In 2019 the SSSN ran its first Undergraduate Symposium featuring papers by Film Studies students at UNSW. In recognising the new and emerging voices of undergrad film students, the symposium explored the diverse approaches to screen studies across two sessions.
The discussions at the end of each session were chaired by the 2019 Undergraduate Representatives, Debbie Zhou and Katherine Zheng.
The event was held in Room 327, Robert Webster Building, UNSW at 4.30pm.
