    Hello! I’ve sent a tweet asking this (most likely it was lost somewhere), but I’d like to know if there will be livestreaming or recording of the sessions in the conference. Thank you!

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    my name is Shola, a postgraduate research student in media and communication, with particular interest in new media and activism at the University of Hull, I was just wondering if there is a fee for registration or if the conference is open. I will be glad if you could kindly advice.
