CMCI Emerging Voices 2019: “Beyond Disciplines”
We welcome you all to King’s CMCI Emerging Voices 2019 Conference. We are excited to bring you a day of stimulating discussions for the 6th year. This year, we will have a two-day conference from Thursday, 6th June 2019 to Friday, 7th June 2019 at Bush House, former headquarters of the BBC World Service (1940-2012) and now part of King’s College London. We could not imagine a better venue to have this year’s conference, CMCI Emerging Voices 2019: “Beyond Disciplines.”
A confirmed Keynote Speaker for this year’s conference is Professor Hongwei Bao from The University of Nottingham, with more speakers to be announced shortly.
CALL FOR PAPERS
This year’s conference celebrates new and emerging directions in the research of culture, media and creative industries that challenge how we understand and see technological, environmental, political, institutional and aesthetic developments that are shaping our cultural landscape.
In particular, we pose the question: how does your current research contribute to your field? Whether it is challenging how we think about existing structures, shaping how disciplines intersect through research or revisiting established ideas; the aim of Emerging Voices is to present works that contribute to the research of CMCI in new ways. We are creating a space in which multi- and interdisciplinary research is produced, discussed and valued.
