A book launch to celebrate the publication of ‘The Future of Media’, written by members of the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths.
The Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths have the pleasure of inviting you to the launch of our book, The Future of Media, coedited by us and Joanna Zylinska, and published by Goldsmiths Press. The event takes place at 5pm GMT on Thursday 27 October and will start with a roundtable discussion on the future of media, featuring many of the contributors to the book who include Daisy Asquith, Lisa Blackman, Clea Bourne, NG Bristow, James Burton, Sarah Cefai, Sue Clayton, Sean Cubitt, Natalie Fenton, Des Freedman, Gholam Khiabany, Richard Macdonald, Mirca Madianou, David Morley, Anamik Saha, Richard Shannon, Milly Williamson and the book’s editor Joanna Zylinska.
The event will include NG Bristow presenting his chapter on transpositional locative audio, “EVERYWHERE IN PARTICULAR, along with “IF 6 WERE 9” – a case study of THE ONE OH EIGHT PROJECT, co-authored with Richard Shannon and Mathepelo Mofokeng.
A pair of geolocated audio dramas set on the 108 bus routes in London and Cape Town.
The listener downloads the app which triggers the audio drama to play on their phone
as they sit on the bus heading along their city’s 108 route…
…transporting the London listener – in their mind’s ear – to Cape Town.
And the Cape Town listener to London.
The roundtable will be followed by a Q&A and drinks.
The event will take place on the Goldsmiths campus in LG02 of the Professor Stuart Hall building and online – click here to join event at 5pm.
