Report on Panel at SLAS

Latamcyber are pleased to report on the success of their recent panel at the 50th Anniversary Conference of the Society for Latin American Studies that took place last month. Entitled ‘Latin American Digital Culture’, the panel brought together scholars from the US, UK and Latin America, and focussed on local expression and new media technologies, the representation of locality online, digital video, mobile media, the role of social media in urban protest movements, and the creation of local content.

Participants in the panel included Jason Gainous and Tricia Gray of the University of Louisville, Kevin Wagner of Florida Atlantic University, Tori Holmes of Queen’s University Belfast, Teresa Bean, Lisa Blackmore and Thea Pitman of the University of Leeds, Héctor Perea of the UNAM, Claire Taylor of the University of Liverpool, and Lien Tran of the University of Miami – a new addition to the panel.

Much lively discussion followed the papers, and was also continued on twitter via the conference hashtag #SLAS2014.

Latamcyber really enjoyed sharing ideas with everyone on the panel and in the audience, and is looking forward to more events in the future.
