Future Past of Visual Culture Symposium @ the Tate Britain
Saturday 15 June 2002  10.00-17.30

The Visual Culture Series explores different aspects of the discipline of
visual culture,
tracing its history and speculating on its future. The second conference in
this series
organised by the Department of Visual Culture and Media at Middlesex
University and Tate
Britain explores relations between theories and practices of film and visual
culture. Starting
from her influential article "Woman as Sign", Professor Elizabeth Cowie will
present a
selected history of film and gender theory drawing on extracts as diverse as
Morocco, Chocolat, and Milicia Tomic's Portrait of My Mother. This is
followed by a
discussion chaired by Dan Harries (Middlesex University) between theorist
Barry Curtis, 
film maker Issac Julien, and Professor Elizabeth Cowie. The afternoon
session is 
chaired by Adrian Rifkin (Middlesex University) with discussions by Rob
Stone and 
Lyn Turner from Goldsmiths College and Jon Thompson from Middlesex

Tickets: 15 (8 concessions).
