Dr Giorgos Dimitriadis, Part-time Lecturer of the International Faculty, CITY College English Studies Department, participated in two Conferences in Poland and delivered presentations on theory of cinema and visual perceptionThe first Conference, Mind-Media-Narrative: Exploring the Nexus of Transmedial and Cognitive Narratologies, was held in Warsaw (June 20-22) and was organised by the Warsaw Transmedial Narratology Research Group in collaboration with the University of Warsaw. The theme of the conference was narratology across media, with special interest in the cognitive context of narrative theory. Dr Dimitriadis delivered a presentation titled “Just the Facts, Ma’am: An Economical Model for Theorizing the Perception of Visual Narrative in Digital Cinema”; the presentation proposed the application of a cognitive model for the audience’s perception of cinematic storytelling. Featuring a theme that spans across various media and eras, the conference was a great opportunity for scholars of diverse fields to exchange views and latest research findings in narrative theory.

The second Conference, Expanding Universes: Exploring Transmedial & Transfictional Ways of World-building, was held in Krakow (September23-25) and was organised by Facta Ficta Research Center and the Faculty of Polish Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. The main focus of this conference was theory of worldmaking across various media and the implications for audiences as well as cultural and media theory. The talk that Dr Dimitriadis delivered was titled “Evaluating the Coherence of a Cinematic Universe as a Prerequisite for Worldmaking in Digital Cinema”. The presentation was based on an innovative approach to the theory of fictional worlds, separating worldmaking as a cognitive process from the world-building practices of the cinema industry.
