We are happy to announce a forthcoming DigitMEd workshop in Freie Universität of Berlin, at 26th – 27th April 2013 wih the title: “Observing digital media practices / Media as methods of observation“.
The workshop aims to introduce the global research team and those who are interested in theories and methodologies involved in the study of practices of off- and online communities of young people. The workshop also seeks to show how to adopt the use of media as a research method and how to collaborate with the field through media. Further discussions and talks will be connected to the concepts of inter- and cross-cultural investigations and the participation within media.
The workshop is part of the 2nd Work Package of DigitMEd and will be open to the public. For registration or querries, contact Mr. Martin Bittner at: martin.bittner[at]fu-berlin.de
