[ecrea] Screen Cultures Conference - Birmingham City University

Mon Jun 11 23:44:11 GMT 2018

Birmingham City University’s Screen Cultures Research Cluster is delighted to welcome you to our inaugural Screen Cultures Conference, to be held at BCU on Tuesday 10 July 2018.

*Prof Lucia Nagib* (University of Reading) will present a keynote paper on ‘Beyond Representation: Feminist Mode of Production in Recent Brazilian Cinema’. This will be followed by a series of stimulating specialist papers on contemporary research in Screen Cultures. Subjects addressed are wide-ranging, and include novel data-driven investigations of Bollywood cinema and an exploration of the transnational dimensions of early Hungarian film. Alongside examinations of national and international screen cultures papers will also explore questions of identity position (including race, gender and sexuality), memory, the archive, affect and fan communities, among other topics. We are thrilled to be able to facilitate these presentations and the day promises to offer a fascinating insight into cutting edge, contemporary research within the field.

They are likely to be of interest both to senior colleagues and scholars in the early stages of their career.

Please register your attendance via our Eventbrite page here <>. We have organised a conference dinner at Gusto <> and would appreciate an early indication of interest to establish numbers.

Please do also state any dietary and access requirements when you make your booking.

All enquiries should be directed to our dedicated email address: *(screenculturesbcu /at/*

We look forward to seeing you at BCU!

About the keynote speaker:

*Prof Lucia Nagib* is Professor in Film at the University of Reading, where she directs the Centre for Film Aesthetics and Cultures. Prof Nagib is the PI of the AHRC-FAPESP funded project, 'Towards an Intermedial History of Brazilian Cinema: Exploring Intermediality as a Historiographic Method' (short title: IntermIdia), which brings together scholars from the University of Reading (UoR) and the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), as well as 3 PDRAs, combining expertise in cinematic intermediality, Brazilian cinema, film history, film theory, film and music, film and theatre, film and visual arts, and film and popular culture. More details here <>. As well as cinematic intermediality, Prof Nagib specialises in**world cinema theory, history and geography, and has published widely on these topics. Her most recent single authored book is /World Cinema and the Ethics of Realism/ (2011), in which she adopts a positive, democratic and inclusive approach to film studies, rejecting the usual binary division that posits world cinema against Hollywood, and instead defines a polycentric phenomenon with peaks of creation in different places and periods.

/The Screen Cultures Research Cluster forms part of the Birmingham Centre for Media and Culture Research, based with the School of Media in Faculty of Arts, Design and Media, at Birmingham City University. For more information on BCMCR go here <>./
