International Conference on Interrogating Disability Studies: Literature, Culture, Performance

Though the roots of neglect and discrimination against persons with disabilities can be historically traced, the voices of this critical segment of society have largely remained unproblemitized in academic discourses. The traditional medical and welfare-based approaches have often overlooked the significant impact of disability on the socio-cultural and psychological lives of persons with disabilities both as individuals and groups. Further, till recently, most academic discussions relating to disability paradigms have tended to revolve around legal provisions, support systems etc.

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.
