Please join us for the Fourth International Women and the Silent Screen
Conference which will be held at the University of Guadalajara in the
beautiful colonial city of Guadalajara, Mexico June 7 through June 10, 2006.
Following the first Women and the Silent Screen Conference, held in Utrecht
in 1999, the second in Santa Cruz, CA in 2001, and the third in Montreal in
2004, the Guadalajara conference will include scholarly panels and workshops
that advance research on historical and theoretical issues related to women
and silent cinema from 1898 through 1937.
The conference will feature three plenary sessions: “Feminist
Historiography;” “Gender Matters: The Politics of the Archive;” and “Women
and Cinema Across Continents.” In addition, we will screen rare examples of
silent Mexican, Latin American, European, and U.S. films.
Submit a 150-word abstract, a paper title, and a two-line biographical
statement for either a panel or a workshop by October 1, 2005 to Patricia
Torres San Martín at [log in to unmask]
