The Centre for Documentary Research at QUB was launched on April 4th 2017. It is a new initiative that offers a space to debate issues and organise activities around the study and practice of documentary film. Our team in interdisciplinary, with interests in Film, Languages, English and History. We are scholars, students, curators and practitioners of documentary film, with interests including mental health, conflict, experimental film, Brazilian protest films, new media and interactivity. We intend to run workshops, screenings, seminars, and conferences; contribute to publications; and, of course, make documentary films.
We have already established collaborative relationships with local and international groups and intend to build on these:
The newly established Centre for Documentary Research at Queen’s University Belfast, will host a one-day conference on the theme of ‘Citizenship and Surveillance: the Camera as Witness’.
In collaboration with the Documentary Film Institute of the State University of San Francisco, the conference will investigate, from an international perspective, the use of images and sounds for purposes of witnessing community/political advocacy or by state/company surveillance. We welcome papers from theorists, practitioners, and curators.
More details on accompanying film screenings at Queen’s Film Theatre and keynote speaker(s) to follow soon.
