Visible Evidence IX
December 17-20, 2001
Presented by the Australian Key Centre for Cultural and Media Policy and
the School of Film, Media and Cultural Studies, Griffith University
CALL FOR PANELS
The 2001 Visible Evidence Conference is the ninth in a series of major
interdisciplinary conferences on the representation of (social) reality in
documentary film and video. Since the key issue of representing reality
explores a wide range of cultural, political, social, historical,
ethnographic, medical and pedagogical questions, we welcome proposals from
all academic fields.
For the first time, VE is to be held in the southern hemisphere, and in
view of our location in Australia, we are particularly keen to encourage
· indigenous documentary
· post-colonial representations
· documentary in the Pacific Rim
· other panels dealing with issues pertaining to the region.
However, this is an open call and we encourage potential participants to
think about documentary in as wide a way as possible. We also welcome
suggestions for alternative modes of delivery which maximise the potential
for discussion, for example, workshop sessions.
We would also like to encourage the involvement of filmmakers, curators and
producers in debates on contemporary documentary practice, and to explore
the space between the perspectives of scholars and cultural entrepreneurs.
At this time you may submit a panel proposal by using the abstract form to
the address listed below. You will need to submit the following:
1) a panel proposal (half a page),
2) a brief description of your experience relevant to the proposal.
All proposals must be made using the format below (also available on the
website) and sent to [log in to unmask] by 30 March 2001.
Please note that, due to the time available at the conference, we will only
be able to select a limited amount of panels. We have committed ourselves
to a single stream of panels.
After having selected panels and panel chairs, a Call for Papers will
follow (by May 1st, with the names of the panel chairs as panel
organisers), as well as more information about registration, accommodation,
and other administrative issues.
The 2001 Visible Evidence Conference is presented by the Australian Key
Centre for Cultural and Media Policy and the School of Film, Media and
Cultural Studies at Griffith University, in conjunction with Queensland
University of Technology, La Trobe University, and University of Technology
