Registration is now open for 'Re-thinking the Screenplay', the first
conference organised by the Screenwriting Research Network based at the
Louis Le Prince Centre, Institute of Communication Studies, University of
Leeds, in partnership with research colleagues at the University of Art and
Design Helsinki. Our intention is to draw together colleagues who are
actively researching and reflecting on screenwriting, whether through
traditional or practice-based research, and at both pre- and post-doctoral
level; and to extend membership of the Network as support for ongoing
Speakers will include film-maker Dr. Kathryn Millard (Macquarie, Aus); film-
maker Prof. J.J. Murphy (Wisconsin-Madison, USA); animation expert Prof.
Paul Wells (Loughborough, UK); screenwriter Prof. Michael Eaton (Nottingham
Trent, UK) (tbc); film historian Prof. Graham Roberts (Liverpool John
Moores, UK); and colleagues from Helsinki.
The practice of screenwriting is now an established taught subject in
Universities around the world. The theory of screenwriting lags some way
behind, and this conference redresses that imbalance by inviting colleagues
to reflect on the key document – the screenplay – and on the processes that
surround its use.
