FRIDAY 10 – SATURDAY 11 JULY 2015
At Screening Work, students, academics and interested members of the public were invited to explore, through subtitled film screenings and talks, the changing depiction of work in German-language moving image culture. Filmmaker Carmen Losmann attended the symposium and presented her award-winning film Work Hard Play Hard (2011). Distinguished speakers included the film theorist and critic Professor Gertrud Koch (Freie Universität Berlin), and Professor Annette Brauerhoch (University of Paderborn), co-editor of the feminist film journal frauen und film.
The symposium was preceded by a one-day postgraduate workshop featuring presentations by PhD students from the UK and Germany working on German-language film.
