Film as Film Today: On the Criticism and Theory of V. F. Perkins

updated: 
Friday, November 24, 2017 - 4:03am
University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 16, 2018

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.

PANEL ON POETIC DIGRESSION for ESSE 2018 (www.esse2018brno.org)

From the parecbasis or ‘stepping away’ of Quintilian to the meandering twists and turns of the ‘loiterly’ work, this panel investigates the many and various modes of digression in poetry, figuring digression as a means through which we can rethink poetic effect - poetry’s grammatical, rhetorical, formal, philosophical, lyric and/or narrative power or force.

We invite proposals for conference papers exploring poetic digression and its effects. Topics for discussion might include, but are by no means limited to the following:
