Landscapes in television drama series

  • Aarhus University, Denmark Aarhus Denmark (map)

Between 28-29 September 2017 Aarhus University hosts a conference on "Landscapes in television drama series". Registration for the conference open April 1.

Excerpt from the conference homepage:

In contrast to film and literature, cinematic geography and landscapes in television drama series is a fairly new and emerging research field. Many recent television drama series include a significant use of places and landscapes including panorama aesthetics, cityscapes, snowscapes and seascapes. This tendency is related to new aesthetic standards for television drama series in general, new screen technologies, location as production value, and a general fascination and commodification of places and landscapes in global consumer cultures.
Furthermore, to understand the aesthetic, cultural, political and economic aspects of cinematic landscapes in television drama, we need to develop perspectives across disciplines such as geography, art history, media and creative industries.
We are happy to invite researchers to join us for this event where we gather international leading scholars within the field. And – Thursday night we will have a (terroir) beer tasting. Welcome to Aarhus!
