Transnational East Asian Cinema (Upcoming symposium) (Southampton)


A one day symposium sponsored by Screen, hosted by the University of Southampton with Goldsmiths, University of London and the University of Hong Kong

The symposium will explore the relationship between cinematic representations and transnational cultural exchange, centred on one of the most active areas of cinematic activity over the past decade - East Asian cinema. It encompasses a broad range of topics that reflect upon how academia, filmmakers and the film industry have responded to the effects of globalisation, and the ways in which representations are read through the differing transnational contexts that exist between Asia and the West. Beyond cinema, our event will create a significant dialogue whose relevance relates to important issues surrounding globalisation and intercultural communication between East and West, as well as the status and function of Film Studies in different cultural contexts.

Confirmed Speakers: Prof. Tim Bergfelder (University of Southampton); Prof. Chris Berry (Goldsmiths College, London); Dr. Esther Cheung (University of Hong Kong); Dr. Gina Marchetti (University of Hong Kong); Dr. Julian Stringer (University of Nottingham); Dr. Isolde Standish (SOAS, University of London); Dr. Rayna Denison (University of East Anglia); Dr. Mark Morris (University of Cambridge).
