The eagle-eyed amongst our readers will have noticed that our research collaboration has undergone a name change and a re-vamp over the summer, with new images to match.
Our old name, the Latin American Cyberculture Project, has been updated to the Digital Latin American Cultures Network, to reflect more accurately what we do. Our network researches the cultural dimensions of new media in Latin America, and includes analysis of digital cultural products such as blogs, apps, videogames, works of net.art, e-poetry or hypermedia novels, as well as more ethnographic study of the communities and practices that are generated by and through the use of new media in the region.
You will also find that although our Twitter handle remains as @latamcyber, our name on Twitter is now DLAC Network. You can continue to read our latest tweets by following us on Twitter, or via our Twitter feed.
We’ve also now got a Facebook page where we circulate information about our activities, plus lots of other related events, publications, and more. We welcome contributions of relevant material from any of our readers, although note that all posts will be reviewed prior to publication.
We hope that you like our re-vamp, and that our new presence on Facebook will allow our readers more opportunities to share ideas and collaborate with us.
