hi, Tuesday week 12 we meet in the borough road gallery (and not L331 room as previously advertised in timetable). The gallery became free for us and we can use it for the research paper presentations;
People have been asking about the use of images in the research paper. You are researching and writing about photobooks so it makes all sense to include images of its pages, covers, etc. It supports your statements and shows you did your research.
Besides contributing to the photobook field and community, once that research becomes available!
Just list all your images at the end of the essay acknowledging your sources.
And use the same images you used to illustrate your essay for you pecha-kucha presentation.
All the very best,
Ps- I wil be in the office this afternoon so if you have any further questions stop by or email me
As per your request, here are the slides I presented week 11, summarising assesment and submission of course work as well as few tips on paragraph writing and referencing. Good luck with your portfolio and research paper.
BOOK LIVE! – DEADLINE EXTENDED to 13th february 5pm
Book live! International symposium and related live events at London South Bank University 8th – 9th June 2012 a collaboration between the Centre for Media and Cultural Research (CMCR) at LSBU and bookRoom Research Cluster at UCA Farnham.
The event will bring together theorists, researchers and practitioners to stimulate a dialogue across disciplines on the ability of the book to keep up with digital culture and the emergence of new modes of writing, of photographing, of reading, or archiving and of disseminating ‘on the page’ work. The purpose of this conference is to examine the current ‘transforming’ and ‘expanding’ of the book rather than its virtual disintegration.
The conference will include international guest speakers from the broader world of publishing, photography and experimental writing as well as short presentations of book works and a series of live experimental and durational ‘readings’.
The two keynote speakers are Joan Fontcuberta (photographer, artist and all-round critic of contemporary culture from Barcelona) and Sharon Helgason Gallagher (founder and director of D.A.P and ARTBOOK in New York). There will be a performance of the full twelve hours of John Cage’s Empty Words (first published in1979 by Wesleyan University Press) by Sylvia Alexandra Schimag (Germany), coinciding with the release of the complete recording by Editions Wandelweiser.
CALL FOR PAPER AND PRESENTATION max 25 minutes Call for papers, presentations, panels and ‘readings’ dealing with (but not limited to) the following themes and research questions;
- How has digital technology allowed the book to expand its boundaries, both in space and time?
- Innovative convergence of traditional craft skills and advanced technologies in the making, reading, archiving or disseminating of books.
- Interdisciplinary experiments that addresses the cultural translations between traditional skills and advanced technologies.
- Explorations that reconsider the contemporary or future role of the book socially, culturally, politically. - Innovative or disastrous explorations and transgressions of ebook readers.
- What do we gain and lose with on screen ‘reading’?
- How is conventional publishing adapting to fast changing digital economy?
- What has become of collecting in our digital culture?
- What is knowledge now that computers can provide and keep everything?
- High culture versus digital culture
Beyond the conference we will be bringing together papers and other contributions as a publication in its own right; an interesting survey of current thinking and innovative practice informed by both the themes and the findings of the conference. Edited and designed by bookRoom press, and published by RGAP.
Deadline for abstracts: 13th february 5pm Please send abstracts to Emmanuelle Waeckerle (email@example.com) Submissions from doctoral students and early-career postdoctoral researchers are encouraged, as well as submissions from non-academic publishers, collectors, artists, writers and thinkers.
