[UPDATE-NEW DATES] CFP: Repetitons, Permutations, Becoming -- SFSU Cinema Studies Conference [Oct 22-24, 2015, San Francisco, CA

updated: 
Thursday, April 9, 2015 - 12:00pm
Cinema Studies Graduate Association / San Francisco State University

In our rapidly shifting culture, what defines the contemporary moment is fluid and impossible to pin down. This conference will look at the relations between newness, sameness, fluidity, and change in cinema and cinematic technologies from all eras. The cinematic apparatus itself is a technology of repetition and replication, and the effects of postmodern culture are marked by self-replication, simulation, and mediation. Postmodernism is about the now, and borrows from the surfaces of history while losing the history itself. Cinema and the cinematic is increasingly marked by intermediality of both culture and "text" and constant expansion of what these terms can mean.
