A one-day mini conference titled Being Human: How Hidden Narratives Challenge Authority has been organised by postgraduate research students at the University of Gloucestershire on 11th July 2017. The day will include two keynote speakers, nine short presentations from researchers and opportunities for questions.
In this short video, you can listen to Dr David Webster in conversation with one of the conference organisers, discussing his introductory talk, The Curious Case of Social Media. His presentation will consider the discourses around social media, make comparisons with traditional journalistic approaches and assess the potential of social media to be subverted and appropriated by those in power. Other talks in the programme will reflect contributors’ interest in how we challenge authority powerfully and constructively.
Tickets for the conference are still available free of charge from Eventbrite, and include refreshments and lunch.
