Book Description

12 Mar 2014

Documentary remains a vital and dynamic media form, one that has persisted through decades of change in patterns of media production, distribution and reception, from its early conception in silent filmmaking, through 'new' media such as television, to the current explosion of digital platforms. New generations of documentary filmmakers, multimedia designers, online curators and social media aggregators are exploring the challenges and opportunities of a digital environment characterised as collaborative, participatory, and interactive. This book provides a unique collection of recent research into the ways in which these digital producers are adopting the 'documentary project' across digital platforms, developing new documentary practices and providing distinctive new ways for audiences to engage with reality.

Product Description


"New Documentary Ecologies has the potential to be a landmark publication. In this articulation of the revolution in both the documentary form and documentary studies, the buzzwords 'proliferation' 'sharing' and 'access' are invoked in such a way as to demand attention from scholars from adjacent fields such as media studies, journalism, new media studies and cinema studies." - Deane Williams, Monash University, Australia

About the Author

Kate Nash is Lecturer in Media and Communications Studies at the University of Leeds, UK. Having formally worked as a documentary maker, she is currently studying how audiences interact with and interpret interactive documentary. She has also published on documentary ethics, particularly the relationship between documentary makers and participants.

Craig Hight is Associate Professor in Screen and Media Studies at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. His current research focuses on the relationships between digital media technologies and documentary practice, especially the variety of factors shaping online documentary cultures.

Catherine Summerhayes' thesis, 'Film As Cultural Performance' focused on the concept and practice of theatrical performance in relation to film. Her work has been published in national and international journals and anthologies, and in 2012 she convened the 'Visible Evidence Conference in Documentary Studies' XIX. Her monograph, The Moving Images of Tracey Moffatt, was published in September 2007.
