Precarity in Contemporary European Fiction and Documentary Film: Depictions and Discourses
The symposium assembles European scholars and researchers to discuss the representation of precarity in contemporary and recent European cinema. The discussion will focus on both the differences in the diverse countries and regions, and on shared tendencies and structural similarities. We will investigate prevalent topics and the recurring use of some character-types or roles; we will take a closer look at narrative and formal tendencies as well as prevailing genres; we will consider the diversity of national or regional cinematographic traditions (in the representation of poverty and precarity) in which the new films are positioned; finally, we will debate the extent to which productions refer to broader recent social change and political debates.
Admission is open and free. Due to limited space, we kindly request that you register by sending an email to .
The symposium will be held in English
