Graduate Student Symposium Now Accepting Submissions

The University of Oregon’s second annual Data/Media/Digital Graduate Student Symposium is now accepting submissions for 15-minute presentations on data/media/digital studies. The symposium showcases work at every stage of development, providing graduate students with an opportunity to present both works-in-progress and fully developed dissertations. Presentations can be based on any digital or media studies project (e.g. website, podcast series, mapping project, study of tweets, etc.), as long as the work specifies clear scholarly or pedagogical goals and articulates how the design and/or argument of the project addresses those goals. 

The symposium hopes to build an interdepartmental community over the course of this one-day event by including new work from graduates across campus and promoting/sustaining cross-disciplinary conversations. If you have a project that you’d like to showcase during this event, please consider submitting your proposal per the guidelines below.

  • Student name
