Join us for our regular series of DERC Chats, an informal opportunity to hear what people in the centre and our broader research community are working on.
We’ll hear three lightening talks followed by discussion over drinks and snacks.
This time we’ll hear from Ramon Lobato on researching streaming television services and software; Grace McQuilten on her current ARC Discovery Project, ‘Art based social enterprise and marginalised young people’; and Samuel Kininmonth on the challenges of digital methods.
Ramon Lobato is Senior Research Fellow in the School of Media and Communication. A media industries scholar, Ramon studies digital distribution networks and how they structure access, discovery and audience experience. In this presentation Ramon will speak about two current projects exploring the impact of subscription video-on-demand services and smart TV use in Australia.
Grace McQuilten is a Senior Lecturer in Art History and Theory, and Leader of the Contemporary Art and Social Transformation Research Group in the School of Art. She is an art historian, curator and artist with expertise in contemporary art and design, public art, social practice, social enterprise and community development.
Samuel Kininmonth is a PhD Candidate in the Technology, Communication and Policy (TCP) Lab within the Digital Ethnography Research Centre at RMIT University. His research examines the impacts of media automation, especially around platforms and infrastructures of digital advertising such as programmatic.
