We are delighted to invite postgraduates and early-career researchers to apply to attend an interdisciplinary two-day workshop on the theme of Media and Oppression. The goal of this event is to share work and learn collaboratively, on topics surrounding screen media’s role in perpetuating or combatting oppression. This workshop will enable early career researchers to practise collaborating across disciplines in a comfortable environment. Rather than a traditional conference-style event, this event will involve three kinds of sessions: a ‘Reading Group’, a ‘Talk Session’ and a ‘Discussion Session’. The ‘Reading Group’ sessions will involve all participants discussing two papers, that we collectively choose in advance.

The ‘Discussion Sessions’ will consist of a group discussion on a particular theme (e.g. representations of protest; meaning in music videos). We will discuss topics such as:
