Poetics and Politics Documentary Research Symposium

May 15-17, 2015

Digital Arts Research Center (DARC)


This 3-day symposium gathers scholar-makers from across the US and Europe to discuss the scope of documentary-making a poetic and political form. The symposium aims to showcase new work, provoke discussion, and foster communities for documentary's continuing critical practice. The keynote speaker is Kevin Jerome Everson who has produced a seminal body of work over the previous two decades. Everson's films explore the ordinary gestures of Black American life with a pronounced sensibility for the everyday.
