QUT’s Digital Media Research Centre and Urban Informatics Research Lab welcome you to our 1-day workshop about how to combine research and theory in the investigation of digital change.
Digital change involves the shifting of people, relationships, institutions, policies and laws, geographies, urban landscapes, and society in relation to new digital technologies. This workshop challenges researchers with quantitative or qualitative data to tie their findings into a larger picture using theory. It also dares theorists to link their concepts to everyday occurrences and experiences.
The workshop will consist of presentations discussing ideas and challenges related to combining theory and research alongside a keynote presentation and an expert plenary panel. The keynote will be given by guest speaker Centenary Research Professor Deborah Lupton from the University of Canberra. Professor Lupton conducts cutting-edge multidisciplinary research specialising in digital health, big data cultures, surveillance, wearable technology, and risk. The panel will discuss how to integrate theory and research findings along with an interactive Q and A session.
