The Irish Screen Studies Seminar was founded in 2003. Originally known as the Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar, the event was developed by scholars at Trinity College Dublin and Ulster University as a cross-border initiative to connect postgraduate and early career researchers in screen studies throughout this island and beyond. For more than twenty years, the seminar has been hosted by a variety of third-level institutions in Ireland, North and South, and has provided a research platform for emerging scholars who have gone on to play key international roles in screen scholarship, industry, and popular culture.
The Seminar provides a unique platform for the presentation of new work – research, practice, and research through practice – by scholars and filmmakers from third-level institutions on the island of Ireland, as well as those working on Irish screen-related topics in other universities and colleges worldwide. The seminar is aimed at academic researchers and practitioners in film and screen cultures in the broadest sense, including audio, film, television, digital media, transmedia, video games, and related interdisciplinary activity. The ISSS actively promotes the exchange of ideas and offers postgraduate and early career researchers and practitioners an ideal opportunity to present evolving screen-related research and practice in a constructive and encouraging forum.
