Beyond Digital

As part of the AHRC Tenth Anniversary celebrations the School of Creative Arts and TechnologiesUlster University Magee will host a debate examining the idea that we have reached a point in the development of contemporary technologies where the term ‘digital’ has failed to have any real meaning and indeed where continued use of the term may actually be counter-productive. So-called digital practice is now almost entirely and unconsciously embedded in our everyday experience.  Today’s reality is now such that digital technologies are no longer emerging but have in fact emerged, and so we need to accept this post-digital position. So, what does it mean to live, learn, create, research or anything else in the post-digital context? This AHRC tenth anniversary debate will address these questions and is organised by the Research Centre for Creative Technologies (RCCT), Ulster University, Magee campus, Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

The event will take place in two cities, simultaneously streamed live from/to both locations.

The keynote speakers are:

Múirne Laffan, Managing Director, RTÉ Digital (Derry venue)

Bill Thompson, Head of Partnership Development, BBC (London venue)

The events will be chaired by Professor Paul Moore, Director of the Research Centre for Creative Technologies and Head of the School of Creative Arts and Technologies, Ulster University (Derry venue) and Anthony Lilley OBE, Professor of Creative Industries, Ulster University, AHRC Council Member, Associate for Arts and Digital, King’s Cultural Institute (London venue).
