Tue Feb 04 02:45:22 GMT 2014

Special Conference Issue of Networking Knowledge

The latest issue of Networking Knowledge, the journal of MeCCSA's Postgraduate Network, is now available online. Drawing on papers delivered at the network's 2013 conference at the University of East Anglia, it showcases the richness and diversity represented in the work of up and coming researchers in MeCCSA's various subject areas. The articles cover a huge range of topics, disciplines and methodological approaches, from the archival and historical, to contemporary industrial practices, to revisionary textual analysis. At the same time the issue presents a fascinatingly interconnected set of questions and arguments, truly living up to the journal's name.
