PhD Winter Workshop in Critical Technology Studies
July 10 - July 11
A two-day PhD-led workshop for an emerging cohort of interdisciplinary researchers in Australia and the Pacific conducting critical studies of technologies. Come share knowledge, build a network and map our work.
EOI’s are now closed for this event.
Technologies of artificial intelligence, automated decision-making and machine learning have moved rapidly from obscurity to ubiquity, are entangled with the social, scientific, economic and political and, as objects of study, are hard to describe and theorise, subverting established research methods and modes of communication.
With all this in mind, we are convening an emerging generation of PhDs over two days, in a collaborative and creative forum of individual and group working sessions, reading and discussion, and evening social events. The workshop is a satellite event of the ADM+S 2023 Symposium and follows an earlier event held at ANU in 2022. In the days following the workshop, participants will also have opportunities to join several events in conjunction with PhD/ECR networks from ADM+S and AusSTS.
Want to be a part of the workshop?
The event is open to students enrolled in a PhD or other Doctoral program at a university in Australia, Aotearoa/NZ or other institution in the Pacific. You should be one year or more through your PhD, with your candidature confirmed and a well-developed and comprehensively designed research project. We are keen for people from across the region, and travel scholarships are available (see EOI form for more details).
We have 30 places available for this workshop and participants will be selected through expression of interest (EOI). If you would like to join us, please submit your EOI by 21 April 2023.
Organisers: Glen Berman (ANU), Ned Cooper (ANU), Zoe Horn (WSU), Libby Young (USyd).
