What is the status of a blog? What use is it to those engaged in arts and humanities research and practice? Should blogs be seen as legitimate teaching, research and outreach tools? This symposium, the follow-up to last year's successful 'Blogging the Humanities' event, will consist of two sessions and a roundtable, in which speakers who have used blogging in a variety of contexts will give their perspectives and respond to questions. There will be plenty of time for discussion. The event is open to all and we especially encourage non-academic members of the blogosphere, blogging sceptics and aspiring bloggers to attend.
You can check out the programme and register for the symposium online at http://puesoccurrences.wordpress.com/blogging-the-humanities/. There will be a small attendance fee of €10 to cover the cost of lunch. Whether you are a current or potential blogger, a reader, a sceptic or otherwise, we look forward to seeing to you there!
