Reference Check:

A Co-production Residency for Developing Researchers

Residency dates: June 24 to July 21, 2007
Application deadline: April 9, 2007

The Banff New Media Institute (BNMI) invites researchers working with 
new media at the masters, doctorate or post-doctorate level to spend 
four weeks at The Banff Centre this summer.

Join BNMI for its first independent research-based Co-production 
Residency program, bringing together a select group of researchers. 
Individuals and small networks who are working with art and new media 
as a research strategy are invited to explore the broader social 
contexts of technology and digital culture.

Participants will be supported to pursue their self-directed 
research. They will also be given the opportunity to reflect on the 
field of new media and contemporary issues such as creative pluralism 
and multiple modes of knowledge production.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop their research with 
a peer group of ten participants and the support and mentorship of 
BNMI alumni and Reference Check peer advisors. These advisors will 
work with participants individually and as a group to help focus 
their ideas, and suggest methodologies, collaborative and 
multidisciplinary forms, and ways of enhancing their work and impact 
in the world.

Peer Advisors:

of new research projects, and their presentation in exhibitions, 
workshops, and other event formats.

studies of new technologies. Her research in sociology and
