[Commlist] CFP: B-Film PGR Symposium 'Glocal and Regional Cinema'

Mon Feb 01 15:20:15 GMT 2021

*Glocal and Regional Cinema*
*4^th * *B-FILM PGR SYMPOSIUM*  - University of Birmingham
*(Online event on Zoom, 5 March 2021)*
Call for papers

B-Film, the University of Birmingham’s interdisciplinary research centre of film scholars, opens its PGR Symposium on *‘Glocal and Regional Cinema’* to all postgraduate researchers. Whether by exploring regional variations within individual nations or the role played by the local in global cinema, this symposium strives to put diverse manifestations of cinematic modes, genres, and styles in dialogue with one another.

This event is aimed at bringing PGRs from different academic institutions together to discuss their research in a welcoming and supportive environment. The initiative also intends to stimulate reflection on glocal and regional cinema in order to facilitate exchanges of ideas and encourage different approaches to the topics covered. The proceedings will take place in English and papers should be no more than *20 minutes* in length.

Keynote Speaker: *Dr Alex Marlow-Mann* from the University of Kent.

Dr Alex Marlow-Mann is a specialist in European cinema, with particular expertise in the cinema of Italy. He has published widely on regional cinemas, the politics of popular genre cinema, cognitive theory, film and emotion, and film preservation. His research interests include the distinctions and intersections between national/ transnational/ regional cinema and ‘popular’/ ‘art’ cinema, interests which are developed in /The Routledge Companion to World Cinema/, which he co-edited, and the associated Routledge series /Remapping World Cinema: Regional Tensions and Global Transformations/. He is currently completing a monograph on /The Political Thriller in Its Global Context/, forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press.
