The image-sound-memory workshop
The Image-sound-memory workshop (ISM) aims to further the study of visual, oral and audio-visual history in the modern and contemporary periods within the LARHRA research centre.
The Image-sound-memory workshop (ISM) aims to encourage research on visual, oral and audio-visual history in the modern and contemporary periods within the LARHRA research centre, and to contribute to the elaboration of methodologies aimed at studying primary sources in this field. The workshop is able to build on the experience gained in the creation of a series of historical and pedagogical exhibits for the Rhône-Alpes region (http://fresques.ina.fr/rhone-alpes/; https://labexitem.fr/projet/montagnes-magiques-100-ans-de-tourisme-alpin...). The workshop organises a monthly seminar, “Arts-Images-Média”, open to all, run by L. Baridon, E. Cohen et A.-M. Granet-Abisset, on the subject of the treatment of the arts (image and sound) in film and television. (For further details: firstname.lastname@example.org). The ISM workshop is involved in several of LARHRA’s research projects, for example on Photography and missionary work; Television in the 1970s; Educational films; and Writing history in sound and images.
An international PCIS research programme, “France-Brésil Patrimoines-Images-médias-identités” (PIMI 2015-2017), has brought together three teams of researchers in France and three in Brazil. The PIMI project aims to examine comparatively the processes of according heritage status to television and other media archives in France and Brazil since the 1980s. A number of meetings of the researchers working on the project have been organised in the two countries. Among the themes studied by the team are the processes linked to granting heritage status for audio-visual archives; television genres; television narrative; and television production techniques with regard to testimony.
