>Re-viewing Space: Space and Place in European Cinema
>ECRF Conference, University of Bath, 24-26 April, 2003
>
>Since the pioneering work on Space by Bachelard and Lefebvre, the
>concepts of Space and Place have been central concerns of Anthropology
>and Social Geography. In the past decade they have attracted growing
>attention in Film, Literature and Cultural Studies, leading to work on
>urban and rural, local and national, real and imagined/ remembered
>spaces, and themes such as rootedness/ rootlessness, and taking and
>losing possession of space.
>The third annual conference of the European Cinema Research Forum (ECRF)
>aims to develop this approach, examining hitherto neglected aspects of
>the cinematic construction of space in Europe. As keynote speakers we
>hope to have a European director and a leading researcher in the field.
>
>Fuller details will be announced in the Autumn, together with listings
>of the previous ECRF conference papers, on an ECRF website and resource
>database which are currently under construction.
>
>Abstracts of 250 words should be sent as email attachments to either
>Wendy Everett [log in to unmask] or Axel Goodbody [log in to unmask] by
>November 1, 2002. They may be on any aspect of the conference theme, but
>the organisers would particularly welcome papers which contribute to one
>of the following strands. Please indicate the strand to which your paper
>most comfortably belongs.
>
>- mapping the self: place/ space and personal identity
>- symbolic places and national/ regional identity
>- home
>- contested spaces
>- marginal spaces, peripheries
>- shifting and unstable borders and boundaries
>- European spaces and the transposition of Hollywood tropes
>
>Accommodation: Participants are responsible for arranging their own
>accommodation. Rooms on campus will probably be in short supply, but the
>University of Bath Accommodation Office [log in to unmask] will
>provide further information, and supply a list of local B&Bs and hotels,
>in due course.
