“Being digital should be more interesting than just being electronic”

Russell Davies, of Wired fame, reflects again on the postdigital in his blog, claiming to have coined the term at the Thinking Digital conference in 2009 (but see our food for thought post for an earlier publication with ‘postdigital’ in the title…).

Reminder: Screenworks Call deadline 30th Sept

Reminder: Call for Submissions

We are seeking moving image work on film, video and new media platforms. We welcome work from doctoral students and post doctoral researchers, as well as those at the cutting edge of practice research both nationally and internationally. Following a hiatus, Screenworks has been relaunched online, under the new JMPScreenworks banner, under the editorship of Dr Charlotte Crofts (University of the West of England). Volumes 1 (2007) and 2 (2008) were published on DVD and distributed with The Journal of Media Practice. We are now seeking new submissions for our online publication, following the relaunch at the JMP Symposium in June 2011, aiming to make work available for the annual MeCCSA Conference in Jan 2012. This volume of Screenworks will be an open call.

Submission Deadline
The deadline for consideration for Vol 3 is Friday Sep 30th 2011. Submissions should be emailed to Dr Charlotte Crofts at screenworks@jmpscreenworks.com, with “Screenworks Submission” in the subject line – with the 1500-word supporting research statement attached as a Word .doc, including a live URL to the screenwork itself on Vimeo, with password where necessary.

Please see the website for detailed submission requirements and the submission form: http://www.jmpscreenworks.com/page/submissions

Collab Docs Review of postdigi

Mandy Rose, who chaired the session on Collaborative, Participatory Practices and New Forms of Authorship, has reviewed postdigi on her Collab Docs blog.

Mandy’s Are you happy? project might also be of interest:

Jean Rouch, Marceline Loridan and Edgar Morin plan the street interviews in a scene from Chronicle of a Summer.

Exactly fifty years ago, in an experiment in documentary, people on the streets of Paris were filmed by Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin answering the question, “Are you happy?”. The Are you happy? project is finding out what happens when we ask the same question in the global environment of the web today.

Just a reminder about JMPScreenworks.com – we’re keen to have reviews of this event (500 words or thereabouts) and submissions of practice for online publication to Screenworks editor Charlotte Crofts at screenworks@jmpscreenworks.com (please read the submission guidelines), and working papers for publication on the website or submissions of full articles for peer review and publication in the hard copy of the journal to Gareth Palmer editor of  The Journal of Media Practice at info@jmpscreenworks.com

Thank you

Many thanks for all of you who attended Postdigital Encounters yesterday – it was great to have you there and hope that you are still tingling with postdigi technostalgia – may the debate continue here and @postdigi / #postdigi.

I will be posting presentations up over the coming weeks – presenters if you haven’t already given Nick or me a copy of your presentation please can you get in touch.  I will link to them from the title of the presentation in the Programme section, within each panel.  Photos and video will go up when I have time.

If you would like to review the event you can either email me or post it as a comment here – it might be nice to post responses to individual panels / papers / practice underneath the actual abstract in the Programme section. General comments could go under the About page.

Thanks again for making the event a warm but critical exploration of where we are in the state of the postdigital.  Keep us posted about your work and, if you are local pop in the Digital Cultures Research Centre or the Pervasive Media Studio Friday lunchtime talk.
