This collaborative will apply for node status with the Charles Perkins Centre.
The Camera-Stylo conference proposes to explore conceptions of and intersections between the pen and the camera, word and image, page and screen – the literary and the cinematic. We aim to open up a lively debate on any and all ways in which literary and cinematic imagining informs or plays out within each medium.
Congratualtions to Dr Karina Aveyard and Dr Olivia Murphy, University of Sydney Postodctoral Fellowship recipients, who will be joining us in SLAM.
