Thanks to the tireless work of the University of Hull, particularly Dr. Lin FENG at the School of Histories, Languages, and Cultures, the international conference “Rethinking Film Genres: East Asian Cinema and Beyond” will be held according to its original schedule between September 14-15 at UK’s University of Hull. This year’s conference involves over 50 people – speakers, chairs, keynotes, organizers – from many different nations, supporting the transnational and intercultural focus of the conference program. It will address a number of topical and relevant areas from genre construction and transnational movement to distribution and consumption practices and formations of identity.
Running alongside the conference will be two film screenings taking place in our state of the art cinema facility in Middleton Hall.
The conference looks forward with considerable enthusiasm to the wide-ranging papers and research areas that will be delivered during the conference and which forms part of a rich academic community – of both emerging and established scholars –from many different parts of the globe, and from many different cultural backgrounds.
