Kule Connect Cafés:
Digital Synergies
Society, Methods, Literacies

Connect and discover mutual research interests and resources in pursuit of developing cross-disciplinary research and innovative educational opportunities at the junctures between digital society, methods, and literacies. Research interests might include, for example, big data, privacy and ethics; cultural representations and social implications of ubiquitous artificial intelligence; cyberarts and e-literatures; digital narratives, games and gambling; VR/AR/MR across arts, humanities and social sciences; digital humanities concerns and methods; digital feminisms; corpora and data science methods; media and algorithmic literacies; and education in a robotified society.

Learn more about and help us define how the Faculty of Arts’ Signature Area, “Digital Synergies,” might support your future research collaborations, trajectories, and grant writing activities, and how your research might in turn contribute to Digital Synergies’ future growth at the University of Alberta and beyond. All scholars are welcome!

When: Friday, February 15th, 12:00 pm
Where: Arts Lounge, Arts & Convocation Hall (main floor)

Following a general introduction to the Faculty of Arts Signature Area and its main goals, participants will be invited to flash-present their current research and brainstorm possible future areas of collaboration in small workshop groups.

Please RSVP at or by sending one slide that represents your current research and that you may speak to for max. 1 minute during the event. Deadline: Web, Feb 13th.
If you can’t make it to the cafe but would like to receive updates about the outcome of the event and the Digital Synergies signature area, please also use the above RSVP link so we can connect with you later.

Light refreshments will be provided.

About the Kule Connect Cafés
The Kule Connect Cafés is a new informal networking event series open to all U of A faculty, post-docs and grad students in the social sciences, humanities and fine arts to connect and discover mutual research interests and resources across the University of Alberta in pursuit of developing cross-disciplinary research teams. It is a casual forum for research ideas at an early stage of formulation. No formal program, and no 'outcomes' are required!

To propose a theme for future cafés, email or drop by our office at 337 Arts & Convocation Hall (themes should be broad enough, e.g. energy and climate change, migration and refugees, medical humanities, indigenous languages etc.).
