HIA Gateway Re-opening Conference

A really interesting, insightful and successful conference was held in Birmingham on 25th June 2008 to formally re-open and re-launch the HIA Gateway site.

The programme included a range of presentations which can be found at the HIA Gateway site.

The presentation were:

  1. It looks like it was an interesting event. I like Eva Elliot's presentation, which had some overlap with Gareth William's one at the HIA2007 Asia Pacific HIA Conference last year. I think the idea of how differing meanings are derived and change through HIAs warrants further attention - examining HIA from a constructivist epsiteme instead of the post-positivist stance that is often assumed.

    I'll have to look into this further and post on it in future.
