TiMeDoc Symposium 2015
TiMeDoc Symposium 2015, the second international event organized by our research group "Time and Memory in Contemporary Audiovisual Non-Fiction", took place in the University of Navarra on the 22nd and 23rd of June.
The symposium, centred on memory, archive and documentary films, began with Jane Gaines' (Columbia University) session on different theories of History, using as an example the photographic material of Amundsen's expedition to the South Pole. Carlos Muguiro, member of the research group, dealt with Cuban "Estalgia." The last session of the day was Christa Blümlinger's (Université Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis), which analysed different types of archive footage used in different documentary films. The second day started with Sylvie Lindeperg (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), who, through a historical approach, analysed different uses of film footage shot in the Nazi concentration camps. Vicente Sánchez-Biosca (Universidad de Valencia) dealt with the appropriation of images of the Cambodian concentration camp S-21. The third session of the day was given by Jaimie Baron (University of Alberta) about the legal evidentiary use of film footage. The symposium ended with a wrap up by Josep María Catalá (Univesitat Autónoma de Barcelona), who opened a very interesting final discussion.
