>Martin Barker
>>The Commonwealth Fund conference on American History of 2003 will be held
>>at University College London on 26th-28th June. The theme of the
>>conference will be 'American Cinema and Everyday Life.' Up to 60 papers on
>>the social experience of film-going will be discussed. Among the issues
>>considered will be: how did cinema become a part of everyday life for so
>>many Americans? What was the nature of filmic exhibition? How did the
>>experience of movie-going differ at different times and places within the
>>United States? How were audiences themselves constituted in social and
>>economic terms? To what extent was the experience of film-going itself
>>shaped and influenced by such factors as the gender, race, class, and
>>ethnicity of members of the audience? How important to film-goers were the
>>physical and social contexts of movie-going? How did spectators create
>>meanings for themselves out of the films they viewed? How, if at all, did
>>the influence of such constructed meanings extend beyond the immediate
>>context of film-going, affecting aspects of spectators' own lives? Did
>>foreign audiences respond in the same way as American audiences to
>>American cinema?
