University of Pittsburgh, October 18-19, 2013

Deadline: June 14, 2013

If obsolescence is both a condition and consequence of media culture, how can we approach and articulate the relationship between oldness and newness, obsolescence and innovation, with regard to changes in cinematic form, technology, and scholarship? This conference reconsiders obsolescence as a strategic anachronism, focusing not only on technological formats but also on genres, critical approaches, and texts. To address the allure of the “now” which pervades approaches to everything from Blu-ray technology to Speculative Realism, we affirm the need to turn back in order to imagine what lies ahead.
