenous-Settler Relations Collaboration.
