The schedule for the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies has been announced. Set to take place 22-26 June 2022 in Bucharest, Romania, this year’s conference title is “Epistemic Media: Atlas, Archive and Network”. I will be presenting research from my current project VIDEOACT. My presentation titled “Playful Activism of Online Mash-Up Videos: Political Critique through Satire” will examine the online political mash-up videos of a new wave migrant from Turkey to Germany. The analysis will explore the ways in which the online political mash-up is used as a form of citizen engagement, advancing new political narratives, by critically transforming media content so as to ridicule and subvert the government discourses and media workings. The presentation will take place at the Politehnica University of Bucharest, on June 25, 2022, at 16:15.
Here is the programme for this year’s NECS conference:
