The Media department at Coventry will soon be host to the Besides the Screen symposium, on 9th and 10th April 2015. Media and Communications lecturer Dr. Ginnie Crisp is organising the event on Piracy in Theory and Practice, a subject central to her own research and upcoming book.
Dr. Crisp is currently looking for ongoing research projects to participate in a workshop associated with this AHRC funded event. The workshop will be on Thursday 9th April, during the first day of the main event.
Confirmed speakers at the symposium include Ramon Lobato (Swinburne/Australia), HD Mabuse (CESAR/Brazil), Gabriel Menotti (UFES/Brazil), Pedro Mizukami (FGV/Brazil), Gary Hall (Coventry/UK) and Virginia Crisp (Coventry/UK).
Dr. Crisp welcomes proposals from a wide range of topics within this area, and encourages the participation of PhD candidates and early career researchers. Participation in the workshop is free of charge (as is attendance at the symposium), but all participants must cover their own transportation and accommodation costs.
To submit a proposal, send a text file (doc, docx, rtf) containing a short abstract about your research (~250 words) and bio (~150 words) to the email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject PROPOSAL – PIRACY IN THEORY AND PRACTICE. The deadline is 2nd Feb 2015. Selected participants will be notified by 9th Feb 2015.
