Interactive Futures: Young People’s Mediated Lives in the Asia Pacific and Beyond. A conference hosted by the Consortium for Youth, Generations and Culture, Sociology, Monash University, the Griffith Centre for Cultural Research, Griffith University and support from the Monash Asia Institute.

This conference explores young people’s engagement with new modes of mediated communication, self‐expression and culture‐making across the Asia Pacific and beyond. It will map young people’s mediated lives in the region, consider implications for citizenship, ethics, political & cultural agency and social bonds, and generate debate about the ways emplacement, embodiment, and location shape youth access to and practices with media—new and old, virtual and material.

When: Monday 1st & Tuesday 2nd December, 2014
Where: Monash University Caulfield Campus, Melbourne
Paper proposals due: Friday June 13th, 2014
