Free event. All welcome.
This symposium will explore questions around the state, place and forms of contemporary cine-feminisms.
Round tables, panels, papers, workshops and screenings will explore questions about the contemporary gender, women and feminism on screen. While the (re)newed interest in women’s filmmaking has been enabled by film feminist debates to what extent and in what ways does – or can – it create opportunities for feminist teaching and research in the academy?
