at the Institute for the Arts and Humanities, Hyde Hall

For decades, German cinema has played a crucial role on the international film market and on festival circuits and this has only intensified in recent years. Its prominence abroad reflects how production and distribution modes increasingly move toward transnational cooperation and markets. German cinema's transnationalism, translingualism and mobility are reflected in film narratives and styles that deal with global issues such as identity, immigration, borders, and assimilation. Our workshop seeks to not only discuss current trends in transnational German film, but also place more recent films in a longer historical trajectory. The workshop will feature keynotes from two respected scholars who have done important work on transnational German cinema, Erica Carter (King's College London) and Randall Halle (The University of Pittsburgh). In addition, the workshop will include four presentations by scholars from local universities doing cutting-edge research in this field.
