Event Details

Ed Res would like to welcome you to an occasional series of in person, informal lunchtime chats around different ideas and issues in educational research

We call these “What is….?” chats because each session will focus on a member of Ed Res (or our wider community) offering to discuss something they are passionate about with a group of interested colleagues. We welcome people who know nothing about the topic, but are just curious to find out – “What is…?”

Bring your lunch, your Tupperware and your tartan thermos! Though teas and coffees will be provided.

In the fourth of our ‘What is….’ series, Nataša Lacković will introduce and discuss the concept of postdigital (education, literacy, communication).

Postdigital: a term that sucks but is useful. This is how Florian Cranmer and Petar Jandrić titled their article around the postdigital, marking the popularisation of the term through Cranmer’s work and a remarkable explosion of postdigital scholarship through the journal Postdigital Science and Education, set up by Jandrić as Editor-in-Chief in 2019. Indeed, the concept may raise eyebrows: Do we really need one more “post” thing?

In this lunch meeting, Nataša will comment on many faces of the postdigital and how it captures the fuzzy nature of new media communication and creation, why it may be useful, focusing on postdigital literacies and (maybe) GenAI. During the session, you will have opportunities to share your ideas, experiences and criticism of the “postdigital”. We hope to see you there!”
