Histories of Film History Conference

Tags: , , , ,

From 13-15 December 2018, Philipps-University Marburg hosts the international conference Histories of Film History: Materials and Methods. The conference is organised by Yvonne Zimmermann and NECSUS editorial board member Malte Hagener. Histories of Film History aims at providing insight into the fabrication of film history and discourses on its theories and methods in the past, in order to contribute to a better understanding and critical reconsideration of film history today. The conference proposes a transnational, entangled, and culturally-diverse approach to the archaeology of film history, while paying specific attention to persons, objects, infrastructures, regions, institutional fields, and events hitherto overlooked. An overview of the entire conference program can be found online.
