CALL FOR CANDIDATES

Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doc, or young professional currently working on a project in which you engage issues concerning historical representation in audiovisual media or issues in media history? Are you interested in presenting your project to a small group of experts and peers? Then this masterclass 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. As this is a pre-conference event for a one-day symposium on Hidden Archives: Marginalised and Alternative Collections and Practices, presentations on this area are particularly welcome.

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. A maximum of ten 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, a tour of the IFI Irish Film Archive and a screening of All of Us Strangers (Andrew Haigh, 2023) are included. Participants are expected to attend both the master class and the one-day conference.

To apply for this event, send a 250-word proposal of your project and a one paragraph bio to IAMHIST President Leen Engelen (leen.engelen@kuleuven.be) AND Vice President Tobias Hochsherf (tobias.hochscherf@fh-kiel.de). Deadline is 15th December 2023.

To find out more about the International Association for Media and History or to become a member, visit the website at www.iamhist.net or join us on Facebook or X (Twitter).
