SFSU Cinema Studies Graduate Association Conference
  "SPACES OF CONFLICT"
  In the aim of expanding the dialogue around cinema, we are interested in exploring critical approaches to film that push beyond narrative and character-centric methods, specifically those addressing issues of space within and without the film frame.
   
  The intent of this conference is to focus on how space is investigated, portrayed or enacted in cinema with an attention to the relationship between space and conflict. Some possible areas of discussion could include (but are not limited to):
  ê Geographic conflict zones (cultural, political, environmental)
  ê Rural/urban space (e.g., film noir, musicals, etc.)
