Critical Ways of Seeing 21-22/5/2014 Visualizing Knowledge and the Digital - Tool, Politics, or Art?

Two Day Symposium and Master Class with Dr Philippe Rekacewicz (Head Geographer & Cartographer, Le Monde Diplomatique), Giulio Frigieri (Infographics, The Guardian), Alfredo Cramerotti (Mostyn, Wales' Contemporary Art Centre), Mushon Zer-Aviv (Media Activist, Tel Aviv/New York), Stefano Cagol (Contemporary Artist, Italy) and (tbc) Marsha Rosengarten (Sociology, Goldsmiths) and Davina Jackson (d-city network).

Hosts: Global Media & Transnational Communications Program and Radical Media Forum of the Media & Communications Department, Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Convener: Prof. Marianne Franklin, with Elinor Carmi and Paola Crespi.

This two-day workshop brings world-renowned exponents of conventional and radical cartography, media digital activism, and contemporary art once again to the Media & Communications Department in two ways:

1) To hold workshop sessions for researchers (students and faculty) looking for new ways to present and visualize their findings as they make use of digital tools in their work;

2) To offer focused sessions with guest speakers on selected topics. The symposium will open with a public session on the fundamentals of cartography and how these are affected by the shift to the digital. It will end with a public debate that brings our experts together

* The Symposium is open to all registered participants.

* Those who wish to be considered as projects for the Masterclass sessions need to apply by 30th April 2014. More details below.

When & Where: May  21-22, 2014, New Academic Building and Media Research Centre (to be confirmed), Goldsmiths College, University of London.
