Alessandra Luciano: “None of us has seen this collection since it aired in the early 80s: Chewing Rock & Saga du Rock”

[TBA]: “208 Radio Luxembourg, The Station of the Stars”- In 1933, “Radio Luxembourg” began broadcasting in England, despite fierce opposition from the BBC, and became Europe’s most powerful commercial radio station. During the 1950s and 1960s, “208” was THE radio of the rock ‘n’ roll and pop revolution, and represented the voice of freedom throughout Europe, even beyond the “Iron Curtin”, leaving its mark on an entire generation. This talk will retrace this unique history, and how the archives have allowed to turn this research into a documentary film using television, radio and photographic archival collections.

IAMHIST Master Class on Media and History

Thursday, 24 January 2019 (master class)

Friday, 25 January 2019 (symposium)

Location: CNA (Dudelange) & Université du Luxembourg (Esch-sur-Alzette), Luxembourg


CALL FOR MASTER CLASS PARTICIPANTS:

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. The master class deliberately has a broad scope, including any research in the field of media and history. But as this is a pre-conference event for a one-day symposium on the conservation, preservation, accessibility and creative re-use of television archives, proposals in this field are especially welcomed.

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 project and discuss sources and strategies for developing it further. Maximum 10 proposals will be accepted.

The day is designed to be a small-scale 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 and an evening cocktail are included. Budget accommodation is available in Luxembourg. Participants of the master class are expected to also attend the one-day conference.

To apply for this event, send a 300 word proposal of your project and one paragraph bio to IAMHIST vice-president Leen Engelen (leen.engelen@luca-arts.be). Deadline is 15 November 2018.

The symposium STANDING IN THE WAY OF WHITE NOISE: PRESERVING TELEVISION HISTORY on the conservation, preservation and new access and research possibilities for television collections will be held on 25 January 2018 at the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA) in Dudelange (Luxembourg). More information will be available on the IAMHIST website soon.
