Register: https://aussts2020-sessiontwo.eventbrite.com.au

Presenters: Celia Roberts (ANU), Adrian Mackenzie (ANU), and Emily van
der Nagel (Monash)

Facilitators: Courtney Addison (VUW), Declan Kuch (UNSW), and Owen
McNamara (ANU)

Description: In this event, Celia Roberts (ANU), Adrian Mackenzie (ANU),
and Emily van der Nagel (Monash) will discuss the conceptual possibilities,
ethics, and politics of conducting research online. At a time when
curtailed mobility has prompted many of us to take our work online, these
conversations will consider some of the digital artefacts that avail
themselves of STS analyses. While some traditional archives have gone
online and other forms of archive are taking shape through the affordances
of the internet (Ogden, Halford, and Carr 2019), conceptualising digital
life as archive attunes us to the epistemic resources and the power
dynamics that guide their aggregation online (Zeitlan 2012).

This event comprises three/four ten minute talks on this theme and a
subsequent panel discussion, followed by a workshop for HDR and ECRs who
wish to engage further in these discussions.

How to participate:

This session has two parts: the first half will be a presentation from the
presenters; the second half will be a workshop style format with
participants taking part in activities and discussion.
