Abstract or Description:

A one-day symposium on the role of digital communication technologies and data for humanitarian practice

Digital communication technologies and data are claimed to have catalyzed a new era of humanitarianism ‘in a networked age’ (UNOCHA, 2012). Yet, systematic evidence about the consequences of digital technologies for humanitarian practice remains scarce. The aim of the symposium was to advance the critical inquiry about humanitarian practice and digital developments. This one-day event brought together practitioners from the humanitarian field and researchers in the fields of Anthropology, Computing, Design, Media and Communications, Sociology and Visual Studies in order to develop a multisectoral and multidisciplinary dialogue.

The symposium included screenings of documentaries by Goldsmiths staff as well as a parallel exhibition of installations and interactive platforms in the Atrium of the Professor Stuart Hall Building (PSH).

The event was sponsored by the Digital Worldmaking and Migration/ Mobilities / Displacements College research streams.
