Scholarship in Sound and Image: Producing Videographic Criticism in the Digital Age

A two week workshop at Middlebury College for twelve participants on the topic of incorporating time-based media like video and audio in multimodal humanities scholarship.

This two-week workshop, scheduled for June 2015, will gather scholars interested in producing critical work in a multi-media format. The workshop is designed for 12 participants, ranging in rank from advanced graduate students to full professors, whose objects of study involve audio-visual media, especially film, television, and other new digital media forms. In a workshop setting, we will consider the theoretical foundation for undertaking such innovative work, and we will experiment extensively with producing multi-media scholarly work, resulting in at least one work of publishable quality per participant. The goals will be to explore a range of approaches by using moving images as a critical language and to expand the expressive possibilities available to innovative humanists. The curriculum and work produced by the participants in the workshop will be featured in a special issue of [in]Transition, the first peer reviewed journal devoted exclusively to videographic criticism.
