Multimodal Digital Publishing

20th to 21st May 2021 | Online Workshop | AG Medien | DGSKA

The use of digital devices has become ubiquitous in ethnographic research, generating new forms and formats of media as ethnographic material. Almost simultaneously, the rapid progress of digitalization has expanded the possibilities to publish the outcomes of anthropological studies. Though a major part of publications is still text-based and published in books or printed journals, a significant increase of innovative digital publishing formats can be observed such as blogs, podcasts/videocasts, audio/video essays, web-applications, profiles on social media platforms, etc. These multimodal forms of publishing not only allow for a more experimental use of audio-visual media – (moving) images and sounds can be (re)combined with texts in a way that analogue forms of publishing can hardly provide – but they can also influence and transform ethnographic research in terms of methodology as well as epistemology and knowledge production.

At the workshop and in a subsequent series of events we want to discuss a broad variety of questions related to the digitalization of academic as well as artistic research.
