13.00 – 18.00

Sheppard Room, Brotherton Library, Parkinson Building (University of Leeds Campus)

This event is a collaboration between three institutions of the University of Leeds: the Leeds Humanities Research Institute, the Sadler Seminar Series and the Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures.

This half-day networking event aims to foster links between scholars at the University of Leeds (UoL) working on/with heritage and audiovisual media (film, audio recording and broadcasting). Scholars at the UoL have been actively engaged with media heritage, demonstrating the ability to attract funding and to liaise with non-academic organisations in order to deliver impact. The goal of the event is to connect research experiences from the three institutions and build on such successes. This might mean developing more cross-departmental research on the topic, developing modules able to deliver excellent teaching and training, as well as creating schemes with external organisations to enhance student employability. The event is not exclusive to staff and students of UoL, and it is also of interest to scholars, professionals, and students from other institutions who may be interested in either simply joining the conversation or in developing potential collaborations with UoL researchers.

The event is free but capacity is limited, so please register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/3rd-audiovisual-heritage-meeting-tickets-38625521976
