Here you can find the program and links to podcasts or written transcripts and visual material from the seminars held as part of the SSSN 2015 program.
Each podcast episode features a film or media scholar presenting their cutting-edge research in the form of a short talk. The talk is followed by a Q&A session with another scholar in the field, who opens up the discussion to the audience present on the day. This podcast is made possible by the kind support of the School of the Arts & Media, UNSW Sydney.
