Lectures at OII

Oxford Internet Institute (OII) blog introduced new student group photos and pages (pages to be updated), as the 2009/10 generation of DPhils settled in. Soon new bio pages will be posted at OII web site as well as blogs of us who want to maintain one, and I will inform you about the URLs.

This week we have two interesting professors visiting OII. Manuel Castells, OII Visiting Professor of Internet Studies, Research Professor, Open University of Catalonia, this Thursday, 22 October 2009, 4.30pm at Oxford University Press. Prof. Castells will give a lecture on The crisis of global capitalism: towards a new economic culture. More about this lecture here.

Another visit is professors’ Duncan Watts, principal research scientist at Yahoo! Research and professor of sociology at Columbia University. This lecture is set up for this Friday, 23 October 2009, 4pm, at Said Business School, and is more affiliated with my research: Using the Web to do Social Science.

Updates about future events at the Institute you can follow on my Twitter stream, and I’m looking forward to hear and meet with super interesting folks who are visiting Oxford this autumn/winter, sharing the ideas and knowledge and interacting.
