This is part of the Democracy Futures Seminar Series, Thursday 13 August 2015.
Dr Zoë Sadokierski (site: http://zoesadokierski.com/Analogue-Bodies-publication-design) from the University of Technology Sydney’s School of Design describes how writing a regular column for The Conversation provides an opportunity to be the author, designer and editor of her own work. This level of autonomy means she can make arguments and explain her research using words, images and audio-visual material in ways that traditional academic publishing does not allow for. Publishing in this open, multimedia way makes her research practice more collaborative, allowing her to test ideas on a broad and diverse audience. It also opens a channel for researchers to share directly with the public outside the confines of expensive and exclusive academic journals.
