‘The Girl in Global Cinema’ Symposium
Haldane Room |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
The symposium aims to broaden the scope of work considering girls, girl culture, and its representations and resonances within cinema. We are looking to move beyond an Anglo-American focus, and keen to bring aesthetic, cultural studies, and sociological approaches into dialogue with each other.
The symposium will address:
i) the existence of ‘girl culture’ in cinema, and especially the global relevance of this concept, as well as the interaction of ‘postfeminism’ with local cultures;
ii) the articulation of contemporary girlhoods within a wide range of films from around the world (beyond the narrow canon of Anglo-American examples that have dominated scholarship so far);
iii) the mobilization of the girl in film to problematize understandings of subjectivity and identity, and how are this is articulated at the aesthetic level.
