In the beginning was the Word …
Much has been said and written about Stanley Kubrick. But not everything. Nearly two decades on since the release of his posthumous final film, Eyes Wide Shut (1999), it is only now, with the donation of his archive to the University of Arts London in 2007, that we are beginning to have our eyes opened to new perspectives and understandings of Kubrick and his work. The empirical potential that the archive offers has been highlighted in recent years in the research by one of this conference's keynote speakers, Peter Krämer, who has broken open the debates around authorial agency, collaboration, adaptation and production contexts.
