This conference explores the role of cinema in reflecting and contributing to concepts of historical events, identity politics, cultures, cults and celebrity. Histories, as narratives of both personal and public events, identities and societies, are created, recreated and deconstructed in film. This conference will explore how cinematic depictions of histories differ from that of other media, and how cinema's depiction influences both society and other media. Graduate scholars and professors from the U.S., Canada and beyond give 33 presentations. Georgetown University Professor Caetlin Benson-Allott will deliver the keynote address.
