Description

European Cinema: Perspectives on post-democracy and the crisis of the European project

Part of the Sadler Seminar series "Remapping World Cinema for the Digital Age"

Seminar organised by Dr Angelos Koutsourakis

Starting with the Euro-crisis in 2008, the viability of the European project has been called into question following the Brexit vote in 2016. In this workshop we intend to politicise the conversation by looking at the ways that European cinema has resisted/challenged a set of structural deficiencies and historical changes that may account for the present political impasse in Europe. The workshop also explores ways that cinema and cultural institutions e.g. film festivals can act as mitigators of social, and political conflict in the present historical juncture.

Key Speakers:

Dr Thomas Austin, University of Sussex

Dr James Harvey, University of Greenwich

Professor Martin O'Shaughnessy: University of Nottingham

Dr Dorota Ostrowska: Birkbeck University of London

Dr Richard Rushton, Lancaster University
