1pm Wed 6 March 2013: Reading into the future; the rise of total fiction? Stella Wisdom, The British Library

Stella blogged about her visit here.

Stella Wisdom, a Digital Curator at the British Library, will discuss her views on how we will be reading in 2025; looking at trends and predictions for technology developments, changes in media consumption behaviour and the implications for our current understanding of reading, game playing and film watching all as separate, distinct activities.

Stella Wisdom is currently a Digital Curator at the British Library; her professional interests are diverse and include social media, digitisation, library and information history, webarchiving, crowdsourcing, videogame culture and preservation.

Stella joined the British Library in 2006 and before relocating to London in 2010, she managed Collection Storage at the British Library's site at Boston Spa in Yorkshire. Stella has also previously worked at the Library and Information Statistics Unit based at Loughborough University, the Warburg Institute Library and the National Library of Scotland.

Stella has a BA joint honours in Art History and Information and Library Studies from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, an MA in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester and she is a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (MCLIP). In 2006 Stella won the CILIP/Online Information Personal Development Award.

How TDC lunchtimes work

TDC Lunchtimes offer an opportunity to mix informally with colleagues from across the university. There is always a pot of tea on the go so why not bring your sandwiches and enjoy lunch with us? This term we meet every Wednesday for an hour from 1pm-2pm. There will be a talk or video or workshop for about 30 minutes, then the rest of the time will be taken up with conversation and networking around the teapot.

The TDC is based in the old surgery behind Fletcher building, No.36 on the Campus Map. Access is by staff card, or ring the doorbell.
