I will be traveling this week, first to Newcastle University for their conference on New Uses of Bourdieu in Film and Media Studies. I'm excited for the conference, since Bourdieu's been central to my methodological thinking since graduate school. A full program is available at the conference website.
Afterward, I'll be attending the IDFA/ International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. I do believe that In Media Res will be hosting an IDFA-themed week on documentary, so keep an eye out for that.
I will try to post dispatches and summaries from each.
