Keynote: 'Clint Eastwood's Inscrutable America'

 Edward Gallafent, University of Warwick


Clint Eastwood is an American monument and his work in cinema is
emblematic of five decades of cultural change. As his reputation has
grown he has become the subject of increasing scholarly interest,
particularly since his later work carries a progressively complex
conception of America to international audiences. This two day
conference will explore Eastwood's legacy and achievements and will
offer a range of perspectives that explore his contribution to the
cultural imagination and to the art of film. Confirmed speakers include
Adrian Martin, Frances Bonner, Glen Creeber, Leighton Grist and Alastair


Registration is $50 waged, $30 students. For a registration form and

This conference is organised and sponsored by the Cultural History
Project, Faculty of Arts, University of Queensland.
