Early bird registration is now open for 13th Languages & the Media Conference. This year’s theme is Riding the Wave. I had the privilege to attend the 12th one, last year in Berlin. Honestly, my primary goal was to meet some of my remote employers. Because as an independent contractor, emailing is the only way of communication for me. It would be nice to meet my employers in person. I achieved this goal but it was also impressive to see that so many academics are involved in audiovisual industry. Had the chance to listen to many interesting speakers, academics and researchers. Became aware of AV related institutions. Look forward to December 2020!
