Examining the diverse range of research within the MPhil/PhD school of communication, the one day symposium brought together students to discuss approaches to telling, writing and translating practises. Chaired by Teal Triggs, presentations from Dr Yiyun Kang, David Benque and Dr Emily Richardson focused on projection mapping, algorithmic ideas of the future and moving image translations. All three speakers contributed to the conversation inspiring debates around ethics and critical thinking. In the afternoon I sat on panel two, chaired by Tom Simmons, where we discussed process and experience, exploring each other viewpoints on our own research design. The symposium generated lots of energy with students feeding into each others conversations. Presenting to a larger audience, as part of a panel, felt far more interactive than previous presentations provided a way to capture data with regards peers views on each other approaches to research frameworks.
