SECTOR EVENTS



PHOTOGRAPHY EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM
London South Bank University, Keyworth St Building, Keyworth St, London SE1 0AA
Friday 13 March 2009

A one day symposium to be held at London South Bank University, the proceedings of which will be recorded and from which edited transcripts will be generated and further considered written responses commissioned.

They envisage the symposium and submissions addressing principally, if not exclusively, three themes which provide a guide to the interests this issue is seeking responses to. They are more than aware that photo imaging is being entailed in other kinds of scientific, technical, educational and cultural practices, which may lie outside of the framework they have sketched but which will also be of interest to the journal (see call for papers below).

The three indicative themes are:

1.    Recent changes in the economies of knowledge

2.    Changes in the production, circulation and use of photographic images

3.    New developments in image engineering technologies

If you are interested in attending the symposium please contact Martin Lister at martin.lister@uwe.ac.uk or at
photographies@plymouth.ac.uk

A Special Relationship? Teaching English with Media Studies
University College Falmouth
24 April 2009
 
This event will provide a space to explore the relationship between the disciplines of English and Media Studies in terms of: programme design and content; teaching methodologies; and the place of theory in the syllabus. It is of interest to those who teach on further and higher education programmes which offer any kind of combination of the two subjects, English and Media Studies.

The QAA Benchmarking Statement for English now acknowledges the teaching of literary texts together with other media and 'cultural forms' and it explicitly acknowledges Cultural Studies-based programmes as an important sector of English provision. In the light of this, it is an important time to review the history of the relationship between English and Media Studies and to think about the future direction of that relationship. In addition, the current technological landscape promises to change the concept of the literary text itself and the boundaries between the two subjects are surely set to blur even further.

Journal of Screenwriting ISSN 1757 - 1871

Deadline for submissions: 16 March 2009

Researchers, educators and practitioners are invited to contribute to the Journal of Screenwriting, a new peer-reviewed journal set up to focus on this important aspect of moving image pre-production and conceptualisation. Contributions are sought on the history, theory and practice of screenwriting and related topics, covering a wide range of practices from film and television to animation, new media and computer games.

The Journal of Screenwriting brings together research and reflection on pedagogy, professionalism and practice in an area which has until now been rather overlooked in academic discourse. New work has conventionally been scattered throughout journals devoted to specific aspects of media theory or practice, and this is the first UK academic journal to bring together serious screenwriting-related work under one title. The
Journal is international in scope, and seeks wide-ranging work which is critical, rigorous and original in its contribution to this developing area of study. We expect to include work which employs a diverse range of methodological approaches, including textual analysis, production analysis, practice as research and historical investigation.

Articles should be between 4000 and 7000 words in length.

They also welcome articles suggesting new approaches to the study of screenwriting, and articles presenting new approaches to the teaching of screenwriting.

Articles should be sent as soon as possible or by 16 March 2009 to the Principal Editor Jill Nelmes (j.nelmes@uel.ac.uk), and to the Co-Editor, Ian Macdonald (i.w.macdonald@leeds.ac.uk), to either of whom any queries about suitability of subject or other requirements should be sent.
