Drawing on the success of previous events, the Film Studies department seeks to draw together scholars and enthusiasts of early British cinema.
This one-day symposium is intended as a forum for the presentation of new research, scholarship and archival work into film culture in Britain and its Empire before 1930.
Presentations are invited from people working in all aspects of this field, including cinema in the wider context of theatrical, literary and popular cultures, cinema and World War I, cinema and technology, exhibition, reception and critique.
In the light of a current project investigating the transition between silent and sound cinema in the UK (1927-1933), papers on this topic are particularly welcome.
An early evening screening of Paul Czinner’s The Woman He Scorned (1929) will be included in the day’s events.
