Blog for the Gender and Digital Culture project, a study exploring the impact of digital media and communications on (gendered) relationships and interactions
Following the amazing response that we received for our recent survey, The Online Professional, we at the Gender and Digital Culture team will be running our first event on Friday the 8th of November from 2pm to 5pm. The event itself will be hosted (and linked simultaneously between) the University of Southampton and the University of York, but we will also be livestreaming via Google+ and Youtube.
The event will discuss the implications and risks of the professional use of digital media, looking at how this most ubiquitous aspect of modern working life (online communication) profoundly affects our everyday professional engagements – sometimes in deeply harmful ways.
We would like you to join us, either in person or via livestream, to:
The event will take place at the following locations:

We will also be monitoring our Twitter account throughout the event to allow those watching the livestream to participate in the discussion and ask questions. Please follow us @GenderDC and tweet us during the event with your questions and input.
The programme will begin with a presentation by Dr Sara Perry of the University of York, and with introductions by Lucy Shipley and Jim Osborne of the University of Southampton, followed by an informal discussion between both sites, a review of existing institutional policies, a series of break-out sessions, ending in a wine reception at both York and Southampton.
We would be absolutely delighted if you could attend the event, and hope very much to see you there – in person or via social media through Twitter or Google Plus or YouTube. Your experiences and insights are essential to the success of our project and to developing guidance and support for other professionals in academia and beyond.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Lucy Shipley, Jim Osborne and Sara Perry
