Honours student wins place in a workshop on video analysis in Hong Kong University

One of our Honours students, Rebecca Kidson (pictured), has been selected to attend a two-day international workshop on video analysis at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The workshop will be held at the end of August this year and ten places were offered to students from around the world interested in postgraduate study relating to the use of video analysis in sociology. Rebecca is the only attendee from New Zealand, joining nine other students from Canada, France, Germany, Korea, Russia, and the UK.

The workshop is hosted by CUHK’s Video Analysis, Science, and Technology (VAST) Research Group and will introduce the methodology followed by an opportunity for participants to learn more about the group’s work and to workshop proposals for their own research in the field. Rebecca is currently undertaking research involving video analysis as part of her Honours study, relating to the use of beverages in face-to-face interaction at networking events.
