New media researchers to convene Sept. 18, 2009
Each fall the INMS reaches out to the growing numbers of students and faculty across campus interested in studying the impact of new communications technologies and techniques. The annual New Media Research @ UMN Conference is an opportunity to hear about their work and meet with researchers engaged with examining new media issues. This year's conference is on Friday, Sept. 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Coffman Memorial Union.
While billed as an official forum for presenting papers and posters, it is also an opportunity for graduate students, faculty and staff to discuss research in progress and issues concerning research, and to network with like-minded people. Participants at previous conferences have represented more than 25 University departments and units ranging from English and medicine to art and educational policy. At the event, INMS also promotes and builds its New Media Research Network Wiki, a repository for everything new media at the University: https://wiki.umn.edu/view/NewMediaResearchNetwork/
