"Geographies of Film Theory," Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies & Screen Studies Group, University of London, June 26-28, 2008.

The symposium will trace the contexts in France, Italy and Germany between the wars in which film theory was first articulated; it will then follow the reception and reconfiguration of film theory in key, mainly non-European, cultural and political contexts. The collaboration between the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies and the Screen Studies Group has enabled an original approach to the complex intellectual and aesthetic relations between influential European cultural discourses and ‘world’ film theory. Keynote speakers:
  • Francesco Casetti (Professor, Universita Cattolica, Milano)
  • Mikhail Iampolski (Professor, New York University)
  • Kim Soyoung (Professor, Korean National University of Arts)
  • Ashish Rajadhyaksha (Senior Fellow, Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore)
