Journeys Across Media (JAM) Postgraduate Conference
Department of Film, Theatre and Television, University of Reading
The Journeys Across Media (JAM) Postgraduate Conference, run by postgraduate students for postgraduate students, is back for 2017 and will be taking place on Tuesday 11th April in Minghella Studios, Whiteknights Campus.
This year, we have gathered an eclectic collection of papers and practice as research presentations to explore the theme of ‘Worldhood and World-making’ in film, theatre, television, new media and beyond. From the world cinemas of Brazil, Spain and Iran to the world-building of major hit U.S. television series; from the utopias conjured by British and America avant-garde filmmakers to the DIY noise-makers of the unruly Japanese punk scene; and from the suspension of disbelief in fictional podcasts to the suspension of reality in participatory theatre, there’s something for everyone at this year’s JAM conference. (You can see the conference schedule below.)
Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. Daniel Yacavone, Lecturer in Film Studies and Director of the Film Studies Programme at the University of Edinburgh, and author of Film Worlds: A Philosophical Aesthetics of Cinema (Columbia UP: 2015).
Registration to attend is now live at the University of Reading online store: http://store.rdg.ac/JourneyAcrossMediaJAM2017
