The challenges of researching digital interaction: multimodality, embodiment, time and space
This seminar will discuss how embodiment, time and space are understood and researched within digital technologies (e.g. tangible, sensor, online, and mobile).
Concepts of embodiment will be explored through a focus on three themes: physical manipulation through tangible technologies; context-based interaction through mobile devices; and whole-body physical action through sensor-based technologies. The challenges of researching interaction in digital multimodal environments, notably online social media and mobile environments will also be discussed with a focus on exploring how digital technologies disrupt and reconfigure concepts of time, place and space and its effect on methods of data collection and analysis within social science.
