Wunderkino 4: Visions of House and Home CFP: April 20, 2014 [UPDATE]

updated: 
Monday, April 7, 2014 - 11:27am
full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Historic Film Summer Symposium/Thursday, July 24 – Saturday, July 26, 2014/Bucksport, Maine USA
contact email: 

From the very earliest film of in-laws cavorting in the Roundhay Garden (1888), domestic settings have provided the backdrop and often the unintentional subject of amateur film. The organizers of the 2014 Northeast Historic Film (NHF) Summer Symposium invite proposals featuring studies of amateur and non-theatrical films that examine house, home, and visions of domesticity. "Wunderkino 4: Visions of House and Home" focuses on understanding how amateur and non-theatrical films offer insight into daily life, domesticity, and the quotidian activity that has often been dismissed as mise en scène. How does the performance of domesticity size or resize the frame? What activities define house and home on film?
