Geomedia 2021 will take place east of Cologne in downtown Siegen, a lovely, off-the-beaten path industrial hub with a thriving university of over 20,000 students. The Locating Media Graduate School (2012-2021) is a German Research Foundation-funded interdisciplinary programme that researches historical and current media practices ‘in motion’ and ‘in situ’ and engages scholars with interests in locational and situational analyses and the development of new methods for the analysis and design of mobile digital media.
The conference website is still a work in progress and will be updated both in terms of content and design over the next weeks.
