Cinéma-monde: Film, Borders, Translation

Stirling, UK (24.– 26.5.2018), 16. May 2018.

Conference, Stirling, UK, 24 – 26 May 2018

The term ‘cinéma-monde’ has been coined and developed in recent years to respond to a shift in both the Francophone film industry (emergence of new production ‘hubs’ with a truly global reach, e.g. Montreal) and the way in which Francophone film is studied. This conference brings together filmmakers, along with scholars from North America, Scotland and elsewhere in the UK, to debate these issues via engagement with key faultlines around: the transnational; borders, movement and migration; inequalities and the world system; and language.

We are grateful for financial support from the Institute of Modern Languages Research (Regional Conference Grant), Edinburgh University Press, I.B.Tauris, the Quebec Government Delegation in London, and the Division of Literature & Languages, University of Stirling.
