Every day hundreds of people travel back and forth between southern countries, including Australia, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, New Zealand, and South Africa; and with people travel culture, experiences, memories and images. The Southern Screens project takes on a transversal South-South approach to the study of visual culture in transnational, transcultural and geopolitical contexts. It seeks to create conditions for the generation, sharing and circulation of new knowledge that is both southern and about the South as a specific kind of material and imaginary territory (or territories). It does so through the study of the southern hemisphere's screen cultures, addressing the broad spectrum of cultural expression in both traditional and new screen media, including film, television, video, digital, interactive, and online and portable technologies. Southern countries scholars contribute to this bilingual (English and Spanish), interdisciplinary symposium, addressing the theme 'Transnational zones and transcultural histories on the screens of the South' through applications of media studies, cultural studies and social science methodologies to discussions of screen culture.
