Ulster University, Magee Campus (Derry), is pleased to host the 16th Irish Screen Studies Seminar, to be held online on 6-7 May 2021.

The Irish Screen Studies Seminar provides a unique platform for the presentation of new work – research, practice, and research through practice – by scholars and filmmakers from third-level institutions in Ireland, as well as those working on Irish screen-related topics in other universities and colleges worldwide.

The seminar is aimed at academic researchers and practitioners in film and screen cultures in the broadest sense, touching on audio, film, television, digital media, transmedia, digital games and related interdisciplinary activity. The ISSS actively promotes the exchange of ideas and offers postgraduate and early career researchers and practitioners an ideal opportunity to present evolving screen-related research and practice in a constructive and encouraging forum. Conference papers will be archived on the Irish Screen Studies website.

We are delighted to announce that the keynote speakers for the conference will be Prof John Hill, Professor of Film Studies at Royal Holloway London and Dr Liz Greene, Reader in Film and Sonic Arts at Liverpool John Moores University.

We invite proposals in all areas of film and screen research and/or practice. To submit an abstract/proposal, please email 200 words and a short bio to ISS2020seminar@gmail.com by 21/3/21.
