CHASE and UoL Screen Studies Group Training Day – 19 October 2019

We write to invite you to the annual Screen Studies Group Training Day on:

19 October, 2019 at Goldsmiths.

We attach a programme with a registration link.

This is a one-day session presenting research methods for all new and returning doctoral students. We will address a variety of topics that now concern Screen and Film Studies such as online research, social media; installation work; music videos, production cultures, media industries, creative practice, and live cinema.  The day will include a roundtable on interdisciplinarity.

This event is funded by CHASE, however ALL Screen Studies researchers from ALL institutions are welcome.

Looking forward to greeting you there,

Rachel Moore, SSG coordinator, Goldsmiths College

Who we are:  The University of London Screen Studies Group was founded in 2001 to serve the varied interests of academic staff and postgraduate students who work on screen-related research across the University of London.

Screen Studies Today has two major goals.  The first is to bring together all new film and screen studies doctoral students in London and the environs. It will enable network building around shared specialisms beyond your home department.  Second, it will provide foundational training in methods that are relatively new to this field and which home institutions often cannot provide.
