Event description
In 2021 we wish to ask hard questions about the assumptions and the scope of study that have hitherto grounded the field of Persona Studies.

About this event

  • What is persona studies? What should persona studies be?
  • How can the field be as inclusive and diverse as possible?
  • What are possible futures for persona studies research and scholarship?

In 2021 we wish to ask hard questions about the assumptions and the scope of study that have hitherto grounded the field. We see this as a crucial opportunity to destabilise and to interrogate what we do and why we do it, to make space for new voices and areas of study, and to actively facilitate inclusive scholarship.

Participation in this online conference is in two parts

  1. Themed playlists made up of 10 minute research presentations, accompanied by extended abstracts and author bios, will be circulated in a program to registered presenters and other participants for viewing from 5 July.
  2. Selected presenters will then be invited to participate in a webinar with others from their playlist or theme. The webinar will be broadcast live on Zoom (links to be circulated prior to the day) and be equivalent to a panel and Q&A discussion. Those watching the livestream will be able to ask questions, through the webinar chair, both before and during the panel. The webinars will be crucial opportunities to discuss, develop, and grow our work. These webinars will run on 16 July, 23 July, 30 July, and 6 August, with rotating timing to accommodate international participation.

The registration process provides separate tickets to each of the four days when webinars will run, as well as for the conference opening date of 5 July. If you are in a position to support the conference by paying the AU$50 registration fee, please only do so ONCE - select the free/unwaged option for all subsequent tickets.
