Researching Everyday Childhoods: Time, Technology and Documentation in a Digital Age

Monday 29 January 16:00 until 19:00
Digital Humanities Lab, Silverstone, University of Sussex
Speaker: Professor Rachel Thomson, Dr Liam Berriman (both Sussex); Dr Sara Bragg (University of Brighton)

This event is hosted by the Centre for Innovation & Research in Childhood & Youth (CIRCY) and the Sussex Humanities Lab.

Digital Childhoods has been one of CIRCY's core research themes over the last five years. In this joint seminar with the Sussex Humanities Lab, three of the contributors to this theme - Professor Rachel Thomson, Dr Liam Berriman and Dr Sara Bragg - will launch their new book which explores new ideas about how we research children's everyday lives in a digital age.

The launch also coincides with the opening of a new 'Everyday Childhoods' digital archive based on the research informing the book and located in The Keep archive.

Through a series of short talks, the co-authors will share insights into the relationship between children's everyday lives and digital culture, and how this transforms ideas about research. There will also be opportunities to engage with the interactive online archive of the dataset.

Drinks and nibbles provided.
