Subject: The Tablet Symposium - Deadline Extension

The Tablet Symposium: Examining New Media Objects
University of Sussex, 10th April 2013.
Calling for papers, presentations and discussions of tablets, ipads, kindles, e-readers and other new media artifacts.

Extended Deadline for Abstracts: Tuesday 22nd Jan

We invite contributions to a one-day symposium at the University of Sussex, hosted by the Centre for Material Digital Culture. The aim of the symposium is twofold. On the one hand it aims to examine questions about the take up of tablets, readers and ipads across many walks of life including academic, artistic, pedagogical, medical, corporate, activist and everyday contexts. On the other hand it aims to create a space of dialogue, discussion and research community across this area.

We welcome empirical, theoretical, critical and creative responses to tablets, e-readers and other artifacts.  Abstracts can take any format, but as a rough guide please submit a title and 200-400 words outlining your proposal.

Please send abstracts or proposals by Tuesday 22nd January 2013 to:
r.burns at sussex.ac.uk
