MASTERCLASS 2: The Interaction between Technology and Rhetoric in Framing Public Understandings of War and Violence

Have new digital media platforms and technologies changed the way we commemorate war? Drawing mainly on examples from contemporary American and British war films, the Masterclass approaches ways through which technology and rhetoric interact to frame public understandings of historical incidents of war and violence.

The Masterclass will consist of a short introductory lecture that will be followed by practical analysis of video clips and discussion.

 

CONVENER:

Dr Holger Pötszch works at the Department of Culture and Literature at Tromsø University (UiT) where he is associated with the Border Culture and DOMINO research groups. Pötzsch’s field of research includes discourse theory, war film and memory, war and the media, and the discursive construction of borders and boundaries in, and through, cultural expressions. He currently works on a project that focuses on liminal aspects in the work of Norwegian filmmaker Knut Erik Jensen.

 

This event will be held at UWS Paramatta campus. See: Campus map and travel options.
