Afterlives: Remediations in Word and Image

6-7 May 2016 ** NOTE NEW DATE! **

Keynote Speaker:
Laura Mulvey
Professor of Film and Media Studies,
Birkbeck, University of London

The next SWIG conference will consider the issue of remediation in word and image. We are proud to announce that Professor Laura Mulvey will be our keynote speaker. Her pioneering study of remediation in cinema invites examinations of the relationship between identity, mortality and resurrection that extend beyond film to inform a number of creative and critical contexts. Influenced by Dundee's own civic regeneration - as highlighted by its recently awarded status of UNESCO City of Design - the SWIG conference will be a forum for debate about the questions raised by notions of remediation, regeneration and reanimation in the arts, literature and design.
