Web as Culture: Ethnographic, linguistic and didactic perspectives
 
International Symposium organized by the Graduate Centre for Study of Culture (GCSC) and the Centre for Media and Interactivity (ZMI), Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen, Germany
Main Building and Margarete-Bieber-Hall, Ludwigstrasse 23/34, 35390 Giessen 
 
Justus Liebig University Giessen, July 16 - 18, 2009
 
The World Wide Web is a cultural space in which new forms of social networking, of creating, acquiring and teaching knowledge and competencies, and of constructing personal and cultural identities have emerged. The International Symposium "Web as Culture" addresses issues that are involved in the processes of the construction and the perpetuation of social structures, cultural narratives, memories, knowledge and language in the World Wide Web. Particular emphasis is placed on sociocultural processes of transformation such as the change of social networks, the change of teaching and learning cultures and language change instigated by the World Wide Web. These sociocultural processes of transformation will be discussed from various disciplinary perspectives and at all relevant levels of analysis in three parallel sections "Networks, Ethnography, and the Web", "Learning, Teaching, and the Web" and "Language, Linguistics, and the Web".
