Upcoming conference: Children and Nontheatrical Media

Conference organized by University of Glasgow for archivists, academics and filmmakers on the theme of ‘Children and non-theatrical media: from film to video‘. The conference committee, led by Professor Karen Lury (School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow), welcomes papers and presentations exploring the relationship between nontheatrical media (meaning amateur, orphan, sponsored, municipal, educational films and/or audiovisual material) and children.

Suggested topics might include but are not limited to:

  • Children as performers
  • Children as subjects
  • Children as audiences (e.g. in schools)
  • Children as makers

The conference is supported by the AHRC and related to the project Children and Amateur Media in Scotland: www.gla.ac.uk/cams
