"Circulations of/in Cinema" June 13-15 2013

updated: 
Friday, March 23, 2012 - 12:51pm
University of Toulouse II, France

In 1958, André Bazin asked: "What is cinema?" One of his objectives was to define the ontological specificity of the cinematographic art. In the following decades, this fundamental question was taken up and amplified. There were many answers to that initial question: most of them focused on the relation between screen and spectator. Today, in an era of digital images, with the democratization of cinematographic practices – in terms both of production and reception – it seems important to return to a definition of cinema in its technical specificity. One could approach the subject from three angles:

'Nobler imaginings and mightier struggles': Octavia Hill and the remaking of British society (27–28 September 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 12:22pm
National Trust, the University of Oxford, and Octavia Housing

In September 2012 an interdisciplinary conference at Sutton House in London will mark the centenary of the death of Octavia Hill. Best known for her housing reform, Hill was also instrumental in founding such diverse present-day institutions as the National Trust, the Chartered Institute of Housing, the Army Cadet force, and Family Action (originally the Charity Organisation Society). In a political climate which once again emphasizes the kind of privately-financed social action that Hill applauded, and where the preservation of open space and the provision of homes are again contentious, a re-evaluation of her life and legacy seems particularly timely.
