    *Call for Papers IJFMA Vol 5 No 2 (2020)
    GEECT Special issue: **Mapping Artistic Research in Film*


    International Journal of Film and Media Arts
    Vol 5 No 2 (2020)
    GEECT Special issue: /Mapping Artistic Research in Film
    /Issue editors: /Manuel José Damásio & Jyoti Mistry/

    Artistic Research is the proposition of artistic practice and
    systematic reflection through art itself. It is an epistemic inquiry
    directed towards advancing knowledge, insight, understanding, and
    competences that are explored from within inside the discipline even
    though it mobilizes inter-disciplinary and cross disciplinary
    approaches to research enquiry. Furthermore, artistic research
    combines artistic methods with methods from other research
    traditions facilitating many dimensions of research
    about/for/through art and draws from research strategies from the
    empirical sciences and the humanities.  Artistic practice and its
    focus on research must be distinguished from artistic development
    where artistic research typically supports the further development
    of art practice but aims at topics of enquiry with a broader
    socio-political, cultural and economic significance.

    While artistic research (AR) has been acknowledged for over two
    decades as a significant knowledge base for education in the arts in
    Higher Arts Education Institutions (HAEIs), its import in film
    education and media arts has only gained increased momentum over the
    last several years.  To this end, AR has become a relevant and
    urgent topic due both to external processes (i.e. accreditation) and
    internal pressures (i.e. staff capacitation) making it increasingly
    relevant for film schools.

    A special issue on artistic research in film schools is an
    opportunity to reflect on the multivalent challenges, opportunities,
    potentialities and possibilities for collaborations that AR affords
    film schools. The special issue aims to also encourage reflections
    through case studies of AR projects and PhD supervision experience
    in film research and film education.

    deal with but are not limited to the topics of:
