INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH SEMINARS

Weds. 31 January   5.30 - 8.00 p.m.   Room 739
VideoCulture
Video and Intercultural Communication

Does video represent a new form of transnational communication, that
transcends verbal language? What happens when young people produce
audio-visual statements for their counterparts in other cultures? And how
can we teach young people to communicate more effectively in these new
media?

VideoCulture was an international research project, which involved the
production and exchange of short videotapes among groups of young people in
the UK, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the USA. At this seminar,
Professor Horst Niesyto of the University of Ludwigsburg will present some
overall findings from the research, and discuss the methodological
potential of this approach for youth research in general. Professor David
Buckingham of the Institute of Education and Issy Harvey of the British
Film Institute will present some of the findings from the UK research for
VideoCulture, and discuss its implications for their ongoing research in
this area.


Thurs. 8 March   5.30 - 8.30 p.m.   Room 642
Pokemon
Globalisation and Children's Culture

Pokemon has been one of the most phenomenal success stories in the history
of children's culture. Beginning as a video game, it is now a massive
commercial franchise that includes a card game, a television show, two
feature films, and a series of collectibles, such as stickers and small
toys.

The Pokemon research project involved participants from the UK, Japan, Hong
Kong, France, Australia, Israel and the USA. The UK research, based at the
Institute of Education, was partly funded by the Japan Foundation. At this
seminar, the UK team - Julian Sefton-Green, Helen Bromley, Rebekah Willett
and David Buckingham -  will present some of the work they have been
undertaking over the past year. The research investigates young children's
play with Pokemon toys, their use of Pokemon in their creative writing, and
the various forms of learning that are at stake in the phenomenon. The
study offers a fresh new perspective on well-established questions about
young children's relationships with the media, and exciting new
methodological insights.


Seminars organised by the Centre for the Study of Children, Youth and Media.

Admission to seminars is free and open to all. We will be providing
refreshments - but please
