"Shifting Landscapes of Film and Media II: Questioning Legacies, Navigating Critique"
Venue: Istanbul Bilgi University, Istanbul, Turkey
8-10 September, 2007
In our 2006 conference, through contributions by prominent researchers and practitioners from Europe and beyond, we attempted to map the ever-changing landscapes of film and media in Europe. In 2007, the Shifting Landscapes conference will turn a critical eye to the realms of academic, institutional and industry practices with the hope of providing a discursive platform.
The aim of this year’s conference is to bring together film and media scholars as well as professionals (from film/media industry and from related institutions such as archives, research boards, museums, etc.) in order to encourage a collective effort of refreshing our thinking and understanding of contemporary production and consumption practices.
We invite contributions from researchers and professionals from a broad cross-section of related schools and disciplines. Suggested areas of inquiry include (but are
not limited to):
In line with the conference theme, papers addressing, for example, the following areas are particularly welcome: factors that determine the trajectory of film and media research and intellectual output; role of institutional and fiscal constraints (academic institutions; hierarchies; publishing industry; archives; research funding; etc); factors that determine the lifespan of a paradigm; power of curricular discourse; factors that shape artistic and industry practices; definitions of "cultural heritage" and power of such discourses; national and supranational media & communication policies; etc.
Deadline for abstract submissions: 10 July, 2007
