CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Abstracts are invited for a film studies symposium on
aspects of contemporary narrative and documentary
film. The nature of the cinematic medium grants
filmmakers a power to portray cultures and to reflect
identities through the audiovisual image. How is
cinema used as an effective tool of investigation to
represent certain realities, and certain identities,
to domestic and international audiences?

 

 

Areas of investigation might include:

 

- Representations of
masculinity/femininity

- Body and gender

- Liminal identities

- Race and ethnicity; regional, national,
trans-national identities

- Philosophy in, and of film –
philosophical reflections on the medium & aspects of
the medium

 

 

 

Confirmed Key Note Speaker:

 

Professor Stella Bruzzi, University of Warwick (author
of New Documentary, Bringing Up Daddy: Fatherhood and
Masculinity in Postwar Hollywood)
