Overview of our programme (more detailed version to follow)
Wednesday, 24th April 2024
The spring school will begin on Wednesday afternoon with introductory activities allowing all participants to get to know and introduce themselves to other researchers, followed by discussions and exercises to learn what interdisciplinarity means, why it is important and what the core issues are when it comes to investigating the impact of digital technology on individuals and societies. These activities will lead up to our keynote speech by Dr Ysabel Gerrard offering insights about the role of interdisciplinarity in Digitech research from an expert perspective.
Thursday, 25th April 2024
The second day of our spring school will open with a talk by Dr. Jamie Davies presenting funder perspectives on interdisciplinarity and a Q and A session designed to facilitate conversations about how to secure funding successfully. Prof. Ruth Ogden will then lead an interactive activity to address the ins and outs of stakeholder identification and engagement. Art-based approaches to research will be introduced by Dr Mireille Fauchon, Gareth Proskourine-Barnett and Dr Dana Moree with a combination of talks and Q and A sessions. In the evening, we will invite all participants to listen to a panel discussion on how to achieve success in academia and provide the opportunity to question our panellists, Prof. Chantal Martin-Soelch, Dr Geoffrey Dierckxsens and Dr Eva Svatonova.
Friday, 26th April 2024
The final day will be dedicated to a series of inspiring workshops. Dr Dana Moree will introduce attendees to the involvement of vulnerable groups and individuals with trauma in research, while our second workshop with Dr Mireille Fauchon and Gareth Proskourine-Barnett will focus on reimaging art and illustration as research tools. Finally, Dr Marie Heřmanová, Dr Julia Gruhlich and Dr Nina Fárová will explore ethnographic methods and digital ethnography with participants. The spring school will conclude with a goodbye lunch on Friday afternoon.
There will be plenty of opportunities for networking throughout the event. Coffee breaks with light snacks will be offered and attendees are also invited to join dinners and a lunch on Thursday.
