Television Heritage as part of a collective European Memory
|Prof. in charge||María Antonia PAZ|
This seminar aims, first of all, to highlight Spanish and European television heritage through participants’ (master’s and PhD students) reflection on the historical, social and cultural importance of television via analysis of cases studies on the history of Europe and the history of European television. It also seeks to encourage academic research on this medium, providing knowledge about the particularities of television, the evolution of academic studies of it and the analytical possibilities for different genres.
It will promote the completion of research on this area of study: at least one MFP (master's final project) each year and the completion of a doctoral thesis, as well as the organization of meetings with European professionals and specialists at a conference that will take place on World Day for Audiovisual Heritage and be held at the Faculty of Information Sciences. About a hundred people (students, teachers, people interested in the subject and so on) are expected to attend. INA, the UER and other bodies will take part in the conference.
One conference will be held each year (making for three in total). Proceedings will be streamed and made available for later playback on a You tube channel.
A thematic issue of the journal Documentación de las Ciencias de la Información (UCM) containing the papers from the conferences will be published (at the end of the Chair in 2023).
