Selina will talk about her research agenda to date, which explores the various difficulties and tensions of designing interactive systems in the context of death and digital loss online. For example, the diversity of people's reactions and practices to death, which impact on how designers can support bereavement within interactive systems.
Venue: Lecture Theatre 1, Furness College
(Building 42a on the campus map)

If you drive to the University, visitor parking areas are clearly indicated and are no more than 50-100m from a building.

Alternatively, those who have registered with our group can join us remotely via WebEx video conferencing. Full details can be found on the right of this page.
We make use of a video conferencing application called WebEx.
This software can run as a small installation on your computer, (like Skype), or can run as a 'script' within your web browser, provided that your browser is set to run active scripts. The latter option is very helpful for those who are unable to install software on their computer because admin rights have been removed.
