As part of the Social Media Knowledge Exchange (SMKE), UCL, together with its project partners, is hosting a one day workshop on 6th June on the theme: Social Media and the Museum.

This is a one day workshop with talks from a range of academic and non-academic social media experts, targeted at doctoral students and early career researchers. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion as well as hands on practical experience. Workshop places are strictly limited and so early registration is necessary.
