NoC’s Spring 2016 Hangout series
Mar 21, 2016

In Spring 2016 NoC’s Hangout series will take place. The NoC Hangout series is an opportunity for NoC members to participate in monthly learning calls led by the NoC researchers for the purpose of sharing, discussing, and collaborating on issues of common interest. Each learning call will feature a different research topic members of the NoC are currently working on. Hangout leaders will briefly introduce a topic of interest and facilitate a conversation with other NoC members. We anticipate the Hangouts will serve as an opportunity for knowledge exchange, help participants brainstorm around new areas of inquiry and exploration, and foster connections and collaboration within the NoC community.

Launched in 2012, the global Network of Internet & Society Centers (NoC) is a collaborative initiative among academic institutions with a focus on interdisciplinary research on the development, social impact, policy implications, and legal issues concerning the Internet. This collective aims to increase interoperability between participating centers in order to stimulate the creation of new cross-national, cross-disciplinary conversation, debate, teaching, learning, and engagement regarding the most pressing questions around new technologies, social change, and related policy and regulatory developments.
