This workshop builds upon the Media and Migration reading seminar in Fall 2019. The group interrogated the shifting theoretical questions about the Cold War, colonialism and their legacies from a historical as well as a contemporary perspective. Foundational concepts of post/socialism, post/colonialism, networks and translation were addressed. In the winter 2020 semester, the group will focus on developing conceptual and methodological models to address this and related issues.

As part of this program, the group will host a 1 day ”Methods in Progress” workshop for PhD candidates in the department. Selected participants will present their ongoing research to the colloquium. The workshop will be structured to provide feedback to help develop appropriate research methodologies, as well as discuss methodological models available for researchers in film and media studies more broadly.
