Refugee Journeys: Multisensory Processes of Place-Attachment in Nelson, Aotearoa New Zealand
Amber Kale, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
In my PhD research I use interviews, city navigation journeys, map-making activities, group discussions, and a multisensory art exhibition to explore former Burmese refugee women's multisensory and affective experiences of displacement and place-attachment in Nelson, New Zealand. Through this research, my thesis aims to critically discuss how processes of multisensory place-attachment could enhance emotional and social wellbeing, inform refugee resettlement outcomes, and contribute to an emerging body of international research exploring sensory refugee journeys.
Technologies of vision and the absent presence of race
Ildikó Plájás, University of Amsterdam
Framed by my PhD research focusing on the production of the ‘phenotypic Other’ in Europe by different technologies of vision, this experimental film argues that montage can be used not only as a trope but as an artistic-scholarly intervention to bring about the ‘absent presence’ of race.

Emplaced Interaction from Audio Installation to Extended Reality
Robert Eagle, University of the West of England
Beyond linear documentary film, immersive and interactive media can help ethnographers grapple with ways of representing an ethnography of the body and senses. This paper presents examples of recent location-based installations that require the audience to experience interactive documentary collectively through kinesis and locomotion.
X-TREM and QUADRANT: From Stage to Screen
Marta Arjona & Silvia Robert
This presentation talks about the experience of creating dance short films with the students of DansAra Sarral (a dance school in a 1500 habitants village) through choreographies that were first created for the stage. The first experience was with X-TREM (selected in 23 international festivals) and the newest one with QUADRANT, that has won a 1st prize in Brasil. The presentation will explain the work that was done in order to transform both choreographies from stage to the screen, because the audiovisual format gives you the chance of directing the public’s eye wherever you want.
