As always this is a truly interdisciplinary event and we have a fantastic keynote speaker lined up, Liesbet van Zoonen. Lisbet is professor of media and communication at Loughborough University, UK and professor in media and popular culture at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands.
In addition we have two brilliant plenary panels at the conference. For these our panelists are: Mary L. Gray (Microsoft Research and Indiana University), Larissa Hjorth (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), Daniel Miller (University College London), Susanna Paasonen (University of Turku), Zizi Papacharissi (University of Illinois-Chicago), and Terri Senft (New York University).
Also we have two pre-conference workshops operating on the 18th October, as well as the usual Doctoral Colloquium. Details here: http://ir13.aoir.org/pre-conference-workshops-2/
Do join us if you can, it should be a wonderful event!
Ben and Feona.
