Post-Screen Cultures/Practices

Journal of Media Practice and MeCCSA Practice Network Symposium

Friday 10 June 2016

A one-day practice/research symposium hosted by the School of Arts and Creative Industries at London South Bank University, with support from the Journal of Media Practice and the MeCCSA Practice network.

With the proliferation of mobile devices the presence of the screen in everyday life is ever more pervasive, personal and immersive. In the last five years, for example, the tablet has become the must-have device, with over half of UK households (54%) now owning one (Ofcom, 2015). Raised as 'screenagers', one in ten (11%) 3-4 year olds now have their own tablet as a pacifier, educational aid and entertainer (Ofcom, 2015). Our urban spaces offer up new forms of interaction as the numbers of screens multiply. Via the screen we navigate an evolving media and cultural landscape that is increasingly interactive, intuitive and always on. 

This symposium will focus on practice research and will feature papers, presentations of practice, screenings and demonstrations. A special issue of the Journal of Media Practice will be devoted to publishing a selection of practice research presented at the symposium.
