About the CDCS Workshop Series

The Center on Digital Culture and Society's Workshop Series features works in progress from digital media studies scholars. CDCS Workshops offer relatively informal, collective spaces for discussion, collaboration, and feedback, with the goal of nurturing qualitative research on digital media and communication technologies. Workshop speakers present new projects at varying stages of development and solicit feedback and questions from workshop attendees. Attendees who RSVP receive copies of the material to be workshopped in advance of the session.
