[ecrea] Texture in Film Symposium

Thu Feb 07 09:12:42 GMT 2013

I’m delighted to announce the provisional programme for the Centre for Film Studies symposium ‘Texture in Film’, 9th March, 2013, University of St Andrews.

Registration for the event is now open:

This symposium will seek to explore ways in which thinking about texture can reinvigorate discussion of film form across a variety of cinematic contexts, with particular emphasis on approaches drawn from understandings of texture originating in study of visual art, music and literature.

The day will close with a roundtable event with an interdisciplinary panel, designed to extend the discussion of the day.

Panelists:  Alex Clayton (University of Bristol), Sarah Dillon (University of St Andrews), Ian Garwood (University of Glasgow)&  Alistair Rider (University of St Andrews)

Please contact me if you have any queries about the event ((lfd2 /at/ Please forward to your networks, especially those in other arts and humanities disciplines who might be interested in this.
