Call for Papers: IAMHIST Master Class 2020

The International Association for Media and History


The Department of Film & Screen Media, University College Cork

IAMHIST Master Class on Media and History

Thursday, 9 January 2020 (master class)

Friday, 10 January 2020 (symposium: Archival Appropriation: Reuse, Recycling and Remediation in the Digital Era)

Location: University College Cork, Cork, Ireland


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 research, appropriation and recycling of archival footage, 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 and an evening cocktail are included. Participants are expected to attend both the master class and the one-day conference.

To apply for this event, send a 300-word proposal of your project and a one paragraph bio to IAMHIST President Leen Engelen ( Deadline is 15 November 2019.

There’s a number of small travel grants available for master class participants without institutional funding. Please mention in your proposal whether you want to apply for the travel grant.
