Recoding Relationality: Indigenous New Media and Storytelling
The Lab, Level 2 of the Digital Studio (West Wing via the rear lift)
This talk will critically explore the theoretical, cultural, political-economic and gendered dynamics underwriting the histories and futures of Indigenous new media. A key focus will be 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.
