   From Detlef Sierck to Douglas Sirk: Film/History and the "Art" of
                  Adaptation and Trnsformation in Exile
An International Symposium on the Hundredth Anniversary of the
Director's Birth October 31- November 2, 1997
   Dartmouth College, Hanover NH 03755
The fame of Duglas Sirk - until 1941 Detlef Sierck- has rested on his
1950' melodramas for Universal. This centennial conference seeks to
establish a broader, more diverse and less monolithic picture of a
director who worked in both Germany and America, first in theater and
then in film.
*Papers and panels will treat a wide variety of topics, focussing on
both Sirk's work for a Nazi-controlled UFA and various studios in the
United States and the continuities and discontinuities between these
two bodies of work. Approaches will include questions dealing with
film history, history of production and reception, feminism and
melodrama, star discourse, queer discourse, issues of race and
representation, and politics and ideology.
* Film screenings will include some rarely seen early German films
and some of the lesser seen American films.
