Coventry University, UK, 9 - 10 April 2015

We are looking for ongoing research projects to participate in a workshop
associated with the AHRC funded Besides the Screen symposium PIRACY IN
THEORY & PRACTICE, to be held at Coventry University, UK, on 9-10 April
2015. The workshop will be on Thursday 9th April, during the first day of
the event.

Departing from the relation of movie piracy with the economy and politics
of content distribution, the symposium means to discuss the dynamics of
authority embedded in contemporary systems of communication and explore how
informal media practices might intervene with the development of new
technologies, frame film curating, foster or inhibit particular

Confirmed speakers at the symposium include Ramon Lobato
(Swinburne/Australia), Gabriel Menotti (UFES/Brazil), Pedro Mizukami
(FGV/Brazil), Gary Hall (Coventry/UK) and Virginia Crisp (Coventry/UK).

We welcome proposals from a wide range of topics within this universe, and
encourage 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
besidesthescreen at gmail.com with the subject PROPOSAL – PIRACY IN THEORY AND

The deadline is 2nd Feb 2015. Selected participants will be notified by 9th
Feb 2015.
