Research profile seminar

Presentations by Yvonne Zimmermann, Sabine Kriebel, Martin Reinhart, Erika Larsson, Louise Wolthers and Niclas Östlind. Introduction by Mats Jönsson.

During the 1920s and 1930s the roles of both photography and film multiplied within all areas of society: technology, politics, science and culture. The interdisciplinary research project on Interwar Lens Media Cultures offers new empirical, material and theoretical perspectives to the established histories of film and photography in the period. Part of the project is the forthcoming anthology Thresholds - Framing Interwar Lens Media Cultures, representing new ways of exploring, writing and doing photo and film history where the two media, rather than being separated, are investigated in light of each other. Four of the contributing researchers will be presenting work at this public seminar moderated by the editors and initiators of the research project.
