Poetics and Politics of Documentary June 2nd - 4th 2017
This third edition of ‘Poetics and Politics of Documentary’ provides a rare and valuable opportunity for critical reflection on documentary by practice-led researchers and for dynamic discussion about the intersections of technology, aesthetics and ideology.
The particular emphasis this year is on the theme, ‘Beyond Empathy’. How might the call for empathy be justified in relation to debates from Brecht onwards about the political and ideological limitations of such an approach? How do we move between eliciting empathy to creating analysis and how can the affective dimension of visual and aural languages be best deployed to achieve this? To what extent do the immersive or interactive affordances of newer documentary practices succeed in encouraging political agency?
The symposium seeks to explore how the hybrid forms of contemporary practice work to re-constitute or challenge the relationship, and meanings of, authorship, participation, aesthetics, reception and activism.
A conference dinner will be held on Saturday 3rd June. If you wish to attend, please select the ‘with conference dinner’ option when choosing from the booking options below. Please be advised that places are limited.
