Right now, I would love to be a Ph.d. student in the DREAM research consortium, since John Hartley will be giving a speak about Digital content creation: educational options and challenges on the second international DREAM conference (a conference for Ph.D students only).
John Hartley is the keynote speaker on the DREAM conference: Digital Content Creation: Creativity, Competence, Critique. I just love the title: Digital-Content-Creation. That is exactly what digital storytelling is about. To create content on computers or other digital devices, to obtain digital competences and to unfold a sceptical view on media content, publisher and consumers.
John Hartley is a well-reputed professor from the Queensland University of Technology. He is among the pioneers of media and cultural studies, and have published 16 books about how new media make impact on the cultural and historical institutions in our society.
The conference is to be held the 18-20 September 2008, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.
