Very excited to be a participant in the upcoming Besides the Screen conference at Goldsmiths College, December 1-2. More details to follow soon, but fellow panelists include Paul Gerhardt, of Archives for Creativity, Sarah Atkinson, faculty at University of Brighton, currently working with the Sally Potter archive SP-ARK, and my colleague at USC’s Institute for Multimedia Literacy, Virginia Kuhn, Associate Director of the IML. Our group will be talking about archives and “writing with video.” If you are in London in early December, hope you can join us — I know I am looking forward to the conversation.
I am definitely having a very hectic summer so far with lots of travel, and I just returned from the Domitor conference held this year in Brighton. It was a good conference and highlight for me was an evening magic lantern performance.
Now that I am settling in a bit I hope to post an interview with Sumiko Higashi on stars from silent and contemporary era once I get some time to hit the audio editor. In the meantime, there is a very cool site featuring some great research and resources on the silent star Nita Naldi put together by Donna L. Hill, Joan Myers, and Christopher S. Connelly.
Also, just to remind me of my wonderful UK trip, which included a short stay in London and time with friends, I will post a picture from Covent Garden.
