Ragnhild reminded me that the Norwegian Medieforskningskonferanse (media researcher conference) is in Bergen this year, and that the deadline for sending in abstracts is next week – June 15. The conference sounds rather useful in that it’s set up as a bunch of workshops where you discuss work in progress. You submit 2-300 words now, then if accepted, you send in a 12-20 page draft of an academic paper, you read other people’s papers and you discuss them. Could be rather useful. I’d like to know more of the media and communications people in Norway who do digital media, too.

Hm, but what would I write about? And should I submit it to the group on digital media, on crossmedia or on fiction?
