Post-Doc Fellowship in Photo&Film. Leuven, Belgium. Deadline: March 15, 2012.

Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium), May 01, 2012
Application deadline: Mar 15, 2012


Within the research project ‘Photofilmic images in contemporary art and
visual culture’ the University of Louvain (Université catholique de
Louvain, UCL), the Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography (LGC)
and the FNRS (Research Foundation – Wallonia/Brussels) invite
applications for a two years full time post-doctoral position.

The objective of the project is to understand the impact of photofilmic
structures in the production, the function and the perception of images
within contemporary art and visual culture. With Photofilmic images are
meant images that are generated on the basis of both photographic and
filmic processes. Consequently, they mingle different temporal, spatial
and perceptional realities. In this sense, they are transitional images
fluctuating between categories which were once attributed separately to
photography or film, such as stasis and movement, past and presence,
composition and narration. With the advent of digital technology,
photofilmic images are getting increasingly widespread in recent years.
Imovie, photosynth, AutoStitch and PhantaMorph for example are computer
software which allow to create animated images on the basis of
photographs. As such techniques are getting more and more important in
different domains of image production in popular culture and the visual
arts, the impact of photo-filmic images on our visual culture will have
wide reaching consequences for our use, our perception and our
understanding of images and thus for our view on the world given the
fact that our access to that what we call reality is to a large extent
mediated through images. For this reason, the project suggests a study
of photofilmic images, which goes beyond well-established frontiers
between the various disciplines and sectors where such images occur and
where they are discussed, in order to understand how exactly images
operate within our contemporary media society. This interdisciplinary
approach considers different domains such as visual art, cinema, and
popular culture and diverse academic disciplines such as film studies,
photography theory, art history, visual culture studies, and media
theory. Therefore, the following questions are fundamental: What
technologies are used in which contexts and for what purpose? What for
exactly have they been invented and how are they diffused and used in
different contexts? How they are perceived according to these different
contexts and uses?

The successful candidate is expected to advance his own research, and
to contribute to the activities of the project (publications,
organization of conferences, seminars, construction of image data base,
international contacts).

The salary of the post-doctoral position is based on the standards of
the Belgian National Science Foundation.

A PhD (completion not exceeding 6 years) in one of the following
Contemporary Art History – Visual Culture Studies – Media studies –
Film studies
Residence in Belgium is required.

Applicants are required to send a letter of motivation, a detailed CV,
two academic references, and a short account (max. 750 words) of their
research project as PDFs by e-mail to: Prof. dr. Alexander
Streitberger, Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), FIAL – Place
Blaise Pascal 1, bte L3.03.13, B – 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve

The closing date for applications is Thursday 15 March 2012.

The successful candidate will start on 1 Mai 2012.

The Amnesty Media Awards were established in 1992 to celebrate the best in human rights journalism. From print and broadcast journalism to photographic and digital content, they recognise the vital role journalists play, and the serious risks they face, in highlighting injustice around the world.


The awards honour established journalists and photographers as well as rising stars.

Winners in 2011 included Channel 4 News, More 4, CNN International, BBC Radio 4, the Independent, the Guardian, GQ Magazine, Marie Claire, Guardian Weekend Magazine and the Sunday Times Magazine.

Television news continues to play a vital role in keeping human rights issues in the public eye. We’re looking for a news item (or up to three news items if part of a series), broadcast predominantly to a UK audience or  hosted online.

Magazines (two awards)

A vividly written and illustrated magazine article can have a profound effect on its readers, giving an in-depth assessment of an issue in an eye-catching and unforgettable way. We are looking for an article, or series of up to three articles, published in a consumer magazine, or a magazine-style weekly or monthly UK newspaper supplement.


Nations and regions
