The University of Notre Dame has partnered with the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) and King’s College London (KCL) to present the summer symposium, “London, Cinema and Media Gateway,” July 18-20, 2019.
This symposium will bring together scholars for three days of discussion about London’s rich history and complex future in relation to cinema and media studies. The symposium explores the meaning and import of London in film and media studies as a production center for film and TV production, as location, and as representation. It considers London’s role as a hub for distribution and global media flows, and also for film theory and criticism. The symposium will address the broad span of London’s history, from early film forward, as well as the changing landscape and meaning of London in the context of Brexit.
