Unibz Panel: Crossovers 2
(Deutsch) Bozen, University
Crossovers: Films as Tools for Social Research
‘Crossover’ is a term used in film and fiction to describe situations in which two or more characters, ambience, or objects from different fictional contexts, merge and interact in a novel setting. It is like a superhero falling for madame Bovary, or, for that matter, the social sciences engaging films as tools for research and dissemination.
Crossovers will overlap with the Alpenländische Kooperation Workshop (ZeLIG School for Documentary & IDM – South Tyrol Film Commission) and the BOLZANO FILM FESTIVAL BOZEN, an international event attracting filmmakers from all over Europe, creating a crossover of populations, ideas, and languages. Discussion — academic and non-academic — will address, for one thing, filmmaking as a research tool and a means to teach the social sciences.
