Media and Conflict Interchange - Unique film screenings, expert speakers and workshops
25 October 11
Tuesday 25th October 2011 is the first of three days of workshops organised by the University of Bradford¿s Media School in partnership with the National Media Museum, the third such event since the city was granted the status of UNESCO's first 'City of Film' in 2009.
The Media and Conflict Interchange is a factual and fictional film event which explores themes of media representation, identity and global environmental change as drivers for conflict.
The first two days of the event will see five screenings accompanied by talks from expert speakers, including Professor Paul Rogers, from the University of Bradford and author of 'Why we're losing the War on Terror'. On the third and final day the University of Bradford will host a day of interactive workshops on its campus. The workshops will cover a range of topics including one on new media and conflict where the use of mobile video footage, twitter and computer games will be discussed.
