Organized by the Department of German & Scandinavian, this interdisciplinary conference hosted at the University of Oregon's EMU and Center for Art Research buildings in Eugene brings together scholars from the humanities, women and gender studies, cinema studies, and art fields to explore the intersection of feminist film theory and experimental film making since the 1970s.
The conference will feature several panel discussions as well as screenings of two experimental films. Guest speakers from the University of Toronto, Princeton University, Goethe University Frankfurt, University of Alberta, and Université de Tours will join researchers from the University of Oregon to discuss the following key topics: video production as feminist action in the 70s and 80s; (sub)urban housing and domestic spheres; transnational, intersectional, digital and embodied feminisms; materiality, memory, perception.
The conference is free and open to all, including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and community members. For more detailed information and a program of events, go to https://gerscan.uoregon.edu/conferences/film-conference-2019/.
