On Friday 4 May, Northumbria's Media and Film & Television subject groups hosted their second annual workshop for PhD students and Early Career Researchers. Organised by Dr Johnny Walker (with programming assistance from Dr Steve Jones and Erin Wiegand), and entitled Horror, Cult and Exploitation Media II, the workshop comprised ten papers from scholars at different stages of their research, in addition to a presentation on academic publishing from James Campbell of Intellect Books.
As the event's official web page (designed by Erin Wiegand) makes clear, issues under discussion were highly diverse (from interventions into media history and industry studies to cultural theory), speaking both to the field's variety and, perhaps most crucially, its present buoyancy within academia.

Until next year...
