Digital Cultures Research Celebration
Dec 6, 2013, 2pm-4pm
Explore digital cultures research at a celebration co-hosted by six York Faculties in collaboration with the Office of the Vice-President Research & Innovation.
The event will feature mini-research byte presentations followed by Q&As on topics ranging from sound, affect and digital communities, copyright in the digital domain, augmented reality storytelling, social media and oral culture at Ugandan heritage sites, digital technology design, and librarian and information systems.
Film Professor Caitlin Fisher, Canada Research Chair in Digital Culture, will speak about “Augmented Reality Storytelling: Emerging Tools and Practices.” Her talk will explore expressive tools for augmented reality content creation – both custom tools developed in the Faculty of Fine Arts AR Lab and a new generation of easy-to-use commercial tools – and workflow for the production of immersive and handheld augmented reality stories. Fisher will also showcase some of the augmented reality storytelling projects she and her students are creating.
Other presentations are by Carys Craig, associate professor, Osgoode Hall Law School; Mary Leigh Morbey, associate professor, Faculty of Education, and associate director, Institute for Research on Learning Technologies, with Mary Pat O’Meara (MA); York University librarian Stacy Allison-Cassin; David Cecchetto, assistant professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies; and Melanie Baljko, associate professor, Lassonde School of Engineering.
Admission is free and open to all students, faculty and staff.
Attendees are asked to RSVP by Dec. 5.
