We are excited to announced that Screenworks is expanding! We are welcoming three new Associate Editors to our Editorial Board: Lucy Leake (Plymouth College of Art), Dr Elan Gamaker (University of Roehampton, London) and Dr Jimmy Hay (University of Bristol), who bring a wealth of experience and complimentary skills to the team. They join Editor Dr Charlotte Crofts (Associate Professor Filmmaking, UWE Bristol), and Associate Editors Dr Nariman Massoumi (University of Bristol) and Alex Nevill (PhD Candidate at UWE Bristol). In addition, Alex is moving Stateside in January, taking up a post as Assistant Professor in the school of cinema at San Francisco State University, making us a truly International affair. Congratulations Alex.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Steve Presence for all his hard work over the past few years helping keep Screenworks afloat and contributing to its development as a rigorous space in which to articulate screen media practice as research. Steve’s parting shot is a special issue on “Radical Filmmaking” (Vol. 7.3), which will be released shortly, after which he is standing down from the Editorial Board to concentrate on exciting research projects.
Our current rolling issue (Vol. 8.1), is now open for submissions, we will be featuring the shortlisted entries of the BAFTSS Practice Award 2018 (Vol. 8.2) and look out for our forthcoming special issue on “Digital Ecologies and the Anthropocene” (Vol. 8.3), edited by Alex Nevill, with Charlie Tweed (Bath Spa University) and Joshua McNamara (University of Melbourne), in the new year.
