Due to ongoing travel and health concerns related to the global outbreak of COVID-19, we have made the decision to transition the Center on Digital Culture and Society’s April 3 Launch Symposium to an entirely digital event. This was a difficult decision to make, but the health and safety of our panelists and attendees are of the utmost importance to us.
While we were looking forward to convening in person, as a digital-focused research center, we are excited to spearhead a digital symposium format. The move to a virtual event allows more people from around the world to learn from our panelists’ insights on the future of digital media research. It also creates new opportunities for engaging remotely with speakers and their ideas.
Logistical details for the digital symposium are forthcoming. Please register for the event to receive information on accessing the digital symposium sessions.
We thank you for your understanding and we hold all those coping with the effects of this global crisis in our thoughts. We hope you’ll join us in making our digital symposium a success and look forward to connecting with you online.
