About the Seminar
The Seminar has previously been known as the Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar. It provides a platform for the presentation of new research by scholars in Irish third-level institutions, and for those working on Irish topics in non-Irish universities and colleges. It is aimed at researchers in film and in screen culture in the broadest sense, which includes fields such as television, digital media, networks, transmedia, technoculture, and gaming.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the event, this website is now home to a permanent index and archive of all the previous presentations that have been made since 2003. Every year, this index will be updated to include the latest research and researchers’ profiles.
This year, the keynote speaker was Patrick Crogan of the University of the West of England. Dr. Crogan is at the forefront of research in digital cultures, technoculture, gaming, military robotics, and the work of Bernard Stiegler. His 2011 publication Gameplay Mode (University of Minnesota Press) examines the connections between contemporary computer games and the technoscience of the military-industrial complex since the 1940s.
