The QUT Digital Media Research Centre (DMRC) is one of CIESJ’s Tier 1 Research Centres. The DMRC conducts world-leading communication, media, and law research for a flourishing digital society. We help address local, national and global challenges at the forefront of digital transformation, and provide an ambitious, stimulating and supportive research culture for our staff, students, and partners.

The Digital Inclusion and Participation Program works in partnership with industry, government and community organisations, and uses innovative digital ethnographic and co-design methods to understand, intervene, and advocate for digital access and literacy as vital elements of social inclusion. We help equip citizens and consumers with the knowledge and skills to confidently, effectively and ethically navigate the increasingly complex digital media environment; and we deliver actionable new knowledge of the structural conditions and circumstances that impact on equitable and safe participation in the digital society.

Presenters will include Program leader Michael Dezuanni, Post Doctoral Research Fellow Amber Marshall, Senior Research Associate Kim Osman and HDR candidate Souleymane Coulibaly.
