SAGT 2008

Image from Sigur Ros Tour Diary

While in "conversation" with a delegate last night, I reflected on the fact that I needed to do rather a lot on my presentation for SAGT 2008. So decided to give it a quick half an hour...

Energised by an old tape of Andy Cutting that I got out of the loft earlier, here are some sketches of what I will present (SPOILER WARNING: if you're coming to my session, go and look at the kittens instead...)

The theme is GEOGRAPHY and the MEDIA.
Plan to include a range of POPULAR CULTURAL REFERENCES, and try and link in with the idea of LIVING GEOGRAPHY in its wider sense.

You will need some TOOLS to make use of the new Geography libraries that are out there...

a) AUDACITY: sound editing and allows you to save as MP3 with an additional LAME plugin
b) FLICKR: a free membership allows you to host 200 images
c) SNIPPY: allows the saving of sections of screenshots / webpages

Will be looking at the following MEDIA:
  • TV
  • FILM
  • RADIO
  • BOOKS
  • NEWSPAPERS / MAGAZINES: including front pages...
  • BLOGS
  • ADVERTISING / SOCIAL MEDIA - check out OSOCIO
  • PACKAGING
  • CARTOONS
A final angle will be a look at media literacy, and the new social media...
