Call for Submissions: CODES & MODES, Producing Documentary Culture
The Hunter College IMA/MFA Integrated Media Arts program is hosting a documentary “unconference”:
CODES & MODES: Producing Documentary Culture.
Hunter College Campus, 695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10065 (entrance on 68th Street)
FRIDAY APRIL 4th (evening – keynotes) & SATURDAY APRIL 5th (all day – plenary, panels).
One of our main interests is in bringing together graduate students from different programs, both theory and practice-based, and in linking the teaching of documentary with other contexts where the notion of documentary is developed, promulgated, extended, or reinforced.
What makes this an unconference? In general, the unconference was designed to facilitate participant-led workshops on the day of a conference. This unconference will have this self-curated aspect, although we’ll also do some specific curating for the conference.
We will be using a blogsite: http://ima-mfa.hunter.cuny.edu/codesandmodes/ to help us develop the agenda and start the conversation.
Email your proposals directly to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for inclusion in the programmed part of the day.
Deadline for proposals: February 28th, 2014
