Research Dissemination: Conference Program for Visible Evidence Announced!

The program for the XXVIII Visible Evidence Conference 2022 has been announced! The conference, which will be held in Gdansk, Poland, on 10-14 August 2022 will be the fourth conference presentation for the project VIDEOACT. The conference’s theme this year is “Images of History” and Şirin will be presenting a paper called “Experiences of Migration from Turkey to Germany:  The Female Guest Worker in Contemporary Documentaries”, where she will detail the representation of the guest worker in Germany’s cinema and provide two contemporary examples of documentaries that challenge historical narratives through the documentation of women’s voices. This documentation reflects back upon the female filmmakers, who themselves are new wave migrants from Turkey in Germany.
