Researching Contemporary Culture is a series of summer workshops for postgraduate and early career researchers. It is organised by Dr Zara Dinnen (University of Birmingham) and Dr Tony Venezia (Birkbeck, University of London), conveners of the Contemporary Fiction Seminar. Researching Contemporary Culture is supported by an AHRC Collaborative Skills Award; with additional support from the University of Birmingham, Birkbeck, University of London, and the Institute of English Studies, University of London.

Researching Contemporary Culture aims to help researchers in the field address an array of issues that currently define the study of contemporary culture by offering workshops and presentations on: developing the impact of research through exhibition, curation, and the championing of particular artists’/directors’/authors’ work; producing research for open access publications; balancing public engagement and research needs; using online participatory culture as a research tool; conducting sustainable research with ephemeral data.
