Cities in Crisis: Cinema, Media and Urban Space.
09.45-18.45 Saturday 19th November 2016. Department of Geography, Room K4U.12, 4th Floor, King's Building, Strand Campus, King’s College London.
Researchers from the Department of Film Studies at King’s College London are excited to announce a one day cinema, media and urbanism symposium. Life in the contemporary metropolis poses a range of challenges such as overpopulation, pollution, gentrification, urban sprawl and socio-political conflict. While it is widely acknowledged that cinema and media play an active role in efforts to negotiate these environmental obstacles, just how and to what effect they do so remains an open and fertile field of academic research. A series of papers, including keynote presentations by Prof Myria Georgiou (London School of Economics) and Dr Lawrence Webb (University of Sussex), will aim to reposition vital elements of this evolving debate and analyse the current impact of cinema and media on the world’s cities in crisis.
This one day symposium will conclude with a screening of Enrico Masi's Sur Les Jeux Olympiques, a round table discussion chaired by Dr Scott Rodgers (Birkbeck, University of London) and a wine reception.
