“Dissolves of Passion”? Materially thinking through editing in digital videographic film and moving image studies

Thursday 26 November 2015, 17.00 – 19.00, OMHP D 0.09

Focusing on a number of videographic explorations of matters of film editing (including several of her own), Grant’s talk will ask what such practical, digital and audiovisual modes of research and presentation — ones which themselves evidently turn on editing — might add to the study of a cinematic feature that (with a number of key exceptions) has not received much sustained attention to date in written film scholarship.
