On Monday 19 November, Catherine Grant, Professor of Digital Media and Screen Studies at Birkbeck, delivered the 2018 David Vilaseca Memorial Lecture. The lecture is held annually in memory of our late colleague David Vilaseca (1964-2010), who was Professor of Hispanic Studies and Critical Theory at Royal Holloway.

Professor Grant spoke on 'Screen studies as device?: Working through the video essay'.

She explored the ways in which experimental modes of creative practice – in particular, the techniques and forms of digital remix and found footage-based video essays – can be put to the service of a project of de-habitualizing film and moving image studies. During the lecture Professor Grant showed and discussed her own videographic experiments.
