Flow34: Virtual Cinema

Flow34: Virtual Cinema and Podcasts

A stream for innovative audio and/or visual contributions.

Flow34 - Edition 2023

Flow34 aims to stimulate the use of a broader range of modes for the communication of academic knowledge, complementing conference papers and oral presentations with creative audio and/or visual work. The stream features videos and podcasts that integrate academic and aesthetic dimensions, and that use sound and/or image creatively to communicate academic knowledge.

The videos and podcasts remain accessible online.

The Flow34 works are arranged in five thematic clusters: 1. Logics of representation, 2. Death, religion, and militarism, 3. Identity, gender, and ethnicity, 4. Ageing and Ageism and 5. Space: Transformations and Boundaries.

Read about them and watch the videos below.
