Call for papers: New Uses of Bourdieu in Film and Media Studies

Culture Lab

Newcastle University

16 November 2012

A one day conference in collaboration between Newcastle University’s Research Centre in Film & Digital Media and the University of Sunderland’s Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies, with keynote speaker Professor Bridget Fowler of the University of Glasgow.

Despite the profound influence of Pierre Bourdieu’s work in the fields of sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies, it has been less extensively employed in research in the fields of film and media. Certainly for film, this is partially explained by a lack of direct comment by Bourdieu on the subject (the short essay “Culture is in danger” (2000) represents the most striking exception in this regard). Although Bourdieu has written more extensively on media, this has certainly not produced what one might call a Bourdieu school of media studies.

The aim of the conference, therefore, is to explore new uses of Bourdieu in film and media research.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

*      symbolic violence: making the invisible visible

*      film space and social space

*      film and artistic autonomy

*      film/media as serving/resisting cultural, social and political reproduction

*      film/media’s potential to reinforce or to resist masculine domination

*      taste, distinction and canon formation

*      reflexivity in film and media

Proposals of 200 words along with a short biography should be sent by

OSF Mapping Digital Media Digital Television, The Public Interest and EU Regulation Report Published

“Discussion of digital television has focused on switch-over dates, set-top boxes, and the technical and economic implications of switch-over. This paper, by contrast, focuses on public interest obligations and citizenship values such as freedom, access, universality, political pluralism and content diversity.

Petros Iosifi distinguishes broadly between public interest priorities as understood in Western Europe, and in Central and Eastern Europe. After assessing some obvious benefits of digital TV (extra channels, converged communications, enhanced interactivity and mobility), he argues that the public interest outcomes from the introduction of new technologies like the internet and digital TV will depend on how people use them, for new technology is only a vehicle by means of which public interest goals can be achieved.He then considers digital TV penetration data from across Europe, as well as the status of national digital switch-over plans, stressing that northern Europe is much more advanced in this regard than Southern and Eastern Central Europe.

Outlining the pros and cons of digital switch-over for the public, Iosifidis contends that universality and accessibility can best be ensured by maintaining public service media, which have been—and should continue to be—important conveyors of freely accessible and reliable information. Countries where television has been dominated by state broadcasters should use the new technology and in particular digital switch-over to create independent nonprofit channels at both local and national levels, to foster a competitive environment and political pluralism.”
