Dial S for Screen Studies

November 28th and 29th 2019
Level 3 Robert Webster Building UNSW, Sydney Australia

In 2019 we have invited presenters to speak to one of two streams: Current Approaches to Screen Theory and Futures of Screen-based Creative Practice.

Across two days, experts in screen theory and screen practice from across Australia will present on a number of topics, including:

  • Cinemas of national past
  • The gaze
  • Exhibition and festivals
  • Genre and cinema: neon-noir, sci-fi and the western
  • Auteurs
  • Narratives of heroes and villains
  • Female filmmaking and transnational cinemas
  • Performance and celebrity, and
  • Two panels on the futures of screen-based creative practice

In addition to these highly engaging panels, there will a number of workshops on:

  • Animation and history
  • Screenwriting
  • Cognitive media theory, and
  • Futurity: theories of screen’s future, the future of screen theory and practice

We are also very fortunate to have Professor Sue Turnbull from the University of Wollongong presenting a keynote on:

‘This is Your Worst Nightmare’: Reimagining Screen Entertainment and the Practice of Audiencing

With so much on offer Dial S for Screen Studies is a must for anyone who has an interest in screen practice and research.
