Confirmed Keynote speakers: Professor Griselda Pollock and Professor Sander Gilman
(7 JUNE 2012)
This one-day conference will focus on visual and textual images produced within, and in relation to, the circumstances of the Israel-Palestine struggle. Its aim is to explore and challenge a range of current research approaches to cinematic, documentary, literary, fine art and other media images. It will look into academic studies and patterns of interpretation which tend to solidify exclusive perceptions of politicised images.
Applicants must propose new and original research; selected speakers may be given the opportunity to extend their papers, and prepare them for academic publication – more details about it will be provided at a future date. All proposals will be read by the Advisory Board. Successful applications will be allotted 20 minutes to present their papers, followed by ten minutes for questions. Researchers, lecturers, practitioners and postgraduate students are all encouraged to apply.
