Description

About this session

Open to PhD students and early career researchers from any discipline, this workshop introduces the ethics and responsibilities around image use, and offers some useful advice on communicating research through design. It will be led by photographer and filmmaker Penelope Quinton, drawing on her experience in print and online journalism both as an author of images which have then been used by others, and as a practitioner communicating visually. Attendees will have the opportunity to test design and presentation ideas using their own topics of research.

Pennie is a doctoral candidate in the School of Global Health and Social Medicine at King’s College London.

Please note: attendees from the Bloomsbury Postgraduate Skills Network (BPSN) must register via the BPSN webapges.

About the programme

This programme of workshops, screening and conference will be a unique exploration of fair dealing as it affects academics and practitioners working with the still and moving image. For more information please visit: fairdealing.jarmanlab.org

Thinking and writing about images is innate to academic practice in the humanities and beyond, as is disseminating this criticism and analysis as a research output. But academics and practitioners commenting on visual material often find themselves in a difficult or expensive situation when it comes to reproducing the images themselves. Reproduction rights and license fees can be prohibitive to publication or exhibition. The legal defence of fair dealing ‘for criticism and review purposes’ is largely untested. This leads to a climate of uncertainty for authors, both of books and of audiovisual works, who must operate in a grey area of copyright law in order to make their research public.
