[eccr] Laura Mulvey Conference at Cambridge University

Fri Apr 15 18:17:09 GMT 2005

>The Politics of 'Visual Pleasure' 30 Years On: The Work of Laura Mulvey
>Saturday 18th June 2005, Emmanuel College, Cambridge
>2005 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of Laura Mulvey's
>seminal essay 'Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema', which polemically
>tracked the gendered nature of spectatorship in Hollywood cinema.  In this
>one-day conference, we acknowledge the importance of Mulvey's work, which
>became extraordinarily influential in that rich interdisciplinary terrain
>where ideas from post-structuralism flooded into film, literary and cultural
>The conference will consider issues such as: how has Mulvey's work
>subsequently developed? What is its legacy today and for the future? Do its
>insights migrate well to new objects, such as the soundtrack, or African
>cinema? Does the psychoanalytic core of Mulvey's work stand the test of
>time, in light of historical and empirical studies of spectatorship?
>Among the speakers are Laura Mulvey, Diane Negra, Mandy Merck, Annette Kuhn,
>Emma Wilson and Andrew Webber, with Colin MacCabe, Henrietta Moore, Juliet
>Mitchell, Mary Jacobus, David Trotter and others as discussants and session
>The conference will be of interest to scholars and students from film, media
>and English studies, from gender, cultural and music studies, to
>sociologists and anthropologists of media and culture, as well as to those
>engaged with psychoanalytic cultural theory.
>For details of how to register, please see
