Last month in the Markers of Authenticity Seminar Series we enjoyed a paper by Dr Ilona Hongisto on ‘True fabulations: The act of creation in documentary cinema’ in our seminar dedicated to creative authenticity. Ilona will be running a fantastic symposium with Dr Tom Murray next Friday (Nov. 10) at Macquarie University called Creative Uses of the Archive which will explore the uses and misuses of archival documents in documentary film, historical research, anthropology and non-fiction writing. More information about the symposium, keynotes and program is available on our Related Events page.
Earlier this year, Dr Adam Hochman (Philosophy) presented in our Markers of Authenticity seminar ‘On authenticity and race’ (May, 2017). Those of you in attendance and those who couldn’t make it will be excited to hear that Adam’s thoughts about the failure of race to be a viable social category have now been published as ‘Replacing Race: Interactive Constructionism about Racialized Groups‘, ERGO 4 (2017) 61–92, which has been made available on Adam’s academia.edu page. If you haven’t yet got the opportunity to hear Adam speak on these issues (and even if you have) make sure to get yourself a copy.
