THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF DOCUMENTARY FILM
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM, MAY 25, 2017
UNB HARRIET IRVING LIBRARY, MILHAM ROOM (#100)
Presenter: Dr. Scott Preston, Assistant Professor, UNB
This workshop will introduce researchers to the history and evolution of the documentary as a form, from its beginnings up to today. We will consider what distinguishes a documentary from other kinds of film and video productions, and how the documentary is expanded by new digital media. Finally, we will consider in particular the different ways that academic researchers have participated in the making of documentaries throughout its history and into the present. I hope this will inspire some of you to consider using this form to disseminate your own research.
