2nd Annual Post Graduate Symposium
Event detailsThis event seeks to encourage a wide array of research interests and to incorporate interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of theatre, film and television. We are interested in receiving submissions from postgraduate students researching any and all aspects of the three disciplines and are open to presentations incorporating less traditional research methods, including demonstrations of practical and creative work. The research interests of our own students will form the core of the day’s discussions, but we are happy to incorporate high quality work on any aspect of theatre, film and television.

TV Narratives Symposium
Event detailsThe narratives of TV drama have long since moved beyond the structural parameters of the single play, the serial and the series to embrace more hybrid, complex and expansive forms. This one-day symposium seeks to investigate such expansions in the form and content of TV narratives. What effects have changing trends in television narrative had upon television aesthetics, storytelling and spectatorship? How have they impacted upon the contributions of writers, producers, directors and performers working within TV drama?
