It is hoped that the practice work, statements and the resulting conversations could be written up and submitted as a strand to BAFTSS online journal Open Screens.
BAFTSS Practice Research SIG champions practice research within the field of film, television and screen studies. Practice research is an established academic area which has demonstrated an impactful contribution to the field, both within the REF and research council funded projects. This group focuses on building on these foundations, exploring how screen media practice research can be developed within BAFTSS. The group aims to disseminate practice research and evaluate how practice can contribute new knowledge to the field in terms of its significance, originality and rigour. The group also explores innovative methods of academic dissemination and peer review; as well as the potential of practice research for public engagement and impact.
BAFTSS is the subject association for Film, Television and Screen Studies, championing pedagogy, research into and critical analysis of screen-based media, which we believe are central to understanding the culture, society and economy of the new century. BAFTSS exists to:
- promote the recognition of the discipline and represent the academic and professorial interests of those engaged in it to the academy, government, funding agencies, the cultural industries and the public;
- encourage best teaching and research practice;
- promote the training of postgraduate students in research;
- give researchers and practitioners the opportunity to attend and present a paper at the annual BAFTSS conference.
This event is supported by the Moving Image Research Group and the Digital Cultures Research Centre, UWE Bristol.
