Members of the DLAC network have put together a panel which will be presenting at the 52nd Annual Conference of the Society for Latin American Studies 2016. Entitled ‘Latin American Digital Culture : Repositioning the Field’, the panel brings the perspectives of scholars and practitioners working within the realm of digital culture in a Latin American context. The panel engages with the central notion of ‘building bridges’ and ‘repositioning’ by exploring how digital technologies are changing the shape of our research as Latin Americanists, in terms of our objects of study, our methodological approaches, and our practice-based research. Particular issues covered in the panel include digital culture in the urban periphery, blogs and fotologs, data poetics, discourses of virality, and digital genres.
The conference will take place at the University of Liverpool, 7-8 April 2016, and further details, including the full conference programme, are available at: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/modern-languages-and-cultures/slas-annual-conference-2016/
