#ScreenTime 2015

The graduate students of Boston University’s Division of Emerging Media Studies invite you to their inaugural Conference on Emerging Media.

Emerging media platforms permeate almost every aspect of our lives including work, learning, public engagement, governance, human development, and community interaction. The implications for how these advancing technologies will both augment and challenge our lives are enormous – yet the study of this field is still in its infancy. This conference will explore the fascinating dimensions of the unique (and still evolving) phenomena of individual and collective experiences with emerging media platforms. The conference is free of charge to both presenters and attendees. This conference is aimed at graduate students to showcase their research and as an opportunity to network with peers.
