To the media and conflict interchange

(17-20 October 2016)

Exploring the interchange between media, conflict and the environment

About the event

The Media and Conflict Interchange is organised by The School of Media, Design and Technology in conjunction with Peace Studies at The University of Bradford. This event is designed to explore the relationships between media forms (such as documentary and fiction) and conflict.  It’s a chance to explore the themes presented in a safe and encouraging environment, even though they may sometimes be difficult and upsetting.  Basically, we screen films, host talks, discussions and workshops .


The event is mostly free, just turn up at Student Central SC0.51 at The University of Bradford at the times listed in the schedule.

The final film screening and panel on Thursday evening (Eye in The Sky) is only free to University students and staff however.  You will need to collect tickets from the National Media Museum to gain entry for this.  Show your student or staff cards for a ticket or pay as ‘normal customer’ if you are not a University of Bradford student or staff member.

Speakers and Debates

Talks accompany the screenings from experts in the field of conflict resolution and media analysis. Panels and question and answer sessions follow each film.  Take a look at the Schedule for more information about the screenings.  This year features Professor Paul Rogers, Professor Caroline Hughes and several more high profile academics.  See our list of speakers.
