Connected Life 2016: Collective Action & The Internet

20th June 2016 - 21st June 2016

£48

Connected Life 2016 is a two-day student-run conference dedicated to sparking exchange between disciplines and showcasing emerging Internet research. Bringing together participants from across the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences, Connected Life seeks to foster collaborations within and beyond Oxford in pursuit of an enhanced understanding of the Internet and its multifaceted effects.

Connected Life is held at the Faculty of Classics on day 1 and Balliol College on day 2 (University of Oxford), and supported by the Balliol Interdisciplinary Institute and the ESRC.

BANNER2

The theme for this year is Collective Action and the Internet. The Conference explores how the Internet affects collective action; both in big social movements, such as the Arab Spring and the Hong Kong Protests, and in more everyday forms of collaboration. Though other social science research relating to the Internet is most welcome as well

Conference programme is here.
