…and then the world

“where nothing we’ve actually seen has been mapped or outlined…”

phd update

with one comment

It’s been a while between updates, but most of that is due to spending time on the next major stage of the phd candidature: confirmation. In just over a week, I’ll be one year into the great work, which means I have a 45 minute seminar to present on my research (and also prepare an accompanying 60-80 page document for the seminar panel). The presentation itself is on 31 March, more details forthcoming. Once that’s out of the way, there will be more work-in-progress type posts; I’ve put in abstracts for a few conferences later in the year, and chosen to focus on particular sets of data being collected from the Australian and French political blogospheres, so there’ll be some information coming out of that hopefully.

One more immediate bit of news regards the paper I presented last year at the Ignite conference for QUT Creative Industries postgrads – ‘Which way up? Reading and drawing maps of the blogosphere’. I posted the slides and discussion of the conference here at the time, but not the paper itself. Soon after the conference, I received an email asking if I wanted to submit the paper for the proceedings journal, and it is now online at ejournalist along with several other papers from Ignite on a variety of Creative Industries theoretical and practice-based studies.

  1. Congratulations on being invited to submit a paper for publication! That doesn’t happen very frequently, and I trust that your paper was so good somebody just had to invite you to publish your work! 🙂
