Description

DVC II--DAY 1

‘Publics’ and Smart Cities—Jan 7th

Our first day will take four cuts through the digital, visual and cultural in urban settings. Examining environmental data, urban screens both large and small, storytelling about urban change, and engagements with future urban technologies, we will draw academics and practitioners into conversation to consider the various ways in which publics — both actual and projected — intersect and gather around digital/visual media and technologies. The academics and practitioners will each be invited to speak for 20 minutes, followed by a 20 minute session of discussant facilitated dialogue and open time for questions. The speakers are:


—Jennifer Gabrys (Goldsmiths University of London) with TBA

—Scott Rodgers (Birkbeck College, University of London) with Clare Walton (Community Action Milton Keynes)

—Adam Greenfield (Author, Against the Smart City and Radical Technologies) with TBA

—Zlatan Krajina (University of Zagreb) with TBA

St. John’s College auditorium, January 7 & 8

The two day gathering on 7 and 8 January will be hosted at St. John’s College, Oxford. Here we will assemble a group of scholars and practitioners to discuss the ways in which digital visualising technologies are convening different types of publics across cities and heritage organisations.

Structured around the themes of digital urban publics and the imagined pasts of urban heritage, each of the two days will foster dialogue between media theorists and digital humanities professionals, digital designers, cultural geographers and urban campaigners. Anchored by keynotes and fleshed out by dynamic panels and discussants, we’re thrilled to host such an impressive congress of digital media scholars and professionals.
