Research Workshops and Publications

This publication is about Machine Research – research on machines, research with machines, and research as a machine.

The current issue of A Peer-reviewed Journal About Post-digital Research (Volume 4 issue 1) is now online. This issue examines the implications of datafication for research. It addresses the thematic framework of the 2015 transmediale festival “Capture All” as a research topic: “to investigate and propose actions that push against the limits of today’s pervasive quantification of life, work and play”, as the call explains. Indeed, to what extent does data “capture all” – even research? 

The current issue of A Peer-reviewed Journal About Post-digital Research (Volume 3 issue 1) is now online. It addresses the messy and paradoxical condition of art and media after digital technology revolutions and critically reflects on the term "post-digital". 

Addressing Post-digital Research, the conference/workshop relates to the artistic call of transmediale 2014, and asks how to formulate research questions, research methods, and research dissemination in the light of an "afterglow" of the digital revolution. Venue: Kunsthal Aarhus, J.M. Mørksgade 13, Aarhus, Denmark, organisers: Aarhus University & reSource for transmedial culture Berlin/transmediale.

The conference and workshop Researching BWPWAP – referring to the cancellation of Pluto’s planetary status in 2006, BWPWAP (Back When Pluto Was a Planet), the 2013 edition of the transmediale festival – took place in November 2012 in Lüneburg, Germany, organised jointly by Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Aarhus University and the reSource transmedial culture/transmediale.

Have a look at the final programme for the International Research Conference and PhD Workshop: Researching BWPWAP, that will take place at Leuphana University of Lüneburg (Germany) bringing together a wide group of researchers and PhD students. The workshop is planned on 22-24 November 2012 and it is closed to participants selected via a public call.

World of the News – The world’s greatest peer-reviewed newspaper of in/compatible research presents cutting edge in/compatible research in an accessible FREE tabloid format. The newspaper partly addresses academia’s increasing demand for publication of academic peer-reviewed journal articles. Perhaps researchers need new visions of how to produce and consume research?
