CTI Textual Studies

Computer-Assisted Film and Drama Studies

St Anne's College, Oxford University, 17 March 1997

Will it ever be as easy to download digitized film as it is to download electronic texts? How can multimedia help in the study of performance? Who and what is presently available to assist those who wish to use computers for the analysis of film and drama? This one-day conference is designed to introduce a range of available resources and current projects relevant to the use of computers in the teaching and research of film studies and dramatic performance. The speakers have been deliberately drawn from both film and drama studies. There will also be the opportunity during the day to view a selection of digital resources and to chat informally with the speakers.
