Event description

Description

Released in the summer blockbuster season of 1993, Jurassic Park (Spielberg 1993) achieved an opening weekend box office of $50m in the US and is currently estimated to be the 24th highest grossing film of all time. An adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel of the same name, the years since its release have seen the movie become both a cultural phenomenon that has achieved multiple cinematic re-releases and a transmedia franchise that includes (to date) four sequels as well as multiple computer games and a theme park ride. The franchise has, however, also had far-reaching cultural impact by impacting upon how we think about broader issues such as dinosaurs, the prehistoric era, and those that study this.

This one-day symposium, hosted by the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University, seeks to bring together scholars from disciplines including (but not limited to) Media and Cultural Studies, Film Studies, Literary Studies and the Natural Sciences to critically interrogate Jurassic Park’s multiple legacies and its role in shaping the palaeontological imagination in popular culture.
