Marx, Cinema and the Present Day. University of Central Lancashire, 1-2 July 2015


2nd Marx at the Movies Conference Marx, Cinema and the Present Day

University of Central Lancashire July 1-2, 2015 We invite papers that address relevance of Marxism to aspects of contemporary film and other forms of moving image. We encourage abstracts from film historians, film practitioners and all sorts of amateurs interested in the intersection between Marx’s thought (and other Marxists, such as Benjamin, Bloch, Lefebvre, Deleuze, Rancière, Badiou, Hardt and Negri, and Harvey) and film. We understand film broadly, including all forms of visual culture that project movement, including television, documentary, music video, games and animation.

Dr. William Brown, Roehampton University

Dr. Eva Näripea, Film Archives of the National Archives of Estonia/Estonian Academy of Arts
