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. The workshop will
be on Thursday 9th April, during the first day of the main 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
scholarships, and even raise questions about the ontology of the moving

Confirmed speakers at the symposium include Adnan Hadzi (Coventry/UK), Gary
Hall (Coventry/UK), Ramon Lobato (Swinburne/Australia), HD Mabuse
(CESAR/Brazil), Gabriel Menotti (UFES/Brazil), Paul McDonald (University of
Nottingham/UK), Pedro Mizukami (FGV/Brazil), and Jonas Andersson Schwarz
(Södertörn University/Sweden).

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.

All participating works will be considered for publication in a special
edition of an international, blind peer-reviewed journal.

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.

Besides the Screen is an international research network active since 2010,
involving participants from the UK, Mexico and Brazil. It means to
investigate the continuing development of audiovisual practices from a
materialistic perspective, deploying artistic and unorthodox methodologies
in the context of cinema studies. Its ever-expanding constellation of
topics revolves around techniques of projection, the centrality of marginal
processes, and the manifold systems of movie storage and transmission.
