The Work-In-Progress (WIP) workshop series at the Global Emergent Media (GEM) Lab in the Film department at Concordia now welcomes applications for presentations of in-progress and multi-media research projects in the Winter semester. The deadline is January 5, 2018.
Please send a brief description of the project (250-350 words), and a short outline of the intended presentation format to: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
The workshop is meant to showcase new and developing projects by the Fine Arts graduate community (and beyond), creating a space for interdisciplinary critique and feedback. Encouraging the engagement of workshop participants, the emphasis will be on research methodologies and future directions. We aim to create a space for alternative methodologies and practices, investigating research trends in the humanities such as visual anthropology, digital ethnography, field recording and sound experiments, approaches to information technologies, and other on-the-ground research practices. Workshops will be structured according to the necessities of the project. Workshop leaders will be invited to pre-circulate reading materials and introduce multimedia aspects of their projects to accompany their presentations. However, other forms of workshop organization are welcome in order to fulfill the mandate of in-progress, emergent research.
