What is the relevance of teaching theory in the era of globalization, and what is at stake?

Analysis and appreciation of the artistic functions and contributions of sung letters in musical plays and operas. In these days of e mail, Twitter, etc., it can be hard to remember that, at one time, correspondence was done more slowly by letter, and that the reading and/or writing of letters was often an important part of theatrical events. You are invited to submit proposals that explore this phenomenon. 250 word abstracts by 20 March 2018; Mail abstracts to Shoshana Knapp (email@example.com).

V. F. Perkins (1936-2016) was a foundational figure in the history of British film education, a pioneering theorist of the medium, and among the most insightful and eloquent writers on the art of film. His historical significance for the fields of film criticism and film study is uncontested. However, while Perkins’ work – particularly the seminal Film as Film (1972) – still influences certain strands of scholarship, its contemporary relevance for critics, theorists, and students is presently underappreciated. This symposium is dedicated to revaluating Perkins’ critical methods and arguments by exploring their continued utility for those studying film, television, audiovisual media, and aesthetics today.
