Masterclass on Media and History - Organised by the International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST)
Friday January 15, 2010
At British Universities Film and Video Council (BUFVC)
77 Wells St., London (Oxford Circus underground station).
Are you a graduate or doctoral student, researcher, or young professional currently working on a project in which you engage issues concerning historical film, radio or television footage or media history? Do you have questions about historiographical issues, media history or doing archival research? Are you interested in presenting your project to a small group of experts and peers? Then this master-class of the International Association for Media and History may be just what you are looking for. Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. Senior members of IAMHIST will engage with your paper and discuss sources and strategies for developing the project.
The day is designed to be a networking event for emerging scholars and media professionals and an opportunity to engage with leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. There is no charge for attendance and lunch is included.
To apply for this event, send a 1-paragraph proposal of your project and a one paragraph bio to IAMIST president Nick Cull Deadline is December 15th 2009.
