New modes of critical writing are challenging conventional expectations of meaning and objectivity through narrative/counter-narrative, authorial presence, style, language, and rhetoric. This development is also present in the visual arts. The 'cinematic essay' is a form that can incorporate documentary practices, dramatised elements and experimental approaches. It may emphasise theme over plot and the discovery of narrative through a reflexive and self-critical approach to moving image production.
This conference forms part of a series that will examine the manner and structure of narration across a range of contemporary practices (e.g. art object, film, photography, criticism).
Keynote speakers include Martha Buskirk (Montserrat College of Art), Yve Lomax (Royal College of Art) and Jane Rendell (Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL), John Kear (University of Kent)
Proposals for 20 minute papers / presentations based on new research (with a view to publication) are now invited
