Topic: 'Process as product: Using social media in academic research strategies'

Academic researchers have many useful social media platforms vying for their time and attention; choosing which platform to use to share what and when can be overwhelming and exhausting. In this talk MARGIE BORSCHKE will ask ”Can you turn your research process into a product?” The question reminds scholars that they're already doing the work and considers different approaches to selectively making such processes visible for maximum impact. This talk will draw on Margie's research on the aesthetics of online circulation and expression and offer some practical advice for creating a social media strategy for independent scholars.   

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

MARGIE BORSCHKE is a Senior Lecturer in Journalism and Media and Postgraduate Coursework Director for the department of Media, Music Communication and Cultural Studies at Macquarie University. She is the author of This is Not a Remix: Piracy, Authenticity and Popular Music (Bloomsbury Academic, 2017). Her research addresses reproduction, circulation and distribution as cultural practices, with an emphasis on the aesthetics of circulation, the materiality of networked media, and the rhetorical dimensions of Internet culture. Her recent work on cloud-based computing, streaming technologies, and analog media revivals uses a media historical approach to address pressing contemporary questions about the social impact of network technologies and how we understand change and innovation. An interest in copies and copying underpins much of her work. Current and recent collaborations include projects on new media gatekeeping practices and technologies, social media pedagogies, post-piracy practices, data trails and traces, scholarly networks, the pleasures of the copy, and media histories of the environment and natural world.

Dr. Borschke teaches undergraduate and postgraduate units in media studies and journalism including units on network culture and data journalism. http://www.margieborschke.com
