Plotting the Crisis: Ecologies, Commodities and the Arts

9:00am to 5:00pm, Institute for Advanced Studies in Durham

Speaking to CVAC’s “Environments” theme, Kerstin Oloff (School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham) has organized a one-day workshop to be held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Durham on 24 May 2014 on ‘Plotting the Crisis: Ecologies, Commodities and the Arts’.

Speakers include Jason Moore (Binghamton), Sharae Deckard (UCD), Treasa DeLoughrey (UCD) and Janet Stewart (Durham).

The workshop, which has been organized with the support of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Durham University, the Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience, Durham University, and the University of Warwick’s Global Research Priorities, seeks to interrogate the concept of the ‘crisis’ by setting it in the context of thinking about capitalism as ‘world-ecology’.

Workshop on Ethnographic Filmmaking

9:00am to 5:00pm, Lake District

Lake District, 30 May – 2 June 2014

Durham University’s Residential Workshop on Ethnographic Filmmaking will take place in the Lake District from 30 May to 2 June 2014. Organised by the Department of Anthropology and financially supported by Arts and Humanities Research Council, the workshop aims to introduce the history, theory and practice of ethnographic film to Durham University-based postgraduate researchers of anthropology and AHRC-related disciplines who are interested in ethnographic research and audio-visual media.

In an intensive 4-day practical and theoretical training, participants will get acquainted with key concepts of ethnographic film language. They will gain understanding and basic skills in various audio-visual techniques for ethnographic filmmaking and develop confidence in using the medium of film for research purposes regardless of limited financial and technical resources.

The main emphasis of the training will be placed on creating short ethnographic films in a small group setting following established practices of film production. The practical challenge will be preceded by a series of introductory sessions that will focus on the history and theory of ethnographic film language as well as the basics of handling audio-visual equipment and journalism.

Meals, accommodation and transportation will be covered for all selected participants.

If you are interested in participating, please read the open call and fill in the online application form by Friday, 25 April 2014.

For any additional information contact Dr Alex Flynn or Pina Sadar.
