20th-22nd May, 2020, Maynooth University, Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Ireland
The fifth biennial Doing Women’s Film & Television History conference invites proposals from researchers and practitioners engaged in the exploration, uncovering, archiving and dissemination of women’s roles in film and television, as well as wider media, both in the past and today. The theme of this conference - ‘Forming Histories/ Histories in Formation’ – aims to foreground issues pertaining to the production, curation and archiving of women’s histories in film and television as well as the methods for, and approaches to, producing and shaping these histories as they form. We invite papers that can provide added richness to the theme of ‘Women in Film & Television’ in The UK and Ireland and further afield. Please see the call for papers for further detail.
