IAMHIST master class on Media and History
Date: Friday January 10th 2014.
Location: LUCA School of Arts, Brussels, Belgium.
Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doc, or young professional currently working on a project in which you engage issues concerning historical film, radio or television or issues in media history? Are you interested in presenting your project to a small group of experts and peers? Then this master-class of the International Association for Media and History may be just what you are looking for. Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. Senior members of IAMHIST will engage with your paper and discuss sources and strategies for developing the project.
The day is designed to be a networking event for emerging scholars and media professionals and an opportunity to engage with leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. There is no charge for attendance and lunch is included.
To apply for this event, send a 1-paragraph proposal of your project and a one paragraph bio to IAMIST president Nick Cull <cull @ usc.edu> and to IAMHIST secretary-general Leen Engelen <Leen.engelen @ soc.kuleuven.be>. Deadline is November 20th 2013.
IAMHIST organizes bi-annual conferences and publishes the “Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television”, which examines the history of audio-visual media and its impact on political, social and cultural developments. To find out more about IAMHIST, visit us on Facebook.
