2020 Undergraduate Symposium

In 2020 the SSSN ran its second Undergraduate Symposium featuring papers by Film Studies students at UNSW and Sydney University. In recognising the new and emerging voices of undergrad film students, the symposium explored the diverse approaches to screen studies across six five-minute papers on Zoom.

The discussions after each paper were chaired by the 2020 Undergraduate Representatives, Ashleigh Suoh and Victor Zhou.

The event was held on Zoom from 5.30-7pm.
