Friday, 24th May 2019 in Wolfson Research Exchange, Seminar Rooms 1-2-3
10am – 5pm
Confirmed keynote speaker: Dr Gavin Schwartz-Leeper (Liberal Arts, Warwick)
Recent decades have witnessed the rapid rise of intermedial research, or the study of the crossing of borders between media. Communication studies, linguistic studies, cultural studies, philosophy, film and television studies, art history, literature and music are just a few of the domains in which “intermediality” has generated an impressive number of analytical and theoretical discussions. Given the sustained interest in intermedial research, we would like to explore the idea of the “in-between” between media in fresh and comparative ways.
Given this sustained interest in intermedial research, we would like to explore the idea of the “in-between” between media in fresh and comparative ways. Contributors from the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences are invited to reflect upon the manner in which their research projects define and differentiate complex new interactions between media that may enrich our knowledge of intermedial research today. The corresponding questions of the Symposium can be, but are not limited to:
- What is the significance of intermediality today? How is it relevant to your specific field?
- How does intermediality point to new ways of problem-solving through medial border-crossings?
- How does your own research project incorporate intermedial processes?
The main purpose of the Symposium is to provide a convivial forum for research students to present their projects at Master’s or PhD level. Abstracts of approx. 300 words should be submitted via email to Pallavi Joshi (Pallavi.Joshi@warwick.ac.uk) and Andrea Brondino (A.Brondino@warwick.ac.uk) at the latest on 30th April 2019. Papers should last 20 mins maximum, followed by a 20 mins discussion.
Attendance is free, and the symposium will be followed by a drinks reception until 6pm.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the RSSP, CADRE and the SMLC for their generous support.
