Kudos to Exeter University, which is holding a special Screen (as in the film studies journal) 50th anniversary symposium tomorrow (Saturday, April 25).
The magazine called for bids to put on an event as part of its 50th anniversary, and students pitched a winning proposal focusing on research methodologies, linking into the extensive archival resource at the University’s Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Film and Popular Culture. Whose pulse rate wouldn’t increase on hearing that, ehh?
Lisa Stead, who’s built up a picture of the 1920s female film fan’s psyche by piecing together fan writing in letters and poetry pages in fan magazines, helped put the Screen bid together.
Professor Steve Neale, Chair of Film Studies at the University of Exeter said of the symoposium: ‘It differs from other events in being focused on the topic of research itself though in doing so it will also highlight gaps in existing knowledge. The success of Exeter’s students in winning and devising such a valuable event is a tribute to their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills.’
