IAMHIST Master Class Summer 2021

Monday 27 September 2021, 3pm-7pm CET

Online meeting (Zoom)


Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doctoral researcher, or early career 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.

Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. IAMHIST Council members will engage with your project and discuss sources and strategies for developing it further.

The master class is a small-scale event that aims to offer emerging scholars and media professionals an opportunity to engage with leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. The master class includes a seminar on academic publishing. There is no charge for attendance.

To apply for this event, send a 300-word proposal of your project and a short biography to Professor Katharina Niemeyer (niemeyer.katharina@uqam.ca) and Professor Tobias Hochscherf (tobias.hochscherf@fh-kiel.de). Deadline for proposals is 10 September 2021.

IAMHIST Online: Publication Avenues – A Workshop

Are you a PhD student or early career researcher (ECR) considering pitching a book proposal to a publisher or an article to a journal based on your research into film, television and/or media history?

IAMHIST Online: Media Histories of the First World War

The first instalment of the ‘IAMHIST Online’ series, ‘Media Histories of World War I’, hosted by Leen Engelen (IAMHIST President) and Brett Bowles (Associate Editor of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television).

Part 1 of this event includes Emma Hanna (University of Kent) discussing her research on the musical cultures of the British armed forces during the Great War. Emma is the author of Sounds of War: Music in the British Armed Forces During the Great War (Cambridge University Press, 2020).

Part 2 of this event includes Veronica Johnson (National University of Ireland, Galway) discussing her research on how Ireland’s distinctive position on the edge of Europe and in the centre of Empire influences filmmaking and film consumption during the Great War. Veronica’s research centres on early and silent cinema with a focus on The Film Company of Ireland (1916-1920).

Part 3 of this event includes Jason Bate (Falmouth University) discussing the projection services of the Royal Society of Medicine and Ministry of Pensions in the Great War. Jason’s research explores photographic and lantern practices of the First World War, focusing in particular on the significance that photographers’ interactions with other media and technologies had on the production of ways of recovering from the war.
