speakers at MiT5: the unofficial blogosphere version
Instead of waiting for the schedule to come up for the MiT5 conference (at MIT, April 27-29), I googled the blogosphere, and found the following participants:
- Scott Rettberg, Nick Montfort and I are doing a panel on “Appropriation and Collaboration in Digital Writing”. My bit is mostly about blogs.
- Derek Kompare on authorship. His blog has other interesting authorship and literature things, looks interesting. Mike Newman left a comment on this post that he would also attend.
- Jean Burgess writes that she , Axel Bruns and John Banks are doing a panel on “user-led content creation”. Jean’s work on quotidian creativity is great, and Axel does very interesting things about gatewatching, blogging, produsage and citizen journalism, so this should be good. Oh, look, I think Jean’s paper will be on Flickr, social aesthetics, and the reconfiguration of the relations between everyday life, ëprofessionalí photography and artworlds.
- Luca Rossi is co-presenting a paper titled “Creativity, Ownership and collaboration in the digital age” (thanks Luca for adding this in the comments!)
- Kim Christen is doing a panel with on Technological Translations and Digital Dilemmas: Leveraging Culture for Heritage, Language and Policy Projects, with
Kate Hennessey, Nariyo Kono, Patrick Moore, Jason Shultz and Katerina Martina Teaiwa.
- Paul Benson is giving a paper on Image, Network, Narrative: Creative Dispersion in the Novel of Digital Culture
- Casey O’Donnell is giving a talk on Mixed Messages: Independent and Collaborative Console Video Game Development
- Alec Austin is giving a paper on “Authorship in Interactive Media: Collaboration, Interaction, and User-Generated Content in the Games Industry”
- K. is doing something on remix culture.
- Mary Madden (Pew Internet & American life project), D. Travers Scott (communication, university of southern california), Chuck Tryon (film and media studies, Fayetteville state university), and David Silver (media studies, San Francisco, also founder of the Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies, which has the best collection of reviews of books in the field I know of as well as things like lists of course syllabi in cyberculture and so on) – here’s their panel abstract.
- Alice Marwick‘s sidebar says she’s presenting at MiT5. Doesn’t say what on, but she’s “studying social technology from a feminist perspective” – sounds interesting.
- Jessica, whose blog is called “Replayable – stories : games : community” is presenting at MiT5 instead of going to the Ladies Rock Camp. I kind of hope she’ll rock the conference, too.
- Geoffrey Long is presenting a paper called “Radial Narrative Maps and Mike Mignola’s Hellboy”
- Mike Newman‘s doing a paper called “The Community as Artist: The Show with Ze Frank” about the way web video exploits the architecture of participation (thanks Mike for adding this in your comment to this post!)
Ha, that was quite good fun. Do you know of any more people and presentations at MiT5?
