The workshop is a student-led event organized by PhD students in Culture Studies 

The workshop is divided in 4 working sessions with paper presentations and time for discussion afterwards.

The topics of the sessions are Memory and Dreams, Systems and Structures, Conflict and Identity, and Ecology and Politics

This will be a two day event that will unite academics, PhD and MA students for paper presentations, round tables and debates related to Film Studies and their place in Academia.

The objective is to bring together and engage people who are passionate about Film Studies and want to share ideas, opinions and gain something for their research or see how this is developing. We will be having key note speakers from various institutions in Portugal as we wish to make a platform for cooperation for scholars from not only UCP Lisboa. We feel there is this necessity for sharing ideas, as many times PhD and MA projects seem as a very solitary work, but they do not have to be this way. Sharing ideas is always fruitful and inspirational. 

The workshop is organized by Ekaterina Smirnova and Sara Magno

All students from The Lisbon Consortium are welcome to join the workshop.

The workshop is free to attend.
