About this event
The XXVIII Visible Evidence Conference will take place at the University of Gdansk between 10 and 14 August 2022. The event is conceived as an “in-person” event, and we warmly invite everybody to make every effort physically to attend the sessions. The theme for the XXVIII Visible Evidence Conference is Images of History. This theme aims to reflect on the connections between history, archives, and documentaries in the broadest sense of those terms. We, therefore, invite scholars from all disciplines to submit proposals so that our meeting can be truly trans-disciplinary. Our ambition is to make the event a space that will enable reformulations of some of the basic notions in documentary film studies and practice, relating to archives and the production of knowledge. As this year’s conference will focus on connections between history and documentary filmmaking, we think it is particularly important that VE scholars and practitioners enjoy a literal and physical encounter with the city of Gdansk. However, there will be some opportunities to participate remotely and we will stream the whole event. We invite scholars, filmmakers, archivists, and activists to propose panels and presentations that address any aspect of documentary and non-fiction media.
All proposals are due by 28 February 2022!
