Revisioning the Screen
2020 has brought unprecedented challenges on a global scale. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate and substantial impact upon the way we work and socialise. In the midst of such a crisis, the renewal of the Black Lives Matter movement in the USA and its subsequent global expansion has further brought to the fore conversations around human rights, freedoms, and the call for increased diversity. These events have already had noticeable impact upon both screen industries and screen studies in multi-faceted ways. Notably, they have renewed discussions around both the value and precarity of the arts in times of crisis.
Across two days, experts in screen theory and screen practice from around the world will present on a number of topics, including:
- Steaming Media
- Screen Production Research and Audio-Visual Essays
- Tales of Love and Hate: The Night of the Hunter and First Reformed
- COVID-19 and Online Media
- Rethinking Family
- Impact of COVID-19 on Screen Production and Research
- Celebrities in Asian Media
- Gender and Film
- Framing Performance
- Television, Race and COVID-19
- Pedagogical Practice and COVID-19
Karina Aveyard will also present a special In Memoriam for Professor Tom O’Regan
With so much on offer Dial S for Screen Studies is a must for anyone who has an interest in screen practice and research.
